The first people to successfully paint the town red spent more time haphazardly assembling scaffolding and arguing over who got to be the "foreman" than enjoying the results. Take the planning out of carousing with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one ticket to Bling! in the New Year on Saturday, December 31, at 9 p.m. at The Lincoln Center (a $50 value). If desired, Groupon purchasers may upgrade their ticket for an extra $35 to include the prime rib dinner buffet.
Three hours before 2011 becomes a memory, The Lincoln Center opens its art deco-inspired interior for the Bling! in the New Year celebration. Guests get their groove on in two massive party rooms with rhythms produced by live acts such as the Flying Spiders and VIBE. The beat goes on between sets thanks to hit-spinning DJs that illuminate the space with laser light shows as guests clink glassware bubbling with champagne toasts and soon-to-be broken resolutions. Five fully stocked bars provide drink specials all night and are peppered throughout to eliminate extensive line lingering and excessive boutonniere wilting. Throughout the evening, hosts will shower guests in $25,000 worth of gifts that include gems, jewels, and Luigi’s Italian Restaurant gift cards, with a grand prize of a one-carat diamond jewelry piece bestowed by Dodson’s Jewelers.
The Lincoln Center
The Lincoln Center is a 29,000-square-foot art-deco facility housing ballrooms and meeting halls ideal for weddings, galas, awards ceremonies, and other events. The center has six varying and multifunctional rooms, ranging from 200-person ballrooms to libraries and art galleries.
For weddings, the staff can take care of floral arrangements and catering, while corporate event planners use stage lighting, audio-visual services, and Ozzy Osbourne to make quarterly profit reports more exciting. The stylish ballrooms are put to good use with events such as the Bling! in the New Year party and a beer showcase sponsored by New Belgium Brewery.
