FLASH MOB PARTY TONIGHT! 2010 New Year’s Eve Meet & Howl at Midnight, Sheep’s Meadow, Central Park, NYC, under a rare Blue Full Moon!
As you may already know, tonight there will be a rare Blue Full Moon, which will be at its apex around midnight. The next Blue Moon on New Year’s Eve will not come around for another 29 years on December 31, 2028. I don't know about you, but I will be 71 by then, and likely not living in New York City anymore.
Thus, on this beautiful and rare occasion, I’m proposing we do something extra ordinary.
Every year, for some forty odd-something years, this day rolls around and I’m usually at a loss for how I want to celebrate New Year’s Eve.
By now, I know I don’t want to be at a club— it’s ludicrously too expensive, I know I won’t be able to get my money’s worth at the open bar, and I’ve been there, done that, one too many times.
I also know I don’t really want to drudge about in the snow in the streets of New York City, trying to hail a taxi in the freezing cold, ruthlessly competing against an onslaught of inebriated, and often belligerent, revelers.
Finally, what I do know and I am most certain of, is that New Year’s Eve has always been best celebrated amongst good, fun, and often, crazy friends. Because ultimately, it doesn’t matter what or where or why you are doing what you are doing, when you are with them.
Thus, I’m organizing a ku-razy, “somewhat”-spontaneous flashmob get-together in the snow, to howl at the biggest, baddest and bluest moon you’ll likely ever see in your lifetime at midnight, in the middle of Central Park, directly beneath the fullest moon of your lifetime.
We’ll meet at Sheep Meadow, directly across from the lights Tavern on the Green, which, by the way, will be lit for the last time tonight.
So, bring a bottle of bubbly, your snow boots, good cheer and be ready to howl at the moon.
Tonight, New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2009

11:30 Meet at Sheep’s Meadow in Central Park, across from Tavern on the Green,
