Just the thought of New Year’s Eve in the Gaslamp is enough to make me want to crawl in a hole (give me a break, I’m 40) but the thought of New Year’s Eve in downtown San Diego with live music might make me crawl right back out. It depends. If you are in the same boat as I am, regardless of age, check out these parties. Maybe one of them will call to you.
