NYE – Hotel Figueroa
Originally I was supposed to go to Union Station for their 20’s themed open bar New Years celebration, but with tickets being about $165, not many people were up for it. We found a similar event at Hotel Figueroa with a Casablanca theme for $30, but no open bar.
We met up at Vanessa’s house and took the Metro since it was free from 9pm – 2am. It was cold for LA standards. The place turned out to be worth it for the price of admission.
When we got there, it wasn’t too packed, so me manages to get a small table under some flamed lanterns to keep us warm. We got a few drinks and tacos and just enjoyed the night! They had some performances, including a mermaid whom dove into the swimming pool. Images below:
Vanessa and I met a girl downstairs by the restrooms and she was awesome! Hi Faten!!
The clock struck 12am and we all celebrated! We kept drinking, dancing and eating tacos.
Fun event overall, until the end when some drunk girl took my pea coat. It was 30+ degrees and I was walking the streets of LA. Just FYI, for us SoCal residents, this IS cold!! The first day of the new year and I have a story to remember.
