Whady’re New Year’s Plans?

Dave says in the comments:

I’m pretty sure this isnt the best place to ask this but here goes, what are some of the best things to do in LA for New Years? I’m a recent New York transplant so I was wondering other than the bar scene what goes on in LA the night the year starts anew?

So, here’s a better place to ask a good question. What the hell’s going on? What are you all doing for New Year’s? Is there anything cool to do? I think I might pay $45 for an open bar and all you can eat horis doovreys at El Guapo Cantina solely for lack of a better plan.

  1. There are some interesting parties scattered across town, big and small. Sunset will be the regular bar-crawl madness. Downtown will be overrun by Giant and the techno/rock concerts. AnonSalon will be rocking the Park Plaza near downtown with some funky style.

    Depends on what you’re looking for.

  2. >El Guapo is foul. Don’t do it.

    I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree on that, because I happen to like El Guapo quite a bit. The crowd is super square, but the drinks are good and I like the food.

  3. we’re hitting spaceland for the autolux show. should be fun…. i’m not really into a big party thang on new years

  4. I was thinking about going to a place like busby’s (if only because its near my place in santa monica) but do any of the suburbs of Los Angeles have fire works or big ole’ street fairs, or anythiing to that effect. Being that this is my first New Years as an Angelino, and not a New Yorker, I wanted to find something that was, for lack of a better phrase, uniquely LA. Any suggestions?

  5. At least once, everybody should go to a black tie New Years party. For one thing, it’s guaranteed sex. At $75 bucks a person there’s cheaper option to be sure, but the Roosevelt Hotel puts on quite a shin dig.

  6. I’ll be siting in front of the TV while my wife goes to sleep early and my two year old is dreaming about waking up in a few hours. Oh, wait, you wanted something cool to do. I got nothing.

  7. We’re staying off the streets of LA on New Years Eve. A couple of neighbors are coming over to our house and we’re gonna celebrate here. All they gotta worry about is stumbling down the street.

  8. There is always the Rose Parade in Pasadena. Everyone should try staying the night on the street once in their life. Luckily, I’ve already done it once so I can sleep in and catch one of the many rebroadcasts on KCAL or whichever channel airs the parade.

    Just DON’T try driving down Colorado Blvd. on New Year’s Eve unless you plan on washing you car the next day.
