PUBCLUB.COM NEW YEAR’S EVE PREVIEW TWITTER CHAT
PubClub.com is ending 2016 with a bang by launching a Twitter chat on bars & nightlife. There are hundreds of these Twitter chats – come people refer to them as “meet-ups,” on various subject matters, but none on nightlife. Well there is now! The first chat will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 27, at 2 p.m. If you’re not familiar with Twitter chats, it’s a connection of people from around the world on a single subject matter through Twitter. This chat will have fellow bloggers from all over the globe and I’m inviting tourism boards, industry professionals and of course YOU! At the designated time, simply go to Twitter and type this hashtag into the search box: #thenightlifechat. I’ll ask five questions and this week’s topic is New Year’s Eve. The chat will then move into a weekly time slot of Thursdays at 5 p.m. Come on in and join the chat!

LAS VEGAS FOR NYE
Since L.A., has no public celebration, the biggest party place within easy reach for NYE is Las Vegas. Sin City actually has two celebrations, downtown at the Freemont Street Experience” where they have bands on stages, bars out on the street and show “fireworks” on the canopy. And then there’s the huge block party on The Strip. PubClub has several links to articles on NYE in Vegas, and here they are in case you are considering going, and are wondering if you should be at Fremont Street or The Strip:
