Rock & Rye

We've got a prize on the last day of Gritmas that's sure to take the cake: 2 tickets to the Rock & Rye New Year's Eve Bash at AC Hotel and Capella on 9 (10 Broadway St.).

105 years ago on the site of the current AC Hotel, the Langren Hotel threw a grand opening bash, the Rock & Rye Ball. Today, the hotel is looking back to this glamorous event and putting their own contemporary stamp on it with their New Year's Eve party.

Come dressed to the nines as your favorite era (“From Flapper to Funk”), and everything else will be taken care of. You'll head up to the 9th floor of the hotel, Cappela on 9, where two different areas will feature Prohibition-era classic cocktails and modern, creative cocktails.Hulton Archive/Getty Images

Your ticket gets you a welcome cocktail, hors d'ouevres from 9-11, giveaways, live music from a brass jazz band lead by Anne Coombs in the Capella Speakasy, and a DJ set from Phantom Pantone and friends in the Capella Lounge. Also included? The all-important champagne toast at midnight.

The evening starts at 9 p.m. and lasts until 1 a.m. We can't think of a better way to say hello to 2018.

Estimated Value: $100
