For your convenience, the link to get your New Year’s Eve tickets for our private party at Culture Club is:
http://newyears2014.DavidShapiro.net/

The prices went up for the All Access Pass (use of all 3 floors), but we kept the prices at $75 for the 2nd Floor Party Pass (use of 1st and 2nd Floor) for a bit longer.

As you know by now, the ticket includes 5 hours of premium open bar with all the name brand liquor, 2 DJs, light food, decorations, special lighting effects, 80s/90s decor, champagne toast, televised ball drop and, most importantly, a good group of people!

I spent over 2 months planning every possible detail of this event to ensure it runs smoothly from door to coat check to bar service. Take advantage of my hard work and join us for a very special and fun night!!

Any questions, call me at 212 579 4844.

David Shapiro asks, “Am I stupid?”

* New Year’s 2014 – Should I charge more? *
 
*  Winterfest 2014 – Jan 24th trip just about sold out *
 
I ran into a friend of mine at an event earlier in the week and she told me that she’s not coming to our New Year’s Eve party because she CAN afford to spend more at a different event…

I was little confused. Just because you can afford a higher ticket price to get the same value elsewhere, does that mean you should spend the money? 

Am I stupid for keeping the prices so low? Do I need to double the ticket price to create a higher value perception? We offer more in our New Year’s Eve event in regard to quality of drinks, food, music, atmosphere, caliber of guests and service than any other party I know about. 

I am not greedy and want people to enjoy New Year’s Eve without feeling ripped off. Unlike most New Year’s party companies, we stay in business year round and still want you to be happy with us after the ball drops.

Let me know your opinion about whether I should double the ticket price. Obviously, you probably want to buy your ticket before offering that advice 🙂

New Year’s Eve @ Culture Club Highlights

Your $75 ticket includes 5 hours of premium open bar (all the good stuff), light food, champagne toast, amazing music (80s, 90s, and a mix of all modern genres) from 2 DJs, watch the ball drop on a big screen TV and enjoy the company of 250 of our friends! Our party has the 2nd floor 100% private with access to other floor(s). 

You can buy your $75 tickets here http://newyears2014.davidshapiro.net/newyearseve 
before the next price increase goes into effect. 

Note: While Culture Club is an 80s-themed dance club, you can dress however you want to ring in the New Year. Also, we will be playing plenty of 80s music but we will not forget to mix in current genres of music.

Any questions, give me a call today at 212-579-4844.

Winterfest 2014 @ Mount Snow

► With purchase of New Year’s Eve ticket at Culture Club, you’ll receive a $25 credit towards any new booking for Winterfest 2014 – Our 2 big ski trips on Jan 24th and Feb 21st to Mount Snow (davidshapiro.net/events/winterfest2014).  

► The January 24th weekend trip is pretty much sold out. Call me today at 212-579-4844 and I will see if there is anything I can do to still accommodate you.

► February 21st has a little more space but we expect it to sell out soon as well.

Please call 212-579-4844 or email david@davidshapiro.net for latest prices and availability. We will have over 120 guests staying with us on each of this weekend. Definitely our 2 biggest ski trips ever! That’s the advantage of taking over a hotel instead of renting a house 🙂
 
Call 212-579-4844 or email david@davidshapiro.net for more info about NYE or the ski trips.
 
Hope everyone is having a great holiday season and I look forward to seeing you on New Year’s or at another event or trip in 2014!
 
Talk to you soon.

  New Year’s Eve 2014 @ Culture Club
  
New Year’s Eve 2014!
 
We booked the 2nd Floor Lounge at Culture Club 100% private for 250 of our nearest and dearest friends! You’ll have full access to the multi-color Rubik’s Cube-like first floor dance floor as well. For a nominal upgrade you can also wander into the impressive Nirvana Room on the 3rd floor.

Here was my thinking when choosing Culture Club for our NYE party this year: 

► I wanted something a little different and the 80s/90s theme and decor of Culture Club DEFINITELY has that!  We will have 2 different DJs playing so it will be a mix of 80s, 90s and more modern genres. Everyone loves 80s but we plan to mix it up throughout the night to keep it interesting!

► We wanted to be centrally located but far enough from the madness of Time Square. Culture Club is on 39th btw 5th and 6th. That’s perfect. Right?
► We wanted to party and celebrate without it being out of control so we booked our own private floor. Culture Club has 3 levels in total and we took the one in the middle for convenience. So you have the best of both worlds: a small party of our own friends mixed in with a much larger party of new people to meet!
► We wanted good service. We have our own bar and wait staff dedicated just to our floor!
► We wanted our friends to still have some money left to use in 2014 and not spend it all on an overpriced NYE ticket! Tickets are just $75 for 5 hours of premium open bar! Yes, all the good stuff is included!! They even have Monster (my own favorite) if you need some extra energy to keep on celebrating.

The prices will continue to go up, but $75 is definitely still a good deal.

  Winterfest 2014

 

As you know by now, we have our 2 biggest ski trips EVER going to Mount Snow on the weekends of Jan 24th and Feb 21st.
 
Call 212-579-4844 and we can help you select the right room category based on your personal preferences, budget and our availability*. Please note availability is becoming quite limited, so contact us as soon as possible to discuss options.
 
We’re also pretty good with matching up compatible roommates, so you don’t need to book with friends. Friends are welcome but by the end of each weekend we will all be friends. I know that sounds a little cheesy, but it’s true 🙂

We are co-hosting the trip with Club Getaway and combining our staff, resources and social networks to create 2 amazing ski weekend vacations. Between us. we will have over 120 guests going each weekend. Some ski. Some snowboard. Some do neither and just want to enjoy all the parties and activities we have planned!

We literally bought out all available space at the Snow Lake Lodge. The Snow Lake Lodge is a large Mount Snow-owned hotel property. It’s a short ride on the free Mount Snow “MOOver” shuttle route and walking distance to the Snow Barn.

You can book a Single room, a Double, Triple or Quad. Most rooms have 2 double beds.The big advantage of a hotel over getting a house (like I used to do in past winters) is that each room is completely private with it’s own bathroom. Just reply to this email and I will send you over more detailed info on the types of rooms and prices for each.
 
We will, of course, all share and enjoy the common areas of the hotel including it’s bar/restaurant (called Walt’s Pub), indoor and outdoor hot tubs, sauna and other facilities. Each room has a TV and phone, with free WiFi in the common areas.  

We also have a privately chartered ‘party bus’ bus leaving Fridays at 5:30pm from Midtown. Drinks and snacks make the ride go faster 🙂 Plus you can avoid all the hassles of carpooling or the expense of renting a car. 

The bus will leave Mount Snow on Sunday after the slopes close so you have the opportunity for 2 full days of skiing, snowboarding or whatever you plan on doing with your vacation.

Weekend Itinerary:

► Friday night: Welcome reception at the Snow Lake Lodge
► Saturday morning: continental breakfast
► Saturday day: choose from skiing, snowboarding, snow shoeing, tubing or just hanging out with the group at the base lodge of Mount Snow.
► Saturday late afternoon: Live entertainment and happy hour at Cuzzins
► Saturday night: dinner, pre-party at the hotel and continue the party at the 
Snow Barn. The Snow Barn also offers live music.
► Sunday morning: continental breakfast
► Sunday day: once again, choose your activity.
► Sunday late afternoon: head back home 😦

Prices continue to increase as we sell out the trips. All prices include 2 nights lodging, most meals, some drinks and all the parties. Plus, we locked in group rates on rentals, lift tickets and a whole bunch of other activities.
 
We spaced the weekends out enough so you can easily join us for both. Plus, we are offering a 10% discount if you book them together!
 
Please call me at 212-579-4844 to discuss in detail or email david@davidshapiro.net if you just want to review the current price list.

Hard to believe it’s almost New Years..

Posted on

Hard to believe it’s almost New Years…whatever your plans hope you have a great time celebrating!

If you want to still join us, let me know and please try to get your tickets soon. Prices are $75 right now so please purchase before the next price increase. For 5 hours of premium open bar, food, 2 DJs, champagne and all the New Year’s Eve extras that you’d expect, it’s the perfect way to ring in 2014!!

I really and truly don’t know when it will go up again. We programmed our system to automatically raise prices as we hit certain benchmarks in selling out the space. It’s kind of like an airline website when the prices keep going up as the plane sells out. You keep checking it, hoping the fare will come down but for some reason it never does…

Hope everyone is having a great holiday

Hope everyone is having a great holiday week and not working too hard (or maybe not at all). Christmas has passed and now begins the mad rush for making New Year’s Eve plans. Many of you already bought tickets for our party and were rewarded for your decisiveness with a $65 ticket.

Prices our now $75. Still reasonable and only a modest $10 ‘procrastination penalty’

Tickets include 5 hours of premium open bar (all the good stuff), light food, champagne toast, amazing music (80s, 90s, and a mix of all modern genres) from 2 DJs, watch the ball drop on a big screen TV and I will be your MC counting down with all of you! It’s not always wise to hand me a microphone after a few drinks, but please let me have my fun with it. Then lie to me later that I did a good job

You can buy your tickets here http://newyears2014.davidshapiro.net/newyearseve before the next price increase goes into effect.

You know you want to party Like It’s 1999 (or 89, whatever), so join us for a great night with 250 friends in our own private party at the renowned Culture Club! Our party has the 2nd floor 100% private with access to other floor(s).

To acknowledge our partners on this event:

► Club Getaway has invited all past resort guests to join the festivities and are sending their best staff to help us host this important celebration!

► Joonbug bought out the whole venue and then we partnered with them to take over the 2nd Floor. We can thank them for putting together this amazing package for us on New Year’s Eve.

► The managers and owners of Culture Club have been a pleasure to work with in planning the night! They are custom decorating our floor, adding special lighting effects and will produce a memorable event with their top staff on hand from beginning to end!!

Any questions, give me a call today at 212-579-4844. Even if you are working, there’s no one else in your office. So, no one will notice if you give me a ring to make plans to ring in the new year with us 🙂
