Bashes to be the living end of '06
So here's the ticket everyone's bugging me about: The Alliance's New Year's Eve blowout at Les Deux Cafe, which is being hosted by the celebutantes of MTV's "The Hills," as well as Alliance heavies Josh Richman and Hartwell and promoter Kevin Todd. And just to spice things up, DJ Lethal from House of Pain will be spinning.... Casey's Irish Bar & Grille in downtown L.A. has packages starting at $50 for DJs, drinking and overall mayhem. Among the perks: top-shelf liquor and an after-hours party that continues until "whenever." ... Veteran nightlife promoter Steve Dimon is hosting a decadent New Year's Eve party at the Renaissance Hotel and its Grand Ballroom in Hollywood, with prices starting at $100.... Aside from hurling at the Derby after mixing Champagne and tequila in '95, my favorite New Year's Eve memories are courtesy of veteran promoter Joseph Brooks, who likes to mix the new with the old in the form of live gothic entertainment and amazing DJs. This year, head to Tempest in West Hollywood for his twisted fun. And Brooks himself will tweak the turntables around midnight. Price is $20.
