    Its because its in Times Square where a gazillion people gather to see the ball drop. You need to avoid the area at all costs if you're trying to get around the city tomorrow night.

    Sounds like the applebees is near the ball drop so the price is really for location. Probably not a bad deal with all things considered.

    Even jerseyguys know to avoid it.

    I've been in NYC for New Year's Eve enough times to say I've been there, done that.

    I'd rather get a nice slice of pizza, or some excellent Chinese food.
    Applebee's? I don't think so.

    Those people are standing for lots of hours with no restrooms, drinks, or any other niceties that we enjoy

    $700 for couple with a seat, restroom, food and drinks on NYE in times square seems like a bargain when you think about it.

    Anyone who pays that has too much money in their pocket. I don't care if the mayor and president are on the quest list. $750 for a night out at Applebee's is just plain cocko IMHO.

    For that price I would sit that all day/night until a few minutes before the ball dropped. :wink2:

    I've worked the Dick Clark NYE show for a good 7 years now. The first year I watched the ball drop from the 7th floor of the building. A few times I've walked outside during the evening, but mostly when I had to fix something. This year I never walked outside and the only reason we watched the show was to time our midnight toast!

    I am beyond over it and only do it for the money. But I do appreciate that people, especially tourists, want to be here. The problem with the Applebees deal is that you are not guaranteed a view of the ball.
