If you’re planning on overdoing it tonight (is that something a person plans for, really?), don’t sweat. I mean, you’ll probably be sweating as you clutch the porcelain throne and yell, “Why, God, why?!”, but that’s the choice you made when you decided to over-imbibe.

Now that we’ve stuck a big ol’ fork in Christmas it’s time to turn our sights on the dawning of 2014. Here, we round up seven of the most-fun-sounding gay ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day in Philadelphia — from a tassel-twirling bash at Tabu to Nightlife Gay’s very first Pub Crawl of 2014. Happy New Year!
NEW YEAR’S EVE

Tabu is going burlesque for its NYE festivities, bringing in “genderfuck royals” Notorious OMG and the Liberty City Kings Drag and Burlesque troupe to bring in 2014 with sparkles, shimmies and, at least in OMG’s case, some of the tightest tuck jobs this side of the Interior Illusions Lounge. The soirée is geared to satisfy all your typical NYE cravings: sit-down dinner at 7 p.m., LiCK performance at 9 p.m. and dancing from midnight till close. 7 p.m.-2 a.m., $17-$75, Tabu Lounge and Sports Bar, 200 S. 12th St.

A few weeks back we tested out a new advertising device that we dubbed Flyer Flow. It was tremendously successful and today we launch it as a new feature here on Foobooz. At the bottom of every page on Foobooz is now a rotating carousel of flyers highlighting special events. Right now they are all focused on New Year’s Eve. Click here to make like the ball at Times Square and drop to the bottom of the page. There you will find flyers for New Year’s Eve events.
If you are a bar, restaurant or venue owner, you can still advertise your New Year’s event. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
New Year’s Eve is less than a month away and if you’re like us, you have no idea what you’re going to do.
Here’s our guide to New Year’s Eve, whether you’re looking for an open bar, a BYOB, or a budget conscious NYE, we’ve got you covered.
We’ll be updating the Guide in the coming weeks as we discover more events worth sharing.
