More on New Year's Eve
I wrote a lot about New Year's Eve on the blog yesterday, but I've since had people ask me if the parties I mentioned were the only ones available, or if an event didn't make the column because it was sold out, etc., so I wanted to clear something up: There seem to be tickets left for almost every New Year's Eve party in town.
From the Bollywood 2 Night dance party to Godfather of Go-Go Chuck Brown at the 9:30 club to the black-tie optional New Year's Gala hosted by Washington Wizards Andre Blatche and DeShawn Stevenson and WKYS's Russ Parr, there are spaces remaining. I've gotten some e-mails with an increasingly hysterical tone saying "only a few tickets remaining!" but the fact is, most places have not sold out.
If you'd asked me two weeks ago, I would have encouraged you to get tickets in advance for the Legwarmers at the State Theatre and the open-bar madness at Glover Park's Town Hall, but I doubt I would have guessed those would be among the first New Year's Eve events to get rid of all their tickets, besting Ahmad Jamal at Blues Alley, DC101's Downtown Countdown, Lucky Bar's annual no-holds-barred throwdown or the perennially popular Clarendon Ballroom soiree.
Have you bought your New Year's Eve tickets yet? Why do you think so many parties have been slow to sell out? Let us know in the comments box.
Oh, and let me stick in one last-minute pitch for SoberRide, which will buy you a taxi ride home on New Year's Eve (and this weekend) so you don't have to worry about drinking and driving. Be smart.
