Before we get too far into 2007, let us not forget those who suffered in the name of New Year's Eve celebrations. In the wee hours of the 2006/2007 changeover, anything can happen, and does. It's not all fun and games, to be sure. For instance, as Page Six has it today:
Clubgoers who dropped $250 a head to party at Stereo on New Year's Eve were not amused when their big night was cut short by a celebrity invasion. Impulse Productions and Heineken were throwing the bash, and revelers were promised they could party down until 3:30 a.m. But everyone was kicked out at 2:30 to make room for a whole crew of A-listers who had earlier been whooping it up at the Hudson Hotel. Stereo owner Michael Satsky ushered 200 celebrants in through the back door, including Christina Aguilera, Jordan Bratman, John Mayer, Jessica Simpson and Topher Grace. "Twenty-ninth Street was bumper to bumper with black SUVs," said our source. Inside the club, it was like "a love competition" to see who could make out the longest: "It was Jessica and John vs. Christina and Jordan. Both couples were fully locking lips and spooning into the early morning."Michael Satsky, history buffs will note, once controlled a stake in the short-lived but somewhat underrated Smoked.
