When youíre hungover and exhausted the last place you may want to be is trapped in a real-life snow globe with a bunch of other hungover, likely unshowered peopleÖ but, when in Vegas! They donít call January 1 National Hangover Day for nothing. After youíve finally gotten all the confetti out of your hair (and possibly found your missing shoe), it could be time to crash but this is Vegas and our best hangover cure is to keep on drinking.
Snow Globe Dayclub Dome at The Cosmopolitan has a good solution for those not ready to call it quits on New Yearís Day. For $20 for men and $10 for ladies, guests can enjoy a complimentary brunch and champagne open bar in the Marquee main room from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. then dance to the sounds of Carnage (sounds perfect for right after NYE!) and Cash Cash. It wonít cost you any cash cash, ahem, to attend if you purchased tickets to the New Yearís Eve festivities at Marquee or its sister clubs, TAO and LAVO. Thatís right, free NYE after, afterparty.

HE WILL RETURN.
A coulrophobic's worst nightmare is coming back to Vegas for a very special performance this New Year's Eve. Puddles Pity Party will perform three shows at downtown's Commonwealth bar at 11 p.m., 11:45 p.m. and 12:45 p.m. December 31.
New Year's Eve in Las Vegas is a time when thousands upon thousands flock to the Strip for one big, raucous blowout. But, when nearly every spot is offering a special prix fixe dinner or what have you, what is the best way to do it? Here's what I would suggest.
If you've never done NYE on the Strip, you may be wondering, "What's the parking situation?" This is the situation: you can't park anywhere, ever, unless you are cool with getting there ten hours early and leaving the next day. Either that or get your walking shoes on and park somewhere a good mile away.

If you missed The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl before, you have no excuse this time. Youíve been warned. They put on a heck of a show and though itís hard to explain if you havenít experienced it, they just feel like Brooklyn Bowl. They feel like they should be on that stage. Jimmy Fallon should move his show to Vegas so they can be our house band at the same time.
Youíll have your shot to see what we mean over New Yearís Eve at The Roots Legendary New Yearís Eve Ball. Doors open and 8 p.m. and the band takes the stage at 9 p.m. If past shows are any indication, they should be good for a decently long performance.
First, yes, we know. The cheapest way to spend New Year's Eve on the Strip would be milling with the masses for free on Las Vegas Boulevard. But, what's the fun in that? For twenty bucks, you could still spend it outdoors and still ooh, ahh at fireworks come midnight, but be high above it all... ice skating.
The Cosmopolitan is just a few days away from transforming its Boulevard Pool into The Ice Rink and you can ring in the New Year there for $20 if you buy tickets early (i.e., now). At some point, admission will creep up to $30. If you'd still prefer free and were planning to book a room in Vegas, anyway, hotel guests will receive complimentary entry.

This New Year's Eve, thirty bucks is all it takes to jam out to Van Halen, Queen, Duran Duran, Aerosmith, and more on Fremont Street. Or, rather the music of all those groups as rock classics will delivered all night long by tribute bands.

Snoop at TAO. Maroon 5 at Mandalay. Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga
check-to-check cheek-to-cheek at Cosmo. A motionless High Roller. Slowly but surely, Vegas is filling in its New Year's Eve dance card. And, the newest announcement will have lovers of Iggy Azalea bouncing over to Drai's.
If you havenít been on The High Roller yet, perhaps you were just waiting for a special occasion. New Yearís Eve, one of the busiest nights on the Las Vegas Strip, is probably not that special occasion you were waiting for; but, if you're up for braving the traffic (or are already planning to stay on or near the Strip), Caesars Entertainment has rolled out some interesting NYE options for revelers who want to celebrate high in the sky.
Three different packages (starting at $2,500, all inclusive) will offer a stationary view of the midnight fireworks from the observation wheel. A limited number of the High Rollerís cabins (basically the upper half) will be loaded with partiers and then the wheel will remain stationary as we tick over into the New Year. An average ride on the High Roller takes about 30 minutes, but this experience will last longer, making the full revolution plus another 30 minutes of fireworks viewing.
