2010-12-31 Special Edition LOVIEE (New Year’s Eve)

While I know it’s way late, I’m still posting it as promised. So far this is much sparser than last year’s. I may be adding to this list as the holiday approaches. This time around, I’m focusing more on NYE events that would otherwise receive minimal to no publicity, so otherwise well-publicized events may be omitted.

Unless otherwise noted, events end at 2am. Events known to be 21 and over only are thusly noted.
