"Best 2k I Ever Spent!" How The Silverlake Manor Did New Year's

by Alex Gilman · January 6, 2011

Maybe the biggest tragedy of New Year's Eve is you can only be in one place at one time. Thus, while I thoroughly enjoyed getting confused in NYC with my fellow stranded travelers, I couldn't help but feel a bit jealous knowing that while the drunkest of us were already starting to pass out around 2 a.m. EST, another epic house party was just starting in Silver Lake...

The Silverlake Manor is a private residence with an unusually strong commitment to dispensing massive amounts of beer and spirits to friends and family against a backdrop of gorgeous views and an indoor/outdoor party dynamic to keep the whole family happy. In other words, these guys are innovators. Let's take a look at how they kept the house party alive this NYE and see if we can get any ideas...

Have a Gigantic Tree

This may seem self-explanatory, but shockingly, there are still people out there who don't understand what an enormous, light-covered tree can do for your party. These must be the same people who don't understand why you'd want to put cheese on a pizza. Gigantic trees are AWESOME.

Encourage Creative Jacketing

Hugh Hefner is 132 years old and is engaged to a hot blond who could conceivably be his great-granddaughter. You say it's the multi-million dollar publishing empire. I say it's the fabulous collection of bathrobes and smoking jackets. Agree to disagree.

Bottle Sparklers!

Because we love them. Got a problem with that?
