The New Years Eve Party Guide

Published On December 28, 2011 | By Kymbo Slice | Music

You might still be digesting from yesterday’s holiday meal, traveling back to the PGH, heading back to work or enjoying the tail end of your holiday break – either way – now that Christmas is over with, we’ve got New Years Eve on the brain. We’re here with another holiday party guide to help you decide what in the world to do in the 412 to send 2011 out with a bang. Maybe there are more house parties this year, because we’re rather surprised there aren’t more options. Don’t let that stop you from finding something to tickle your fancy. Below is a list of everything we could find, as well as some recommendations of our own. Planning ahead never hurt anyone!

First, we’ll hit you with a few of our favorite haps for celebrating NYE to the fullest. Everyone has different taste, but we’d like to think we know a thing or two about how to woop it up.

Peaceburgh at the First United Methodist Church in Friendship

Most people want some booze on New Years to celebrate but some of us are high on life. The Peaceburgh Community is hosting a one of a kind New Years Celebration where they asked, “What would the Mayans do on NYE for 2012?” It’s not about the end of the world folks, it’s about a brand new beginning, total transformation. In fact the Mayan prescription for 2012 is to live in joy and that’s exactly what the Peaceburghers are doing at the First United Methodist Church in Friendship. There may not be booze but there will be a night filled with DJs spinning every thing from classic soul to reggae, fire dancers, yoga, drum circles, gonging, live art, massage, reiki, tarot readings, and even a little hip hop from our own Kellee Maize. The party goes from 8pm to 4am, so you can always swing by after your other shindigs. They are requesting donations from $10 + at the door. Go enjoy a new paradigm of partying with this inspirational community.
