Making Grown Men Cry Since 1992
There are so many reasons to honor the passing of 2006. It brought us the Nintendo Wii, a democratic change of heart, a jobless Rumsfeld, Britney finally dumping K-Fed and my first kitten. There are also plenty of reasons to toast its demise, like the re-signing of the Patriot Act, massive flooding in Albuquerque, the rising death toll in Iraq and Mel Gibson’s drunken “incident.” In retrospect, 2006 pretty much sucked until November. Getting my kitten was the best thing to happen before fall—the inevitability of 2007 must be rubbing off on the cosmos.Whether hailing in a new beginning or drinking away the memories of good ol’ ’06, use our New Year’s Guide to help you find the perfect place to forget it all. Just remember to drink responsibly and never, never, never drive drunk.
