For the nightlife crowd, New Year’s Eve is Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and the Winter Solstice all rolled into one. Sure there are some fun holiday events, but us night-loving people know that December 31st is the biggest party of the year.
But experienced New Year’s Eve-ists also know that some proper pre-planning is fundamentally important in making the night go smoothly. Just think of that one New Years where you decided to wing it and spent the entire evening madly hopping from one spot to the next in the search of the “perfect” party, only to actually spend the countdown waiting for a cab. Or standing in line outside the aforementioned party. Let alone the fact that New Year’s Eve is a night that event promoters gleefully charge ridiculous amounts- sure it’s a night to let loose a bit, but why not let loose in a somewhat fiscally responsible manner?
So, over the coming weeks, we’ll have a series of posts designed to help you make the most out of your New Year’s Eve in Montreal. Whether you (and 1000 of your new best friends) want to see a huge DJ spinning late into the night or just catch one really one good concert, we’ll have you covered. Even if you want to do something much more relaxed or even, you old humbug, do something that has absolutely nothing to do with New Years in any way, we’ll have some tips for that.
Just say it to yourself out loud: “Montreal for New Year’s Eve”. It just sounds right, doesn’t it?
