The New Year’s Eve dance is pretty similar year after year. In the weeks leading up to the night, everyone is scrambling to find the best party, the best event, the best midnight kiss (author’s note: I’m totally available for midnight kisses, ladies).
With so many options it can be hard to choose, but your pals at SFR have narrowed it down to a few simple yet awesome choices for you to ring this bitch in right…read on, won’t you?
Perhaps you’d like to build the romantic and sensual tension by dancing the night away at El Mesón’s Argentine Tango Milonga (213 Washington Ave., 7:30 pm, $5). It’s the closest you can get to sleeping with someone while clothed. Or maybe you’re more of a math-rock nerd and can’t get enough of As In We and their musical versions of fractals at Second Street Brewery Railyard, (1814 2nd St, 10:30 pm, no cover). Bishop’s Lodge is offering up some smooth jazz with Asher Barreras and Pat Malone (1297 Bishop’s Lodge Road, 7 pm, $95 per couple) for you moneybags types who love a good wine and fireside romance.
The Lensic offers ultra-famous pianist Claire Huangci alongside the SFCA Orchestra for the highbrow ringers-in of the new year (211 W San Francisco St., 5 pm, $25-$95) and Taos Ski Valley is blasting off fireworks like you wouldn’t believe (116 Sutton Place, Taos, 6 pm, free).
And, though Jan. 1 is a time for personal reflection and resolutions and all that crap everybody is straight gonna forget about come March, New Year’s Eve is the night for everyone to get trashed, make questionable decisions and spend our time with those who are most important—people whom we wish to bed.
Good luck in 2014, nerds!
