Make sure you watch the ball drop at midnight tonight, or if you’re up for it, head to Times Square and watch it in person! If you do go, you’ll witness some action like a 10pm confetti drop! Papa John’s will be dropping 6 inch coupons for its cinnapie, and the CEOÂ and founder himself, John Schnatter will be delivering pizza into the crowd. Have fun and Happy New Year!
Ice skating at Bryant Park is still free to enter and is one of the best places to skate in the city. Before or after you’re done skating, head up to Celsius, a glass enclosed lounge where you can get fun cocktails and tasty food to warm you up. Celsius allows you to get a great view of the rink and the park all while staying warm by the heat lamps, that is if you chose to go out on the terrace. Enjoy winter, grab your skates and head to Bryant Park!
