Staying in Tonight?

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

New Year's Eve is so overrated. Bars, clubs and restaurants charge up the wazoo for drinks and eats that you'd never think about paying any other night of the year. So if you don't feel like dodging drunks on the freeways at 12:15 a.m., stay in, invite a few friends over and toast to 2007 in the comfort of your own home.

While waiting for the ball to drop, why not rent a flick that features some of the best New Year's Eve scenes? Here's the top five according to a recent Fandango poll (as of this posting):

  1. When Harry Met Sally
  2. (38%)
  3. The Poseidon Adventure
  4. (22%)
  5. Poseidon
  6. (22%)
  7. Strange Days
  8. (11%)
  9. 200 Cigarettes
  10. (7%)
