New Year’s Eve in San Francisco
Most of us are not the Rockefellers: we don’t have copious amounts of money to throw into our leisure time, and we are always looking for ways to enjoy ourselves without dropping below the poverty level. This attitude definitely can put a damper on your vacation, but it doesn’t have to. San Francisco in particular has a wealth of activities for those without recourse to a Silicon Valley bank account. In fact, the Bay Area is a host to some fantastic events that cost precisely zero dollars. What makes these activities even more wonderful is that they are unusual, off the beaten track, and will take you to places that you never knew existed.
For those who love to laugh, San Francisco features a wealth of comedians strutting the boards and tossing off jokes for your enjoyment: The Punchline, for instance, which is a classic comedy venue that features both established comedians and those just breaking in to the comedy scene. Another classic San Francisco comedy joint is Cobb’s Comedy club which has been around for 30 years and can seat up to 400 people.
If you are trying to find a unique way to ring in the 2015, you should definitely think about attending the “Last Night” DIY New Year’s Ever Parade and Street Party. Although this is technically in Santa Cruz, a short car ride will drop you into a massive grassroots celebration of the future and Auld Lang Syne. Dress yourself up, down, sideways or however you want because once on the streets of Santa Cruz, the world is transformed. The Parade starts around 5:00, near the Saturn Cafe, and it will include things like musicians, puppets, street performers, sideshow acts, and basically anything you can bring to a parade (and some things that you probably can’t).
At the parade’s end is a massive street party that rages until, well, whenever. Remember when coloring books were cool? Well they are again! At the Monarch, you can chat to guest bartender, listen to him spin all sorts of 90’s R&B throughout happy hour, and color in some of the many coloring books that are provided along with crayons. Do your best because there are plenty of coloring contests that will be judged throughout the night.
At the New Parkway Theater there is a fantastic deal on Wednesday night tickets: pay what you want. Every Wednesday night, the doors to the theater open at 6pm and the admission to every single film (with the exception of private events that you probably aren’t going to anyway) runs on a sliding scale. Now, this isn’t exactly free. You have to pay at least a penny. But you can probably afford that.
