has been doing an impromptu ball drop for years. It only lasts a few minutes, but they drop a ball from the street lamp-usually within a few minutes of the actual New Year's'. The best part is the mutton-chopped, middle-aged, giant, diapered Baby New Year. It's all over and done in a few minutes, but the champagne flows freely, the locals get loco, and if you didn't bring someone to kiss, someone will kiss you by accident. Afterward, Rocket to Venus is only a short crawl away or you can make the three-minute stumble to Frazier's, which parties so hard there are people there still going from New Year's Eve 2009.
