Marc's birthday is New Year's Eve, so we always throw a party. It's tradition at this point. And whatever we end up calling it every year - Cocktails & Countdowns, Tipsy & Toasty, Drinks & Dancing, or Wining & Dining - I love the way it's always a fun excuse to get dressed up and raise a glass to my favorite person.
Since I firmly believe that a key ingredient to any good party (and all aspects of life in general) is a good soundtrack, I always try to make sure that the cocktails we host prior to a fancy New Year's Eve birthday dinner set the right mood for the evening.
This year's playlist is mostly pop, with a little bit of an indie infusion (for street cred, obviously), and heavy on the beats (courtesy of a few remixes). And I tried to mix in a little fun factor, too.
Oh, and happy almost New Year!
