New Year's Eve - fun place eat before midnight with 10 people
price? time? cuisine preference?
just a word of caution...i did the times square ball drop last year and we got there at 3:30 and STILL had trouble getting to a reasonable location. everything is blocked off and there are thousands and thousands of people. i'm not sure you'll have very good luck going there AFTER dinner.
but best of luck though - if you can get within a reasonable distance of the ball, it's a blast!
