New Year’s Eve, 1999
Downplaying Y2K at Café Cito

Dear Friends...
You as much as I have surely given considerable thought as to how to spend that one eventful New Year’s Eve in our lives when we cross milleniums. We’re used to New Year’s Eve being an extravagant night: for this one, how much more are we going to party? How much more are we going to eat, drink, dance, how many party hats can we fit on our head, how much harder can we hug and kiss at midnight, compared to all the other New Year’s Eve’s of our lives?

The only interesting idea that came to my mind was to be in an airplane, crossing time zones and actually living several midnight’s in the same night. Alas, I can’t afford that. 

So my mind went to the other end of the spectrum, to where I concluded that the thing most worth doing would be sharing the evening with people I care about. Indeed, it won’t be the party intensity, it won’t be the amount of food, or drink, or craziness, not even its originality… rather it will be the quality of the people I share with that will be the substance of this historical night. 

I thought to close Café Cito and spend the night at home. But after thinking about it, I concluded that Café Cito really is my home and that so many of my customers are special friends. Besides, the rooftop terrace is such a great place for enjoying an evening. So I decided to stay open and offer Café Cito as an option for like-minded people who want a place to just hang out, quietly, informally, surrounded by good talk and good music as we wait to see if the world caves in over computer glitches. 

So, here is my Big Millenium New Year’s non-Extravaganza at Café Cito:

First, money will not be an object, as money should not be…

The bar will be serving cocktails and wine at regular prices…

No feast… rather an offering of snacks, canapes and finger foods throughout the evening that will leave you satisfied, not stuffed and wanting to fall asleep by ten  o’clock. A fixed price per person will be charged to whoever wants to eat, priced somewhere between 150 and 200 pesos, and nothing to those who just want to drop in, say hello, have a few drinks

Bring your own champagne… perhaps you would rather be under the stars on our terrace instead of at home… so bring along the bottle(s) you bought, we’ll provide the glasses free of charge. For those who don’t get around to going to the store, we will be offering a very respectable French Brut champagne called Café de Paris sold for only 250 pesos per bottle.

No party favors… no hats, no streamers, no whistles or bells. Just the stars in the sky and the sounds of the city from our rooftop terrace…

No live band… just a great mix of music that will bring out our best memories from the last few decades…

True to the Caribbean… we will set our clock ten minutes off so that nobody will really know when the Big Moment arrives. That will give us more time to extend sentiments, hugs and kisses… perhaps in a way that doesn’t feel like New Year's Eve protocol. Ironically, in New York the Big Moment will happen one hour later. 

To our "tourist" friends... Is this a private party? I don't think it needs to be. Although many of us will know each other,  if your idea of spending this New Year’s Eve is to be surrounded with substance through simplicity, then we will surely appreciate your company and enjoy meeting you at Café Cito.

Do you need to reserve?  Please let us know in advance if you're planning to spend the evening, but there's no need to reserve if you just want to come in and say hello.  cafecito@popreport.com  Tel. 586-7923

Wishing you the best for the holidays and for as much of the new millenium as you can manage, 
 
 

Yours truly,

Tim Hall
