Got some money to burn to ring in 2012? Fans of Grant Achatz's Next restaurant, The Aviary cocktail lounge and the Office, it's basement bar, should know that both are available for rental on New Year's Eve. On Dec. 1, Achatz posted the following on his Facebook page:
"Here's something different for New Year's Eve: One Golden Ticket each to Next, the Aviary and the Office. Rather than get the tired champagne at midnight toast, why not rent out: Next for you and 61 friends; Aviary for you and 84 friends; the Office for you and 17 friends. You pick the friends, the music, the toast... let us make sure it's a genuine, once in a lifetime party. It won't be cheap, but these will be the best food and parties in the city. Email for pricing and details: NYE@nextrestaurant.com / NYE@theaviary.com. Serious inquiries only, please."
