6:30 pm: Live Music, Cocktails and Hors D'oeuvres.
New York's Grand Central Station is where it all begins. The Big Apple is known for fabulous food and flavor. Enjoy delicacies from China Town, the Lower East Side, and South Street Seaport. Sip the hippest cocktails and turn back the clock to the era of Big Band, set to the sounds of Westside Inflection.
8 pm: Dinner and Couture.
The journey continues in an Italian piazza where guests will dine on an authentic Italian meal al fresco. The menu is created by Chef Giuseppe Ciuffa of Giuseppe Restaurants & Fine Catering. Meanwhile, feast your eyes and satiate your palate for glamour with the latest in haute couture during a Lanvin fashion show.
9:30 pm: The After Party.
The party only gets better as we continue on to six fabulous destinations. Have a slice of pizza in NYC, treat yourself to dessert and champagne in Paris, and refresh and relax in Rio de Janeiro at the Suja Juice cocktail bar. Savor a stogie and a Scotch in South Beach Miami’s hippest Cigar Lounge. Then, for the truly adventurous, head over to Amsterdam for some red lights, sultry beats, and surprise performances. Feeling lucky? Take a jaunt to Monte Carlo to show off your best poker face, and finally, ring in the New Year with us as the ball drops in New York's Times Square.
