Classy capital city citizens head to the suave International Club of DC New Year’s Eve Gala with 1,500 other revelers.

Other D.C. denizens who would rather turn the calendar in sloppy fashion join the beer-filled New Year’s Eve PubCrawl DC, where a secret list of venues (revealed just before the event) offer not-so-secret drink deals that are sure to lead to questionable end-of-year decisions.
