NYE Ottawa: California Dreamin’

NYE 2016 Facebook Ad 1

With Christmas having crept up on us, this also means that NYE is just around the corner too. Ladies and gents, what are your plans for ringing in 2016?

We’ll be spending our NYE in California. Well, as close as we can get at least! Starfish Events will be hosting yet another sell-out event to ring in the new year. This year, the annual event will be California Dreamin’, and will be held at the Ottawa Marriot Hotel in support of Team Canada’s Paralympic team. What can you look forward to at the hot affair? Live entertainment, a full dessert bar, hors d’oeuvres, and one lucky guest will even win a trip for two to California (trust me, you want in on this!).

So if that hasn’t gotten you excited yet… how about this? We’ll be giving away a pair of tickets to Ottawa’s biggest and best NYE celebration! All you have to do is leave us a comment on our BLOG or FACEBOOK page, telling us what you’re going to be wearing to NYE, with the hashtag #NYEOttawa.

You can also grab your tickets at leading up to the big night!

A dapper NYE


Is it just me, or did December fly by?! By the time you’re reading this post it’ll be a few days before Christmas. While I won’t be seeing my immediate family this holiday season, as they live in Dubai (nuts, I know) I’ll be travelling back on the eve to the #6ix see family as well Kath’s folks. Bring on double Christmas dinners!

And then before you know it,’s gone. The laughter, the cheer, the never ending amounts of food (here’s to hoping grandma hooks it up), and the “do nothing and chill” attitude of the holidays. Once boxing day hits, it’s time to cash in on electronics and most importantly, shop for that all important New Year’s Eve outfit.

mens-express-shirt-tie-combomens-express-stretch-suitThough we aren’t sure yet where we’ll be ringing in the festivities, I’m already thinking this Express stretch mens suit will fit the bill. Tapered and made for today’s modern man, this sleek suit is ready to wear off the rack. Getting around to a tailor at this time of the year could be tricky, so this is key.

What I love most about this suit though, is that it moves with you. Some suits seem to fight you back when you minimally overstrike your step, but not this guy. It’s stretch fabric will keep you groovin’ all night long, as you tear up the dance floor. Throw in the bonus wrinkle resistant tech, and you’ve got one slick combo to keep you looking your best all night.

What is likely one of our last posts for the year, we want to say thank you for visiting our little closet space on the World Wide Web. Wishing you a safe and joyful holiday season with your loved ones. Cheers!
