Partying, bathing suits, and beautiful women are often considered specialties of Brazil (although Miami comes in at a close second). Tonight you can enjoy all of these things and more at the Blame It on Rio party at the Raleigh Hotel. Get the New Years debauchery started early at this celebration, which features a Brazilian DJ and water dancers in the pool from 9:00 to 11:00. It might be difficult to resist joining these women of the water, especially after downing the complimentary Leblon caipirinhas from 9:00 to 10:00, but your senses will be restored and absorbed at 11:00, when the beautiful DJ Sky Nellor takes the stage. Further adding to the aesthetics will be the Wilhelmina models strutting their stuff. The event will be guest list only, so be sure to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fri., Dec. 29, 9 p.m.
