Uptown New Year's Eve 

click to enlarge sl_nye_gravelpic2.jpg

Not many Upstate communities make a big deal about New Year's Eve. (Saratoga's 15,000-person First Night event being a notable exception.) But for the third year in a row, Kingston will be dropping the ball—at 10 seconds to midnight on Wall Street. What started as a DIY, let's-put-a-party-together effort has become a Kingston tradition, with street performers, vaudevillian-styled acts, burlesque acts, music from Bella's Bartok, Caprice Rouge, and Heart String Hot Club, and an appearance by Baby New Year and Father Time. Restaurants will be open late—Duo Bistro and Café East will be offering breakfast after midnight. BSP Kingston will be open for an after-midnight dance party with electro-swing DJ Dr. Suds in its mammoth back room. Bspkingston.com.
