One is to go to a fun destination like New Orleans, Las Vegas or any of these top New Year’s Eve destinations around the world, another is to go to a big promoter party like this one in San Diego and another is to crash (er, attend) a friend’s place who is having a house party.
Or you could go on a pub crawl. They have them all over the world, including this one in Santa Monica, CA. It is so big it has two check-in bars, goes to several other Santa Monica bars with no cover charge and for those still standing afterward or for singles seeking that last chance, there is an after-hours party.
Here are the details on the Santa Monica New Years Eve Pub Crawl 2023.
