New Year's Eve gift for clubgoers: lower tabs
Well, as least there's one reason to be thankful for these tough economic times.
Sunset Boulevard club operators say business has been so bad they're resorting to slashing cover charges and offering free hors d'oeuvres to bolster business on New Year's Eve. One example cited in a story by Tiffany Hsu in today's Business section:
The Viper Room considered setting New Year's Eve ticket prices around $200 but opted instead for a basic cover of $50, or $100 with drinks and other goodies included.
If you're looking for someplace to party on New Year's Eve, here are some suggestions from the Guide. And more: Places to dine on New Year's Eve, as well as restaurants and eateries that will be open on New Year's Day.
