New Years Eve is only a few short weeks away, but because of the CRAZINESS, it's smart to start planning now! Where are you ringing in the new year? Home? Party, Restaurant? Bar?

I know for many of you it's probably a dream to watch the ball drop right in Times Square, but there are sooooo many people! You have to camp out all day in that spot and generally (a lot of times) people use the bathroom right where they're standing... And Times Square is not the only place to have a crazy and awesome New Years!!!
