Old Fogies In Need of Help (New Year’s Edition)

The wife and I are a couple of thirty-somethings who must entertain my sister-in-law, a young twenty-something, on New Year’s Eve. We’re a decade apart in age but we’re all in agreement that we must have some sort of “fun” at the year’s end. Now we have the daunting task of figuring out how and where that “fun” will happen.

What do you recommend we do? What’s your favorite spot to ring in the New Year? No answer is too mundane or too outrageous! We’d like to keep it in Orange County and we’re not opposed to unconventional experiences. To make this more challenging, the following is a list of five words or phrases that cannot be included in your comments:

Good Time Bar
Dick Clark

Please be vocal and help the oldsters have a good time! If you don’t do it for us, then do it for the hip young scenester we’ll have in tow. I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and may your Kwanza be awesome too.

    You really want to keep it in the OC? I was going to suggest the Autolux show at Little Radio Warehouse in LA (good music, cool-looking place, and it’s only $20).

    As for the OC, one thing I wouldn’t recommend is the dinner at Orange Hill Restaurant. It was dowdy, boring, and not worth the $$.

    We’re kind of in the same predicament (finding something to do I mean). Sounds like there will be a cool multi-band concert at the fairgrounds, and you get to countdown the Orange drop.

    Looks like the OCNYE at the fairgrounds is about 85 bucks a pop if you purchase tickets in advance. Info is located at http://www.ocnye.com/

    Looks like Blondie, Violent Femmes, Tommy Tutone and Brett Michales are schedules to appear. It could be entertaining actually. The VIP tickets are 200.00 which seems a bit too high for the venue.

    We’ll keep this in mind, thanks for the tip Dave.

    If I could actually go anywhere past 8pm on New Year’s Eve (I can’t), it would probably be the concert at the fairgrounds.

    If I get brave, I may go once again to First Night Fullerton. I have to say that it is a “family friendly” atmosphere, although they have lots of entertainment, food, as well as activities for the little ones.

    And best of all? It’s freeeeeeeee!

    Yay! Freeeeee! You know I loves me some posts by Gina about free stuff! =)

    That’s funny we just considering First Night Fullerton! Is it fun? It sounded kind of hokey, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
