I received an offer to purchase tickets to some Super Bowl XLVIII parties recently and almost gagged at the sticker shock.
ESPN's NEXT Party
Want to party with ESPN celebs and professional athletes along with the women and men who love to jocksniff them?
Then the ESPN The Magazine's NEXT Party on Friday, January 31st might be for you.
Here's the invitation:
Join top athletes and celebrities for the VIP-only launch of ESPN The Magazine's NEXT issue, showcasing an elite group of emerging athletes to watch in 2014. If you prefer mingling with some of the most fashionable models and stars, check out the hottest party of the weekend, hosted by Maxim magazine. Featuring headline performances and DJs at both events, it all adds up to an unforgettable weekend!
Tickets to this bash at Basketball City on the Lower East Side are $1,100 per person and include "host bar, hors d'oeuvres, live music and a headliner performance".
The Maxim Magazine Party
What would a sporting event be with a Maxim Magazine party? On February 1st, partygoers can mix and mingle with some of the hottest d-bags in the city. Okay, that's a little harsh but....it's true.
To hang with a Maxim girl it will cost you a bit more than an ESPN celeb. Tickets to the Central Park party are $1,200 per person and include "host bar, hors d'oeuvres, live music and a headliner performance".
Both of those descriptions are pretty generic-sounding, aren't they?
Understandably prices are higher in the NYC area for everything. I get that. Still, would you pay that much for a Super Bowl party? Have you?
