Ready for New Year's? If you still haven't made plans for the night, never fear, our Going out Guide has last minute plans that include everything from vaudeville to totally 80's. Or ask the Going Out Gurus themselves in a live chat at 1p.m. today. I bet you haven't made your new year's resolution either. While you're thinking about it, check out our round up of the new year's resolutions our public figures kept and didn't keep in 2010. We hope you're better at keeping them than they are.
