Help out one of the boardwalk restaurants hit by Hurricane Sandy — and have a blast of your own! For a blow-out extravagant night with a large group of friends, book a reservation at Tatiana's Russian nightclub on the Brighton Beach Boardwalk. It's one of a handful of Russian nightclubs that have incredible floor shows every weekend. So of course, for New Year's Eve, they'll do it up even more; you can expect a completely over-the-top show, with live music and dancing.
Advance reservations a must. After all, that vodka so is a pre-booked taxi or designated driver to get you home safely on New Year's Eve. Uh, New Year's Day that is.

- Where: 484 Union Ave. located under the shadow of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
