we were never the ones to state the obvious (yeah, right) but
THE BYT.GARUTACHI NYE BONANZAROO AT THE R’N’R HOTEL WAS A SUCCESS.
To say the least, or most.
800 guests would agree, we’re sure
(as well as whoever had the (un)fortunate job of cleaning up the space).
2 floors, 6 djs, and inordinate amount of booze and 8 hours of fun and frolic: captured.
Due to an excess (of progressively more incoherent as the night went on)
photography we decided to break this one up for you kids:
consume carefully and may 2007 be at least this much
see and be seen
in which: people look good, better and best, in groups of 1, 2, 3 and awesome. and can serve as memories for when all the bangs were still in place, lipstick was only on the lips and suits were not drenched in sparks. enjoy the brief moment of (sort) of classy.
in which: people get their funk on, and an inordinate amount of splits happens extremely early on in the evening.
Hands up bottoms down and all sorts of things in between
in which: svetlana has a megaphone (never a good idea) and there are more people in a dj booth than any respectable dj booth could handle. special thanks to john and austin for fanning the countdowners with the best of them.
also: bottles of champagne are the new glass.
in which: preludes to NYE (and beyond) kisses happen.
in which: IT IS time to pucker up. Indiscriminantly. And (overly but charmingly) entusiastically.
open bar and its consequences
in which: there is NOTHING LEFT TO DO but get, well, shitty (pardon the language, but you know, why beat around the shiny bracelet bush). Screams, jumps, being exceptionally bright young and thingy, rolling around the pool table and going on balloon popping rampages, all included. With a gratuituous boob grab or two thrown in for good measure.
