Not everyone was standing around the buffet table stuffing themselves on New Year’s Eve, or walking the streets during Baristaville’s First Night. One of our readers, Melissa, was in NYC – not at Times Square – but in Central Park, at the 4-mile EMERALD NUTS MIDNIGHT RUN:
I can’t believe how much fun the event was, despite the cold, the dark, and the crowds — my 3 least favorite things and I wasn’t bothered one bit! The live music and fireworks really created a festive environment, and dancing to “New York, New York” with all the costumed revelers by the bandshell was my first “magic moment” of the new year. No drunks, no fights and no hangover…what a way to kick-off 2008!
Mel added that mid-way through the course, runners were offered champagne at the watering hole. Did you celebrate New Year’s Eve differently this year?
