Here's another option that was just brought to my attention -- New Year's Eve at the Space. It promises to be a relaxed option for New Year's Eve, featuring a Premium Open Bar from 9pm-3am, a champagne toast, heavy appertizers, all night breakfast, DJ Portarock, and DJ Sonny Cheeba. Tickets are available online until 9pm this evening
or can be purchased at "The Space" if available.
