Things to do for December 26, 2013
pagne, Dancing and a New Year’s Recovery Plan
The weekend is nigh.
Your Final Dance Number
Should you be in the market for an over-the-top, dance-all-night kind of party with DJs named Deadmau5 and Kaskade... that can be arranged. Just get to the convention center on Friday (and/or Saturday) for flashing lights, gyrating crowds and, probably, energy drinks mixed with champagne. Okay, definitely.
Thai Food, Thai Beer, Thai Rock
If you’re going to survive New Year’s Eve, you’ll need some food in your system. Pakpao has some food. Good food. Like blue crabs and noodles. So eat that and then stick around for a live Thai rock band. They’ll be playing all your favorite Thai rock songs.
Celebrating New Year’s. Several Times.
Tuesday at midnight. It’s going to be great. But if you’re feeling impatient, there’s this around-the-world party at Windmill Lounge. Each hour you’ll toast to a different city as their respective clocks strike midnight. Hey, it’s only fair...
The Granada’s provided you with many good times this year. And for their encore: a New Year’s Eve concert with Jonathan Tyler & the Northern Lights, plus the Quaker City Night Hawks. They’ll be the ones making all that noise.
The Year Begins with Brunch
It’s best to start the new year off right, with a resolution beginning immediately on January 1. Preferably one that’s easy to keep. Like brunching on steak and eggs at Fearing’s to absolve all your partied-too-hard-the-night-before sins. That sounds doable.
