What’s your favorite New Year’s tradition? When people ask me, I always jump to New Year’s Midnight Kiss. There’s nothing better than saying goodbye to 2017 than locking lips with the one you desire and more…
It’s important to get started before midnight to higher your chances of locking lips. I call it the WARM UP. Whether your stretching before an intense workout or grabbing an appetizer before the main course, it’s is always important to WARM UP before the main event. You can do this by organizing a pregame, invite your date and make your date feel comfortable by introducing and them to your friends over a few drinking games. The fact that your plus one decided to spend New Year’s Eve with you and your friends is already a plus! Now it’s up to you to be bold and make a statement that you are fun to be around. Be sure to get an early flirt in to test the waters. If early on flirting goes well, then be sure to keep it going the rest of the night.
This goes for both ladies and gents, be bold and confident as midnight approaches. Be sure to keep eye contact with your date, many people would agree with this, keep them around you. If you are the nervous type, then grab yourself a drink or three to steady your nerves.
As the countdown begins, make sure you keep eye contact with your date, and guys make sure you have your glasses of champagne ready for the cheers and the kiss!

Transportation is a big detail for any night out in New York City, but even more so on the night of New Years. It's imperative to make a responsible decision for your transportation, and there's a much better option than a ride share service. Party buses from Party Bus NYC offer much more room and amenities to enjoy. Plus, if you want to check out more than once scene, you aren't going to have to order a new vehicle each time.
