The New Year's Eve Gala at the Renaissance was the hottest ticket in town. After a tumultuous 2008, partygoers were ready to bring in 2009 with a bang - and they packed the Downtown hotel by the thousands to experience all the entertainment the evening had to offer, including five rooms of sound, open bar and complimentary hors d'oeuvres. George Acosta was the night's highlight, and the intimate space where he performed gave fans the rare opportunity to get up close and personal with the superstar DJ.
