happy NY

A belly full of Xmas cookies goes well with gifted warm pajamas and Home Alone 2.

Good, enjoy that peace and comfort while it lasts because in less than a week you’ll be raving, dancing, partying and burning all that Holiday fat!

Bushwick, per usual, will not disappoint and will deliver its residents to 2015 with glam, fun, rock, and in some cases with really good food. Check out our list of the best local NYE parties, and begin the new year in the best possible way! In Bushwick!

BangOn! NYC Presents NYE 2015: Time & Space ($75, $175)

Location to be announced

We love us some BangOn! rave/art fusion parties, and (minor Halloween Party hiccup aside) they know just how to please a crowd of thousands. On the 31st a few of their surprise attractions include: holograms, a UFO Flying Saucer launch and midnite, 3-d video mapping, Balloon Enchantresses, Spaceships, tons of DJs, and my personal favorite: “Expanded and enhanced cuddle puddle chill zones.” Everyone’s getting laid. Get your tix fast!

If going to shows is what gets you off, there’s no use trying to do something different for NYE.

New Year’s Eve @ Schwick Market ($50)

6 Charles Pl, Brooklyn

How about New Year’s Eve enjoyed at Shwick Market? Don’t worry, they won’t make you shop whole night. Actually, they will make you dance (think awesome Chris Video), take silly photos at a photo booth, and they will make you drink for free (open bar ’till midnight) and taste some yummy hors d’oeuvres. Sound dandy to us!
