The line between reality and fantasy will be blurred for some of the best in New Year's Eve revelry at Mystique 2012: Le Cirque. On a night when anything can happen, this event will be teeming with intrigue and splendor. Delight in dexterous acts by Circus Juventas and Cirque DuVolo as they transform Epic Event Center into a bold, artistic space for the evening with their daring performances. Embrace the avant-garde and admire the extravagant runway show with Ignite Models draped in sumptuous looks styled by ultra-hot Secrets Fashion Agency. Fashionista and style writer Joan Erakit will act as host. The night isn't all about the performers and the models, though. Get down in style to DJs Stretch, Timmay, Tink, Big Mama J, Matt Esse, and others as they spin the soundtrack to your unforgettable night. VIPs get early entry and hors d'oeuvres from Barrio and Lotus, but everyone at the party wins with late-night sandwiches from Erbert and Gerbert's. Produced by the same pioneers behind last New Year's A Masked Affair, their newest endeavor promises to be the most illustrious event in Minneapolis celebrating the dawn of 2012. Tickets available at www.nyempls.com. 21+.
