Thanks to everyone who has voted on our options for New Years Eve. It looks like it's neck and neck between 5 drink tickets and open bar...
Unfortunately, while I like Eli's suggestion to give people a choice between those two options, that isn't possible. The bar is worried that if we have some people partaking in open bar while others aren't, that the open bar people will share drinks with others. It IS possible, however, to give people a choice between 5 drink tickets and no drink tickets, but everyone has to have the same food options. So if we combine the results of those who want a 50+ option with those who want a $100+ option, they are winning... I don't yet know exactly what the price options will be, but this was a rough estimate.
We're also working on themes: we're probably going to do China again, because those Mai Tais and appetizers were SO good last year (spring rolls and crab rangoons.) But we're probably going to change the other two cities/countries. We're thinking maybe Monaco,Monte Carlo (so we can keep those yummy pastries from last year, but we need to come up with a themed drink) and Dublin, Ireland (we're probably going to take the dinner theme from here, and beer/wine will be the drink.) Thoughts?
The other main thing we're thinking about is trying to even out the sexes for this event. Not that we'll make it exclusively a singles event - obviously we still want our couples and groups of friends to attend, however, there are always more women than men and we'd like to even that out. What do you guys think?
Would the $100 option include dessert?
A reminder of the Great Gatsby, but instead of drinks of long ago how about food of that time period and music as well.
How is 31 to 19 neck and neck for the $100 and $150 options, respectively?
Also, how are you going to even out the sexes? Will you limit the attendance once it gets to a certain number of each?
So based on the beer poll, we're going to have Guinness on draft and Harp in bottles available. Our next thing we need your opinion on is music. We'll have two types of music - dance music on 2 floors, and a yet-to-be-named type music on the top floor. What do you think it should be? Give us your thoughts and opinions - make this YOUR event!
