Hipsters, unite! There is a non-mega club NYE party waiting for you and your fixed-gear riding sweetheart. Not interested in poppin' a bottle of Cristal? Don't worry; you can down all the PBR you want instead. Not in the mood for house music? Good news -- this party will consist only of all the indie rock and ironic '90s hip-hop jams your heart desires. Warning: You might want to pack a helmet, because once midnight rolls around, 1,000 bouncy balls will be dropping from above.

7. NYE 2013 Dirty Disco Ball. 10 p.m. at Exit 66 Nightclub, 219 S. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale; call 954-357-9981, or visit Tickets cost $10 to $720, plus fees. Age 21 and up.

Now's your chance to travel back to a better time, when John Travolta reigned supreme and the hustle was everyone's go-to dance move. Don't be shy. Wobble in to Exit 66 on your platform shoes, and try not to trip over those polyester bell-bottoms on your way to the dance floor. Hopefully, at midnight you'll find your own Tony Manero to smooch under the glittering disco ball.

6. Paris Is Burning. With Oscar G., DJ Ruen, and Donnie Lowe. 9 p.m. at Pangaea/Gryphon, 5711 Seminole Way, Hollywood; call 954-581-5454, or visit Tickets cost $60 to $120 plus fees. Age 21 and up.

If there's anyone from the past that we'd love to party with, it'd have to be Marie Antoinette. Known for her wild celebrations, expensive taste, and gambling, there's no doubt in our minds that she would have been a kick-ass NYE date. We're pretty sure there won't be any beheadings at this fete, but we can promise you'll be praying for a guillotine the following morning.
