The New Year is just around the corner, and you don’t wanna get stuck at home, wearing a onesie, crying into the bottom of a popcorn bowl watching an ABC family special. Pull yourself together, because we’ve taken the guess work out of one of the biggest social situations of the year. Dance the night away in costume, or perhaps throw on your moccs on and head to the desert. You’ve got options, and they don’t include your couch and Mario Lopez live from Las Vega. You’re going to start this year off right, with a drink in your hand, a smile on your mouth, and a song in your heart! Here’s to you, the new year!
