You survived Christmas AND the Mayan apocalypse.
Pack away the canned foods and escape route map and celebrate the coming millennium (or just 2013) at one of the following fab New Year’s Eve parties.
Bonus: no need to coordinate your evening wear with your gas mask.
Swankin’ It at a Speakeasy
Kick up your heels over your continued existence at Midnight in Venice: the NYE bash at the Del Monte Speakeasy in Venice. Put on your dancing shoes and eat (yum food), drink (crafted cocktails and punch), and make merry (with the rootin’ tootin’ Dustbowl Revival) at this original speakeasy by the sea.
It’s great to be alive.
MIDNIGHT IN VENICE — Mon, Dec 31; 8pm – 2am. $30 – $40; 21+ — Del Monte Speakeasy at the Townhouse, 52 Windward Ave, Venice, 90291.

New Year’s Eve with the Green Fairy
What better place to celebrate the passage of time than at the gorgeous Edison: a steampunk fever dream and cocktail palace? Highlights of their New Year’s Eve 2013 Cabaret Ball: performances by Eccentriques, surprises from the Green Fairy for those who dress for the occasion (so swank it up, sheiks and shebas) a midnight toast, and assorted festivities.
THE EDISON NYE CABARET BALL — Mon, Dec 31 @ 8pm. $100/21+ — The Edison,108 W 2nd St, 90012. For tix, table reservations, etc. go to: https://www.edisondowntown.com/tickets/index.php?eventid=1214
Walk Like an Egyptian
An Egyptian hieroglyphic light show may seem an uncomfortable reminder of that squeaky close brush with Yucatan doomsday. Luckily, the five bars, red carpet atmosphere of the Egyptian Theater, suggested Cleopatra-and-Pharoah attire, and go go dancers will help offset any lingering, narrowly averted trauma.
Go Go dancers help offset most things.
3RD ANNUAL CLEOPATRA BALL — Mon, Dec 31; 9pm – 2am. $95-$1975; 21+ — Egyptian Theater, 6712 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood 90028. http://cleopatrasball.com/
