New Years Eve 2019 Guide | LA

by Paulette Ely

For as long as I can remember, my parents have spent New Years Eve in bed together with champagne and caviar for a night of luxury to ring in the New Year. However, most of us are not so lucky, and we have to drink copious amounts of $12 Champagne before we can get anyone in our beds New Years Night- frill fish eggs excluded from the picture completely. Hopefully, as the 31st turns into the 1st night of 2019, we will all be able to forget the shit show that was this past year and flirt with the idea of new experiences and better choices. But not so fast, we must all raise our glasses to all the bad decisions we’ve made in 2018 and finish out the year with a bang (whatever kind of ‘bang’ you wish). Follow Flaunt’s New Years Eve Guide for your final festivities of 2018:
