Get yer booties on cause it’s gonna be cold out there this weekend! Really, really cold. Don’t let the weather put a damper on your New Year’s Eve festivities though!
NEW YEAR’S EVE SHANANIGANS
Remember that awesome New Years when you totally got to make out with that super hot chick when the ball dropped? No? Me neither. Well, why not give it another shot. The worst thing that could happen is that you start off 2011 standing awkwardly by yourself as everybody around you makes out with their significant other. Here are some good places to do just that:
What: BLVD (Electronic Rock)
Get your swerve on to the sounds of this electro-rock group. Probably a younger crowd, looking to get pretty loose. Odds of finding single girl to kiss at midnight: descent.
Where: The Pink Garter
How much: $25
What: Mandatory Air (rock)
You can’t really say you’ve been to Jackson until you’ve seen Mandatory Air (best band name ever, by the way). Get rowdy at the Moose to good old rock n’ roll. Odds of finding single girl to kiss at midnight: slim.
Where: Couloir Restaurant (up the gondi)
How much: $30 bucks for season passholders/locals, $40 for those “other” people
What: The Deadlocks (Grateful Dead cover band)
Can’t get enough Dead? Well, here’s the ticket for you to bring in the new years. Odds of finding single girl to kiss at midnight: probably pretty good.
Where: Mangy Moose
How much: $15 bones
What: Jalan Crossland Band (alt country)
Rock out with some alt country and save a buck or two. Maybe cap off the night with a late night sled mission on the ‘King. Odds of finding single girl to kiss at midnight: descent, although you may also get beat up by a cowboy.
How much: $5 big ones
