You don’t have to go out on New Year’s. Everyone else is going to be stumbling around the city in sequined jumpsuits, consumed with the eternal quest for the best place to put on their 2015 glasses and grin wildly for the camera, as that big ball makes its inevitable descent in Times Square, so…

Like John Oliver, and many of you out there, I assume, New Year's Eve is basically my worst nightmare. It's an exhausting holiday for which one is expected to buy a new dress, go out to a place packed with other humans, feel weird if they don't have a date -- or have an awkward…

This New Year’s Eve Missed Connection Is Just Pissy

Greasy Food Makes Hangovers Worse & Other Things You’ll Need To Know On New Year’s Day

There's nothing I enjoy more when I'm drunk than stopping by McDonald's on the way home — the only time I go to Mickey D's, by the way — and getting myself some chicken nuggets. Something about the greasiness and chickenness and saltiness just hits the drunken spot! But it turns out I'm doing drunk-snack…

Throughout the years, there have been hundreds of variations on the classic New Year's Eve ball drop.

How To Ring In The New Year Like Bridget Jones

New Year's Eve is not for everybody. In fact, some of us find it downright silly. Pointy hats covered in glitter? Drunk people on every corner? Dodging a kiss from your college roommate's cousin's best friend at midnight? No thanks! It's okay if you ring in 2014 from the comfort of your own couch —

I Cannot Handle How Much An Applebee’s New Year’s Eve Cost

An ultra-planned New Year’s Eve is rarely a perfectly smooth experience,* to say the least, what with wayward dates, freezing temps, and wildly crowded bars. But one restaurant franchise thinks you will be willing to spend an exorbitant amount of attending its NYE party because obviously, it is probably your best–if not only–bet. Ladies and gentlemen, I…

Anne Lamott Is Not Starting A Diet On January 1st — Would You Like To Join Her?

"I do not currently have a scale, because as I've said before, getting on a scale is like asking Dick Cheney to give you a sense of your own self-worth... I can still get my jeans on, for one reason: I wear forgiving pants. The world is too hard as it is, without letting your…

Frisky Eats: 9 Champagne Sweets For New Year’s Eve

Just like you shouldn't limit your New Year's Eve sequin intake to your dress (get yourself a really fabulous pair of sequined shoes too!), I'm also of the mind that you shouldn't limit your NYE champagne intake to simply drinking it. Have your fizzy and eat it too with these awesome champagne desserts. Rose champagne macarons, strawberry champagne…

Mariah Carey Has Technical Issues, Makes Up A Song On The Spot

When Mariah Carey had technical issues at her New Year's Eve concert in Australia, she dealt by making up her own song on the spot. Her improvised number wasn't half-bad. She sang about her dress and her shoes and the faulty sound system and how she needs an alcoholic beverage right away. I think she…

Awkward NYE Kisses: Kathy Griffin Smooches Anderson Cooper’s Crotch & Jenny McCarthy Maybe Makes Out With A Guy With A Herpes Sore

First of all, Happy New Year, you guys! Did you kiss anyone special when the clock hit midnight? Sadly, I was smoochless, but even that's preferable to the kissing Kathy Griffin and Jenny McCarthy engaged in on New Year's Eve. Griffin was, as usual, hosting CNN's New Year's coverage with Anderson Cooper and thought the…

Gather Round For Ye Olde Drinking Songs!

Does "99 Bottles Of Beer On The Wall" even count as a drinking song? Because if so, a 4th grade field trip is the last time I ever got jolly enough to sing the praises of alcohol. I think we can all agree that drinking songs are olde-timey and therefore rad and New Year's Eve…
