New Year’s Eve is over-rated, people have too many expectations, it’s too crowded … Are all these cliches true? I did some party hopping research on New Year’s Eve to three area hot spots to find out: The Park Hyatt Washington, the W Hotel Washington, and then over to 14th and U Street to Marvin and the latest Eric Hilton property, Jamaican-themed venue Patty Boom Boom. What were my findings? Hey, New Year’s Eve in Washington is, in fact, fun!
