So if Time magazine is correct and the "aughts" have been the "decade from hell," that sounds to me like a good excuse to party even harder to say hello to a new decade, right? If you're looking for a good party, you couldn't find a better spot than Athens, GA.

Here are a few ideas:
  • The Melting Point, at the Foundry Park Inn & Spa: Celebrate the sounds and flavors of New Orleans and ring in the New Year Big Easy Style featuring Bonerama with Lil Brian & The Zydeco Travelers. Get all the details here.

  • The Rialto Room, at the Hotel Indigo: NYE celebration and dance party at the Rialto Room, featuring motown music from The Common People. The New Year's Eve Blowout Package is just $189 per couple, including overnight at the Hotel Indigo. Party-only tix are just $50 per person. More info here.

  • 40 Watt Club: Atlas Sound, Supercluster, and the Selmanaires
