Borough President Marty Markowitz was feeling festive on New Year’s Eve.

Gliding through the crowd gathered for the big countdown at Grand Army Plaza, with staff photographer Kathryn Kirk in tow, and a bottle of champagne and party cups at the ready, the now three-term borough president merrily doled out a bit of bubbly to cold and wet 2010 revelers.

But it was only after the borough prez took to the stage, however - boasting that the evening’s free champagne was the same kind President Barack Obama sipped when he won the White House last year - that “Party Marty” remembered to warn all those imbibing that they must be over 21 to enjoy a toast.

Oops! Oh, well ... here’s to 2010.
