New Year's Eve 2003. We spent it at the National Constitution Center at the Glitter City Gala, along with about 1700 other people. Black tie optional made for many interesting interpretations of what "optional" meant – most were creative and fun. With five open bars, no one seemed to care that much anyway. Both floors of the Constitution Center were decked out and jam-packed, largely with a 23 to 35 year oldish crowd.
