New Year’s Eve celebrations from parties to live music to more meditative choices are happening throughout our lovely city, many of which are detailed in Kelly’s fantastic rundown of What to Do in Boulder on New Year’s so check that out for sure.
Boulder favorites, the Yonder Mountain String Band, will be playing both Friday and New Year’s Eve at the Boulder Theatre. These folks always put on a stellar show and are not to be missed. The Fox Theatre is also having a New Year’s Eve throwdown with Mimosa & Vibe Street providing the musical entertainment.
St. Julien has two parties (with two bands) happening on New Year’s, and The Boulderado has five!! Bring a favorite human or go solo and party in the New Year. Conor O’Neill’s actually has two celebrations as well: one at 5pm (which is midnight in Ireland, natch), and one for our own Boulder midnight, with local favorite band, The Alcapones.
Shine is having a dance party (free cover!) in the theme of a magical forest. Come dressed as your favorite magic user, and dance the magic into the new year with potions and music. Press Play also has a no-cover dance party, called Good Riddance 2016, which is admittedly a sentiment many of us share, am I right?
Whatever you choose to do, remember that all RTD buses are free starting at 7pm in and around Boulder, so stay safe out there.
Happy New Year, everyone!
