Not only is picking out a festive New Year's Eve ensemble a torturous nightmare, but who has time to squeeze in more shopping this time of year? First World problems are the worst! In order to avoid this most onerous of self-serving tasks, consider getting back to the wild by going au naturale at the Nude New Year's Festival at Haulover Beach Park (10800 Collins Ave., Miami Beach). Registered guests will get to ring in the New Year on the beach in the buff. The festivities begin with a happy hour at 3 p.m., and you should arrive no later than 5 p.m. as the parking lot will be locked at 6. There will be all the usual NYE activities you'd find at a clothed event: dinner, champagne toast, fireworks. But there will also be camping, a drum circle, morning meditation, yoga, and the nude year ritual of writing down your troubles on slips of paper and then letting them burn away. This isn't just a party full of naked people but a two-day camping bacchanalia that borders on the spiritual. Two packages are available: two nights, three days for $224 or one night, two days for $179.
