What better way to start off the New Year than with a hearty laugh, a good drink and a delicious meal? The Stand Restaurant and Comedy Club will provide all of that and more on New Years Eve. Come watch comedians Todd Barry, Yannis Pappas and Judas Friedlander of 30 Rock fame usher in the New Year with quality stand-up comedy.
The Stand will be featuring two shows as part of its New Years extravaganza, the first starting at at 8:00 PM and the second at 10:00 PM. Guests attending the 8 PM show will enjoy the midnight toast upstairs while guests seeing the 10:00 PM show will kiss glasses in the comedy lounge.
The Stand also offers a $135 inclusive package deal for the real aficionados. In addition to guaranteeing a seat at your choice of either of the two aforementioned shows, this robust option boasts a happy hour, hor’douerves and a midnight champagne toast accompanying the ball drop.
And finally, to keep your bellies full before, during and while you’re busting a gut, celebrity Hell’s Kitchen Chef Seth Levine will be on hand to serve up a whimsical array of delightful dishes.
