Restaurateur Jesse Morreale has always gone all-out dolling up his eateries for the holidays, but since he nabbed the vintage First Avenue Hotel and opened El Diablo there, the corner of First and Broadway has become a real star, with more than 24,000 twinkling bulbs inside and out.
!Feliz Navidad!, dude. Tonight at 5:30 p.m., the illumination switches on for the season with a holiday party that includes mulled wine and appetizers at Sketch and tequila pairings at El Diablo for the adults, and an honest-to-God reindeer petting zoo outside for the kids.
Got a house full of antsy relatives and children? LIGHT BULB! Here's a great way to get them out of the house and take the celebration to the streets on Thanksgiving Eve. It's guaranteed to give you a glow that will carry over to tomorrow's turkey dinner.
