Bid goodbye to the most dreadful year of our lives so far and ring in 2021 with some cheer this new year’s eve. No, we’re not in denial about next year’s turn in the relay of all that’s going on, but we’re also not going to let the situation ruin our fun!
2020 has been grim in many ways (oh, so many ways!), dampening spirits across the country. Goodness knows we all need a bout of merriment. Extend the high spirits of the holiday season to welcome a new year with hope this NYE. (How are you celebrating Christmas, btw?)
The best part about this year’s celebrations is they’re not limited to specific cities. You can attend one (or two or three) of the many online virtual parties planned for this New Year’s Eve.
New Year’s Eve International Virtual Global Gala
$15 – $45
A global party! This online event is an international celebration with many countries. Attend the party on Zoom and enter many rooms with something different happening in each. Partake in a trivia in one room or a scavenger hunt in another. You can even cheer on African dancers, get mesmerized in the magician’s chamber, and let Romanian singers serenade you in the European rooms. There’s so much more!
“Us” with Christopher Titus and Rachel Bradley
$20 – $60
Laugh away 2020’s distress with comedy duo Christopher Titus and Rachel Bradley, with some special guests.
