New Years Eve was almost a week ago, so you've definitely had a chance to recover in order to start the year off right with this energetic boozy brunch party. This Asian inspired restaurant, Pranna, has taken a tip from some of New York City’s hottest clubs (such as LAVO which we told you about last week) - party brunch isn’t just for the rich and fabulous anymore. For $45 dollars guests get a full entrée, endless drinks for the majority of the afternoon and a full-on dance party (dancing on tables is highly encouraged.) This brunch doesn’t have exactly the same glitz and glamour as some other party brunches in the city, but it’s a great budget alternative and there isn’t a bouncer at the door to judge your outfit or your guy-to-girl ratio. Despite the listed start time of 1pm on the website, we recommend getting there closer to 3pm for food and 4pm for dancing, though the DJ keeps the music loud the entire time. Insider’s tip: beware of the screwdrivers, they’re pretty much straight vodka.
