HAPPY NEW YEAR!
There is definitely no shortage of things to do in San
Francisco for the new year. There is something of every flavor for everyone.
But, since we know most of our guests are traveling on a budget, here are some
places hosting events on the cheap side...
Mighty (119 Utah St.) -2nd annual 1984 NYE! two floors bumming non-stop 80s music all night, champagne toast at midnight. FREE!

night long! 9pm-3am, $10.
Casanova Lounge (527 Valencia) –DJs, champagne cocktail at
midnight and a special appearance by the Solid Gold Dancers. $10.
Don't feel like being crammed in a club for the count down? Then bundle up and go watch the annual midnight fireworks! Head south of the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero for the best view. The fireworks go off right at midnight, so make sure to get there by 11:30 at the latest to get a good spot. Make sure to dress warm. A flask is never a bad idea;)
Well, those are some ideas to hopefully get you started.
Have fun, be safe, and we’ll see you all next year! hopefully…
