The Annual New Year's Eve Bashtacular - Overtime

The people have spoken - the one and only low-cost, high-fun New Year's Eve celebration at T's Pub put on by yours truly is happening!

WHEN: 12/31/14 - Doors open at 8pm, party and open bar kicks off at 9pm.

WHERE: T's Pub on Comm Ave in Boston


WHY: I like to say that this party really just gets right down to the basics - good drinks, good food, good music, and good friends - it's all you need for a great time. This is a private party, so it's just friends and friends of friends. Many people have said that this has been their favorite event to ring in the new year. I'm not going to argue with that. Once you walk in that door with your ticket, you have open access to booze and food without dropping another dime. The entertainment is also I hear. Also, the area on Comm Ave is just far enough away from the hub of the city that the transportation is not a total nightmare - plenty of free street parking and cabs you can actually hail down.

HOW:Like previous years, there will be a limited number of discounted tickets available. Those tickets will be available until they sell-out or December 10th, whichever comes first, so make sure to buy early if you want the discount! The rest of the tickets will then be for sale, available until capacity is reached.

This party is for all of you, so spread the word, bring your friends, and have a genuinely fun time. Hope to see you there!

-DJ Petro
