Welcome to On the Radar: New Year's Eve Edition, where we preview up-and-coming events to mark your calendar for. Well, usually. Today, we're trying something a little different. Maybe including this on my New Years list is a little, well, miserly of me (which is pretty accurate, actually), but maybe, just maybe, you could kinda-sorta stay in this year?
This in no way implies that you shouldnt be shitfaced drunk and making an ass out of yourself, but it does solve two important NYE issues: designated driving (which, on New Years Eve, is the equivalent of being a leper); and the exorbitant cost of getting drunk. Get some cheap bottles of bubbly, a case of beer (or, hell, maybe a keg; itll still cost less than a beer or two at The Independent), invite over your most irresponsible friends, put away anything breakable and have at it. Lets just hope your neighbors are enjoying the outta town New Year's option.
