This year seems to have gone by quickly as we are fast approaching 2012. Some people are predicting big changes in the coming year (the 2012 presidential race of course) and whether those changes are good or bad, let’s celebrate the end of this year and a brand new start by hitting up some of the hot spots in Albuquerque!
First we start out with one of the most popular clubs to be at for New Year’s Eve, which is known to have thrown a very bomb party last year, Graham’s Central Station! A very entertaining spot indeed containing 4 areas that offer a variety of music and entetainment and each area have knowledgable bartenders dishing out mixers and beer and, of course, champagne to toast the new year! It’s ALWAYS a blast at the Station so if you’re conflicted on where to go this New Year’s Eve, keep this on your list! $15 at the door before 10 p.m. and then $20 after.

Next up is a club that has rocky track record but that has never stopped them from throwing one awesome party! New Year Eve at Leo’s Nightclub is shaping up to be one of the premier parties and a great way to exit 2011 and enter 2012! Enjoy yourself at a newly remodeled Leo’s as you party in The Vapor Room located on the upper level of Leo’s which is funished with pool tables, vapor products, and other goodies! Very nice!

There’s no better way to start off the new year than by helping out others.
