Get ready to ring in 2014!

Last day of 2013, folks.  Y’all excited?

We’ve got some great options available for you to partake in for NYE…

Starting off with the biggest party of the year -A Gatsby Affair.  The Stage at the Santa Ana Star Center hosts the affair in a roaring ’20s style that Gatsby himself would be proud of.  Don’t have a flapper dress or tux for the night?  No problem!  Runway Apparel and Dressed to Kill are partnering to offer amazing options on stunning apparel for the guys and dolls.  A reminder -be safe and responsible with your celebrations tonight, folks.

If you’re wanting to grab a great nosh for your party, or a gift for your party’s host, Edible Arrangements STILL are taking orders for NYE delivery.  Judy Dominguez brought in a few examples of their sweet presentations and shares why fruits are the perfect nosh for New Year’s Eve.  You can place your order by calling 888-0100.

The last day of the year also brings the last day to make a charitable donation for the 2013 tax year.  Why not make that last-minute donation to Joy Junction?  Founder, CEO and author Jeremy Reynalds stops by the studio to talk about how you can make those donations, both monetary and in-kind, as well as donate your time as a volunteer.  Remember folks, homelessness is an issue 365 days a year.  While the holidays see the highest support for our neighbors in need, the need doesn’t disappear January 1.

If you’re looking to start 2014 by expanding your home to a needy pet, you still have a few hours to take advantage of the 12 Strays of Christmas program with the City of Albuquerque’s Animal Welfare department.  We’re meeting Truman, a five-year old Hound mix, who has a sweet disposition, an inquisitive personality and loving heart.  Call 311 to give him a home.

You ever locked your keys out of your car?  It’s something we’ve all done at times, and when it happens, you want to make sure you have a reputable locksmith assisting you.  Pop A Lock offers comprehensive services for home, work and auto, as well as a great program that will assist you in getting your car open for free!

If you’re still looking for things to do to ring in the New Year, AlbuquerqueAbout.com‘s Aileen O’Catherine brings some great options to the Style set.  There are a variety of options, whether you’re looking for a raucous celebration or a quiet, cultured evening of entertainment.  Regardless of what you do, celebrate 2014 responsibly.

Lastly, we’re looking ahead into 2014 with psychic Cynthia Hess, who is predicting a proactive zeitgeist for the year.  It’s time to put those plans into action, folks.  She’s seeing a positive slant on the year, which is good news for all.  We’re also looking a little closer on the calendar, like this weekend, with the Cardboard Playhouse.  If your kiddos have a dream of the stage and stardom, they can get proactive by auditioning for Peter Pan Jr.  The company is the only children’s theatre organization in New Mexico that casts solely based on talent -not tuition.

Again, can’t stress this enough, folks.  If you celebrate tonight -do it responsibly.  Designate a driver.  Arrange for a post-party ride.  Stay at your friend’s house or resort of choice.  Keep the roads safe for all and make it a Happy New Year.

 

See you in 2014!
