Does the thought of a Caribbean-themed New Year's Eve celebration just make you wanna continuously jam to that tropical island sound all night long? Well, then perhaps you should partake in Embassy Suite's Havana Nights, happening on Tuesday, Dec. 31 at 8pm and continues until the wee hours of the morning on Jan. 1, 2020. For just $250 per couple, participants enjoy a full dinner buffet featuring Cuban Cuisine, live music by Swag, a mojito bar, a chance to shop for “Havanas” at a special tent set up by Monte's Cigar shop, a photo booth and champagne toast. Topping it all off, this package deal also features an overnight stay in one of Embassy's suites and a fully cooked, made to order breakfast the next morning. For $80 pairs of people can skip the overnight and just eat and dance until about 1am. (August March)Embassy Suites HotelHavana Nights

Maybe it’s just a phase but so many terrestrial New Year’s Eve events are full of lunatics and most events on the moon just have no atmosphere. This year, the tide may be turning now that the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science has risen to the occasion with an enormous floor map of the moon they borrowed from NASA. From 9am to 11am on New Year’s Eve, folks of all ages can walk the map, try their hand at the lunar scavenger hunt and other space-related activities at New Year’s Eve on the Moon. This event is included with museum admission and registration is not required, but you might want to get there early to find your spot on the moon map before it’s full. It goes without saying that while 2019 is waning, this event is out of this world. (Clarke Condé)New Mexico Museum of Natural History and ScienceNew Year's Eve On the Moon

City on the Edge is a breezy, smart podcast looking at the stories from Albuquerque history that have often been overlooked. Each episode takes a deep dive into a topic like the 1955 crash of TWA flight 260, Sandia Man or the 1918 quarantine. Worthwhile listening that will spur your curiosity about things you didn’t even know about in the city where you live. It’s free and available wherever you get your podcasts. (Clarke Condé)
