It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

That special night when all of the boys and girls in every major city in the world go out into the night and celebrate the start of a new year by drinking enough to forget everything that happened in the last year, which is actually a great idea since UVSF did not exist in the year 2014. But we’ll be back in full effect in 2015, which is yet another reason to celebrate by making some bad decisions on NYE.

Whether you’re drinking to excess or just going home with the most attractive stranger you can find, Angelenos, here are your top ten ways to ring in 2015 proper.


New Year’s Eve at Sound 2015 w/ Danny Tengalia @ Sound, Los Angeles

Disco made me do it…

The legend himself, a man who needs no introduction, is coming to Sound LA this NYE, and he is bringing with him decades of DJ expertise in order to create an unforgettable performance of a lifetime.

Since the release of his first album, Hard & Soul, in 1995, and his subsequent beat-mixed dance compilations, such as Mix This Pussy, Can Your Pussy Do The Dog?, Gag Me with a Tune, and Color Me Danny, the DJ-remixer-producer Danny Teneglia has traveled the world performing for live audiences large and small and made up of fans from every generation.

NYE at the Sportsman’s Lounge @ Studio City

This next one goes out to all of the Silverfoxes out there. Which is ironic since none of them know how to use a computer.

If you are over 40 and can’t imagine going to the mega events for the 20 and 30 year old crowds in West Hollywood and Hollywood, and don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars of inflated costs at one of the high priced hotels or restaurants, then this is definitely the event for you.

This years NYE event will take place in the hotel’s largest event area, the Empire/Regency Room, with almost 10,000 square feet of space including 2000 square feet of dance floor and a capacity crowd of over 600.
