A couple of New Year's Eve party ideas

For those of you who are scrambling to make New Year's plans, here are a couple of ideas for what may just be the party for you.

The Hotel Danube

The staff here has prepared a special "Romantic Italy" celebration where you can scream Salu! all evening, and yell Buona Notte later. The cost is 2,300 Sk per adult and it includes a welcome drink, a special present, dinner, music, festivities, a raffle and what organizers are guaranteeing will be a lot of fun. No need to get a babysitter, either; there's a special playroom set up for children (230 Sk up to 12-years-old) as the adults while the evening away.

SNP square

This plaza is going to be hopping for anybody looking for fun with a political bent. The Slovak Democratic Coalition, that grouping of parties opposed to the government, will have a musical gala to celebrate the fifth year of Slovakia's independence and ring in a year that they no doubt hope will finish with their members perched in the crowsnest of power.
