ROM New Year's Eve party sells out in minutes

The most popular place to party in Toronto on New Years Eve is probably at the ROM. For the first time ever, the Royal Ontario Museum will throw a NYE bash, but good luck getting in the doors.

Early bird tickets, $65, sold out on November 22, but a new batch of tickets went on sale today. According to a ROM spokesperson, they sold out in 12 minutes. Now, all 1,800 tickets have been snatched up and there won't be any available at the door.

The ROM's website crashed this morning amidst the mad dash for tickets. Hopeful Torontonians are already looking for tickets on Bunz and on the ROM's NYE Facebook event page. Some are extremely disappointed and took to Twitter to vent and share their frustation.
