Happy New Year from AspenSpin. Thank god that's over. Click: Aspen: 1/1/11.
New Year's Eve in Aspen is always a BIG night. This year; no bomb threats, no celebrity melt-downs, no ponzi schemes--- just good clean fun. All the show ponies and the G550's made it into Aspen safely. Shiny puffy coats and barely driven range rovers were a dime a dozen. Sub-zero temps (minus 15)greeted the mini-skirts and high heels on the mall. Fur coats (dead mascots) helped keep people warm through 2 sets of fireworks. If "fireworks" were a country, Aspen would capital. Is it weird that fireworks bore us?
In the past we've described New Year's eve as amatuer night----- but in Aspen the transition to 2011 was very,very professional. Interpret that in a variety of contexts.
Men's Journal & Cohn/Messner/McLendon threw a HUGE bash at Limelight Lodge.
