Party Options, Part Two

Tree WrapMichael Natale

As we prepare to dim the lights at The Local–until the morning of January 2, 2013, news willing–here are a few more ideas for painting the neighborhood red.

In the world of noise, Blonde Redhead plans to a thunderous New Year’s Eve at Irving Plaza. The Punch Brothers have taken over Patti Smith’s regular New Year’s Eve spot at the Bowery Ballroom. They sold out in advance, just like she always did.

If you insist on making a complete night of it, here are the bars licensed to stay open for the duration. At higher cost, party through until dawn at Webster Hall’s New Year’s Eve Ball.

Soothe sore heads at the Poetry Project’s 39th Annual Marathon Reading on New Year’s day. Or celebrate in vintage style, of course, at Merchant’s House Museum, which invites you to pay New Year’s calls just like 1850–after holiday punch and some canapés.

Enjoy–and we’ll see you back here next year.
