New Year's 2011 Without a Budget

New Year's 2011 Without a Budget

A uniform understanding for most people is how much money they have, what they can spend without letting their credit score hit the floor, and a healthy fear of not making ends meet. When planning for your New Years adventure, this is especially important, given the fact that the night is bound to be expensive and the fact that you have that insatiable urge to impress someone (yourself amongst them). When you add the two together a slight air of indigestion and heartburn comes bubbling up and you say to your self “eh, there’s always next year...” This is the sad reality of most of our lives.

This however is the internet, and as most people do on the internet, we have the chance to pretend that we have and can get anything we want whenever we want it. Imagine that the gross national product of America is in your savings account and you are just oh so bored of your not so tiny island in the shape of Australia off the coast of Dubai. This is the Trillionaire’s New Years experience. No budget. No problem. Let’s indulge.

When considering New Year’s destinations with an unlimited amount of money, it is important to consider everything you would typically need to include on a standard New Year’s Eve excursion: travel to your destination, car rental, hotel accommodations, dinner, and a place to party.  For our intentions we have chosen to stay in Prague in The Czech Republic for our New Years celebration. Why Prague?  Some say that this Eastern European city has one of the richest histories in the world, and that nobody does fireworks better than the Czech Republic. With the epic scenery and remote location, a New Year’s in Prague is sure to be worthy of such extravagance.
  
First Class Travel: First off we have to get to Eastern Europe. This means we need a plane. There is no better way to travel the globe than in a brand new Gulfstream g650 private jet. With a price tag of around 60 million dollars, this is the perfect aircraft to get us to Prague in style and comfort.  The plane goes an estimated 800 MPH, so with a total distance between New York and Prague being 4801 miles, the trip will take us only about 6 hours of flight time.
 
Renting a vehicle: We’ve chosen the Bugatti Veyron, a 268 mph super car with a price tag of over two million dollars, to be our ride during our excursion. For those of lesser means, renting a Veyron is an option…for $17,500 a week.
Gas is not really something to worry about, but with the efficiency of 6 miles per gallon, it might be a good idea to plan that into the budget as well – if you had one.

Lodging: It is disappointing to learn that a stay at Prague Castle, the main focal point of the city as well as the largest castle in the world, is impossible to book without an invitation from the President of the country himself. Since we have yet to garner that invitation, we’ve found the next best thing: the ultra luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Prague. The presidential suite starts at around $1,500 a night, for a 1 bedroom suite that includes picturesque views of the Castle, moments walk away from the best cafés, restaurants and bars in the city, as well as every amenity under the sun.
 
Dinner and Drinks: For dinner, we’ve decided to take in a bit of the local flavor. For a measly $400 per plate, Mlýnec restaurant offers a 7 course meal and extended wine list. For the toast we’ve imported a bottle of Dom Perignon “White Gold” originally bottled in1990, which roughly costs about 125 times more than our meal at $50,000 (if you can find one). Dinner lasts around 3 hours, which if timed correctly can end right as the fire works begin. The restaurant has one of the most famous vantage points in the city. Located at the city center, perimeter fireworks surround the city and light up the night with one of the most elaborate and intensive displays in the world.

Now comes time for the party: Prague is known for having one of the most indulgent and exclusive nightclub scenes in Eastern Europe. From the Roxy to the M1, as well as a host of bars and restaurants at every corner of the city, the nightlife in Prague is not to be missed offering a mixture of both old world style and new world ambience and insanity. We’ve chosen to buy rounds for the locals in every night spot in the old city in order to give back, and basically overspend as much as possible. Happy New Year!
