It’s not too early: New Year’s Eve

My friends think I’m crazy for talking about New Year’s Eve already, but the Washington Post has proved me sane. They’ve compiled a list of NYE events far more extensive than what I would be able to do, while simultaneously proving me right. It’s not too early to be thinking about the way you’re going to be ringing in the New Year; in fact lots of places are taking early bird prices.

Last year we landed tickets for Shear Madness at the Kennedy Center and went to the after-party gala. Classy, not too high-key or too low-key, and a lot cheaper than the $100+ door prices most places are charging. I’d recommend it.

So will you be headed to one of the big bar events this new year? Is there one in particular that you’ve already scrambled to get tickets for?

  1. I’ll be out west and back home during the festivities in Reno, NV. I know I am boring. When people go downtown they used to get up on the railroad crossing poles and make them bounce until cops would pull them down, so at least I could look forward to something like that during the holiday and not all fun is lost by being at home.
