This Saturday night is one of my favorite events of the year. Last year DoItIndy had only been around for six weeks and we were fortunate enough to cover one of the coolest parties I had ever been too. The people are relaxed, the music is good, the beverages are a great price, and the NUVO VIP lounge is right on. It was a no-brainer for us to sponsor such a great event alongside Stella Artois, Paul Poteet, the Smiley Morning Show, HH Gregg and Nuvo. The Indianapolis New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball is the place to be.
The venue is absolutely perfect, nothing like historic Union Station in downtown Indianapolis. I used to come to the former mall when I was a kid with my parents and love to hang out. The Grand Hall is beautiful and the HUGE stained glass windows give the perfect backdrop to bring in the new year! People dance, people walked around in wild costumes, face painting, people in masks…a very cool time. The thing I like was that some people wore costumes, some wore dresses, some were casual, other in full evening wear – everyone had fun no matter what!
Tickets are reasonable, you are in downtown Indy, NUMEROUS cabs, NUMEROUS hotels, there is no reason why you shouldn’t come to this party if you live in Indianapolis and be safe. AND…it sells out every year so get your tickets NOW. Here is where you go – the website www.indynewyears.com. DoItTODAY! The band My Yellow Rickshaw will be playing and when they are done, a DJ steps in to give you all the tunes. PLUS…the emcee this year will be Dave Smiley from the 99.5 WZPL Smiley in the Morning Show and of course Paul Poteet will be in the house. Cool.
If you are interested in tickets, DoItIndy will be giving away 1 pair every day this week heading up into Saturday.
