New Year’s 2010 — Where’s the Central District party?

As we approach the close of 2010, plan a safe and happy New Years celebration close to home. Here are a few highlights of the happenings around the CD this year, including a few of our sponsors. Have something to add to the neighborhood 2010/2011 party? Let us know in comments.

All Purpose Pizza is open their regular hours, 4:00-9:00 pm New Year Eve and New Years Day for dine in or take out.  Stop in for some pizza before you head out to later events.

Twilight Exit is going to have their annual New Years Karaoke Night with champagne toasts at midnight and amazing sing-alongs and drink specials the entire evening.  (I can say from experience that this is one New Years tradition you should take part in!)

The Bottleneck Lounge will be open on New Years Eve with no cover charge.  They will be featuring $6 champagne cocktails from 4:00 pm to close and glasses of bubbly will be $6 as well all evening.  On New Years Day the Bottleneck will be open at 12:30 pm for a build-it-yourself Bacon Salt Bloody Mary Bar.  Folks can choose from a myriad of fixin’s to make that perfect Bloody Mary.  They’ll also be featuring discounts on their Bacon Pop Pecorino and making BLT sandwiches all day long.  (Sounds like a good hangover cure).  

Central Cinema is throwing a Footloose “Dance Your Ass Off New Years Party”.  The event kicks off at 9:30 pm with a viewing of the classic 80s musical film with subtitles and interactive moments followed by a midnight toast and one solid hour of the best dance music videos!  Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 the day of, but get yours early in case this event sells out!  2009’s “Decade Do Over” New Years event at Central Cinema was a blast!

Thompson’s Point of View at 2308 E Union is going to have Darnell Parker in for a Karaoke Night.  There will be music and dancing until 2:00 am with a champagne toast at midnight.  There’s never a cover at Thompson’s and of course it is adults-only after 9:00 pm. 

Pony, our neighbor on the Capitol Hill border line at 1221 E Madison, is going to have DJ El Toro from KEXP spinning for them at their no-cover New Years dance bash. 

And finally, if you decide to stay in and celebrate at home, your friends at the Washington State Liquor Store at 23rd & E Union will be open until 9:00 pm on New Years Eve, so stop in for supplies before then.

Please keep our streets safe, drink responsibly, and have a safe and happy New Year!
