I am going (and being the driver) for 4 separate house parties...The plus is I get to see everyone the minus is until i reach my final destination...i am the driver so no toasting the new year until late in the evening...
I will be at home, in my PJs, drinking wine and watching movies with my only other single friend. I decided to stay in this year and keep a low profile... seems like the best way to start off my new (and hopefully better) year!
Everyone please be safe and enjoy a great start to the New Year!

I'll be haeading of to the Auditorium Theatre in a little bit to catch Umphreys. I have friends going to the Justice show tonight(I strongly considered giving up my UM tickets to go to Justice but just couldn't do it). Hopefully you all have a fun and safe new year.

I am driving up to Austin to see a buddy who is home from grad school and hit up 6th street.
y'all should come to flamingo cantina!! there's going to be some great reggae bands playing, some yummy jerk chicken, and a complimentary champagne toast at midnight!! doors open at 9pm
Information: Complimentary Champagne Toast at midnight! $20 at door, no advance tickets. 21+ only Join Flamingo and family for our annual NYE funky reggae party! Warm up with a plate of Winston's exquisite jerk chicken and sit back while we transport you to the chillest New Year's eve bash in town.We've got the founding fathers of Austin roots reggae, the Mau Mau Chaplains helping to ring in '09 with their authentic island sounds. Some of these guys have been gracing stages around town since the mid 70s...put it this way, they know what they're doing and you're gonna love it. After the red, green and gold bells usher out 2008, one of the gutsiest bands in town takes the stage, Grimy Styles. Taking the tradition of King Tubby and Lee 'Scratch' Perry and blowing it out of the water with their own layers of heavily eastern European inspired tracks, metal guitar riffs and straight up roots rhythms Grimy Styles defies genre-labeling. What we can label is this night at Flamingo Cantina as "One of the Best Austin Traditions Around.
