Last Night: Passport to the World at Westin St Francis NYE 2010

No passports were required at this sold out New Year's Eve event, which whisked party-goers away to 10 areas featuring six different country themes. The event, held at the mirrored and gilded halls of the Westin St Francis was one of San Francisco's largest and most attended this New Year's Eve, with almost 4,000 attendees occupying over 30,000 square feet.

We were greeted by flamenco girls on stilts, given fortune cookies by a huge Golden Buddha, and danced into next year with the musical stylings of 15 DJs and the convenience of a fully stocked open bar all night long.

 
Spectacles of the night included a break dance show, a live drum/DJ performance by Heroes, three fashion shows, and a live art installation by Pacific Art Collective, where various artists collaboratively painted on a huge wall, blending all their diverse styles into one massive artwork.

 

For those that could afford the $165 to $255 ($500 upwards if you wanted a table) tickets, this party was sophistication meets the streets, lapped up and spat out, leaving us all begging for more.
