I doubt I’m alone in thinking that paying an expensive cover for an open bar staffed by cater waiters in a hotel conference room-turned-nightclub is pretty overrated. In fact, I’m willing to bet most readers’ New Year’s Eve plans involve at least two of the following: mini bottles of champagne in someone’s purse, heading to a neighborhood bar before they start charging cover, ill-advised whiskey in a flask, or one potential house party.
But if you’re still looking to fill in the gaps, consider this one: beloved music venue Annie’s Social Club is closing it’s doors after tonight 12/31/09, so to celebrate their 4-year run of underground shows they’re inviting everyone to send off Annie’s along with the rest of 2009. Drink specials, a midnight champagne toast and a DJ are standard fare for New Year’s, but FREE cover can be scarce on the 31st. (Plus, come on…it’s Annie’s!) The details:
