OK, folks. All week, I’ll be adding to your options for New Year’s Eve 2004. There are TONS of killer parties, great bands, cool DJs, and various other forms of ring-in-the-new celebrations.

So I’ll take it slow. One at a time, even.

Well, maybe not one at a time, exactly. Case in point: Mynt, Lotus, and Monarck. Three of Francois Saffiedine’s uber-slick lounges (he also owns Blue 67) are offering a combo package of sorts. If you make bottle service table reservations at Mynt for the “Dionysus” party, your entire party will receive wristbands that will get you into Lotus for “D’Or” and also into Monarck’s “Royal Affair.” Each ticket is worth $25 individually, and Mynt isn’t charging a cover, so it’s a steal of a deal.
