Happy New Year NYC! Fireworks and Fatty Food

If you’re anywhere near as broke as I am, you’re gonna want to  head over to Brooklyn’s biggest (and cheapest!) party tonight at Grand Army Plaza. Sponsored by Borough President Marty Markowitz, there will be fireworks at midnight, and Free hot beverages starting at 11 p.m., when you can also listen to the Motown sounds of Blacksmith and Friends. They say the best locations for viewing the fireworks include: anywhere in Grand Army Plaza and along Prospect Park West between Grand Army Plaza and 9th Street. Details here.

11 p.m.

Prospect Park


Remember what we talked about on Tuesday?  Eating dinner!! Do it on the cheap-ish at Bark Hot Dogs in Park Slope.   Bark is throwing a three hour dinner pre-party. It’s $30 per person, and includes a half bottle of Gruet Blanc de noir sparkling wine, all-you-can-eat dogs, fries, onion rings and dessert.

6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

474 Bergen St, Park Slope

Like most kids, Ashley grew up in New Jersey. Unlike most kids the Friedman's televison set acted as a third parent, imbuing young Ashley with the stern moral values of Claire Huxtable, the dramatic tendencies of Brenda Walsh and the earnest hopefulness of the blond kid on Silver Spoons. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence Ashley made her way to the Park Slope area of Brooklyn where she can currently be found reading foreign fashion magazines, scouring ebay for vintage heels, eating out in restaurants and otherwise stretching her meager income as far as it will go in NYC.
