Welcome 2011 with a bang!

Let’s all gather round to say goodbye to 2010 with a bang! This weekend, party up a storm at the coolest joints while fireworks usher in 2011 in significant style.




What better place to ring in the New Year than at Singapore’s iconic Marina Bay waterfront? For a night you’ll never forget, don’t miss the Celebrate 2011 Countdown Party (Fri, Dec 31) which features sizzling star segments involving both local and foreign artistes. Of course, end the night to spectacular fireworks displays.

If you can’t wait till New Year’s Eve to get groovy, check out The Blacklight Party (Wed, Dec 29), Singapore’s very first UV light car park party! Don’t miss this – where else would you get to play glow-in-the-dark beer pong?

The end of the year makes some feel nostalgic, so if you’re one of thee sensitive souls, take the opportunity to check out some unique local history at the Boat Quay Historical Pub Walk (every Thurs). Long before the area became an expat hangout, these surrounds actually held many fascinating secrets!

If, on the other extreme, you’ve partied too hard on New Year’s Eve, recuperate by the beach at Tanjong Beach Club’s Brand New Day Beach Party (Sat, Jan 1), where you can take the opportunity to make as many new year resolutions as you want. A new dawn beckons, after all!

Round up the weekend with a rousing concert by local Malay rock veterans Lovehunters (Sat, Jan 1, tickets still available). Perhaps their long-standing musical prowess and showmanship might even motivate you to pick up a musical instrument.

Phew! We can’t wait for the weekend to get here. For more inspiration on what to do, check out our comprehensive events calendar. Happy, happy new year everyone, and see you back here in 2011 to find out what’s going on next week!
