Miami's 13 Best New Year's Eve 2013 Parties
Carl Cox. Monday, December 31, 9 p.m., Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-695-8411; mansionmiami.com. Tickets cost $250 to $20,000 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Yeah, yeah, yeah ... You could pay $250 to enjoy the coming of the New Year like some sorta totally average electronic dance music fan. Or you could max out the credit cards to celebrate like the Cox man with a $20,000 "Your Own Party on the Stage" package, complete with Grey Goose, Moët, and party favors!
Shwayze. With Mike Russ, Gino G, Chris Valencia, and the Problem Kids. Presented by Red Rabbit.

Are you, as 26-year-old SoCal rapper Aaron Smith (AKA Shwayze) might say, "on your Shway shit"? Will you get drunk off love and champagne on South Beach for NYE? Will you meet a stranger "hot like cashmere"? Will you do it "in public/Let them all see, fuck it"?
