The end of the year can be stressful, filled with grueling soul-searching and scrappy battles at shopping malls for the last cat-of-the-day calendar. Party your worries away with today’s Groupon: for $45 you get two VIP tickets to the New Year’s Eve celebration at Wish UltraLounge (a $90 value), valid on December 31, 2011, starting at 8 pm.
At Wish UltraLounge, over-21 guests dance the night and year away to custom beats spun by DJ Robert Pennington of 4th District Music. The benefits of VIP access start at the door, where exclusive revelers skip long lines to stroll inside the club via special entrance. Once inside, VIP guests receive free range of the entire club, allowing them a chance to hang out in the VIP room and trounce general-admission visitors in hide and seek. At midnight, confetti cannons explode with excitement and noisemakers toot their approval while balloons and $2,000 in cash float down from the ceiling. Party participants toast to 2012 with a free flute of Moet champagne at midnight. Guests can document their hairdos or mastery of sign language in the club’s photo booth, and disappear into the night with a sack of deluxe party favors in the wee hours.
