Swingin' New Years Eve
Sometimes you want to enter the future while paying tribute to yesteryear. It seems a bunch of parties make this their thang, but at Retro Lounge, formerly 5 Points Lounge and Monterrey Club, has kept their Rockabilly aesthetic steady, day in and day out. They'll be welcoming 2014 with a Rat Pack tribute by Tony Martelli, more sounds by the Retro Lounge Swing Band, and DJ Ronn's bringing videos from the past. Naturally, there will be burlesque - "Bump and Grind Classic Vegas" style - tattooed ladies, and Frank Sinatra lookalikes. Times Square and a balloon drop will connote the arrival of January First. Remember, the key here is: It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing.
Tue., Dec. 31, 8 p.m.-3 a.m., 2013
