Whatever you did for New Year's Eve, you can rest happily knowing that your night was probably better than Jamie Kennedy's. The actor, perhaps best known for his role in the “Scream” movies, agreed to host “First Night,” a live New Year's Eve celebration on KDOC-TV. The night was meant to be a freewheeling party with a Southern California vibe. Kennedy was joined by a number of other celebrities who, like him, hit their peak around the turn of the millennium, including “American Pie” actress Shannon Elizabeth, hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and soul singer Macy Gray.

Moments before the shoot, we caught up with cover girl Dita Von Teese to find out what the burlesque queen/author/fashion-"It"-girl has been up to, and how she plans to ring in the new year. Here's a hint: If you're invited to her place Monday night, you might want to bring a cream pie. You just got back from vacationing in Egypt. What was that like? It was great. I spent a week on Christian Louboutin's houseboat and we took a trip down the Nile. It was a glamorous, fabulous sightseeing trip.

Whether you're saying, “Good riddance, 2012” or “Thanks for the memories,” Las Vegas has a venue where you can welcome the new year in whatever style suits you. You can try the $20 all-you-can-drink party at the Silverton or the $60,000 “Ultimate” package at the Mandarin Oriental . You can turn back the clock to the 1920s and party in an airport hangar or listen to a Grammy winner. Party central, of course, is Las Vegas Boulevard, which transforms itself into a festive pedestrian mall, where the masses, drinks in hand, count down the seconds to a gigantic fireworks display that rings in the new year.

Attention L.A. hipster-parents: New Year's Eve isn't just for grown-ups anymore. And apparently, neither is alternative comedy, that awkward, absurdist brand of humor so popular with the skinny jeans-and-cardigan crowd. So take note of "The Not Inappropriate Show" on Thursday afternoon at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Hollywood. The show is curated by Bob Odenkirk, one of the alternative-comedy scene's godfathers, and his talent-manager wife, Naomi, and features sketches written for adults but "not inappropriate" for kids.

Feeling impulsive and hoping to book a last-minute getaway to Las Vegas for New Year's Eve ? Despite the notion that Sin City is virtually sold out and that the only remaining rooms are wildly expensive, a variety of lodging options is still available. And a two-night (Sunday and Monday) stay on the Strip can be as little as $320, taxes included. That rock-bottom price is for a classic room at the Riviera, and we found it both at the hotel's website and the Vegas.com travel portal . A couple of blocks north, a deluxe room at the Stratosphere for the same two nights is selling for $393.

McDonald's won't be the only restaurant chain with a presence on Christmas Day, as other chains open their doors to consumers who don't celebrate the holiday or are doing so without home-cooked food. “Denny's is always open, including all 24 hours of Christmas Day,” the diner chain said in a statement. In 2011, the company's restaurants served more than 1.5 million guests on Dec. 25 -- the busiest day of the year for the second straight year. The most trafficked Christmas hours for Denny's?
