NYE Rundown

Gentle Reader, are you still trying to cobble together some last minute New Years Eve plans? Don't worry, here is a brief and non-comprehensive list of things happening tonight straight from the Damn Arbor Hive Mind.

The Puck Drops Here--Main St.--Free
A giant NYE street party complete with a Puck Drop. I think that means the Henrik Zetterberg and Dion Phaneuf will actually be doing the face-off for tomorrow's game early. THere will also be live music from hometown hero, Michelle Chamuel, and DJs spinning tunes to keep you rocking till the wee hours.

Tacopocalypse: NYE Bang!--Bind Pig--$7
The Bang! but with bubbly and a taco eating contest. I don't see how that could end badly. But if you want to dance your ass off, this might be the party for you.

Procedes from this awesome party go to benefit 826 Michigan. Tonight local rockers Chit Chat and Frontier Ruckus are playing.

A quite bar that isn't doing anything special where you can just post up with your friends and have a semi quite evening and maybe eat a hamburger--somewhere--free
I have been cautioned not to ruin our NYE plans by telling everyone and their mom about how nice a quiet NYE at Oscar Tango can be. So I wont. But if you can decipher my code, and want to stop by and say hi, feel free.

Well there you have it Gentle Reader. There are a ton more options available for your NYE pleasure that I didn't write up including dinners at Vinology and ABC. You can even rent out your own booth at The Last Word, if they are not already sold out. So what are your plans? Are you going to check out the madness that is The Puck Drops Here?


  1. At first we were all "YES LET'S WALK DOWNTOWN AT 8 AND STAY THERE ALL NIGHT!". Then we saw that it would be in the teens and said, "Let's maybe go down about 10." Then we heard something about 10 degrees or less and now we are thinking of schlupping down after 11 :)

    I do know your code and will poke my head in if it doesn't look too insane and if we actually drag ourselves down that far :) Happy New Year's!! We need to set up another viewing party, btw....
