Miami's 13 Best New Year's Eve 2013 Parties
Calvin Harris. With Jacob Plant. Monday, December 31, 9 p.m., LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-674-4680; livnightclub.com. Tickets cost $375 to $18,000 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. After about 28 years' worth of New Year's Eve parties, we all get sorta sick of premium vodka and Dom Perignon. Just like 28-year-old Calvin Harris, who laments: "This is like a flashback/This is like a dream/This is like all the things you can fit/Inside a memory." Still, a potentially epic time with 18 BFFs has gotta be worth $18,000, right? Definitely, bro.
Santigold and Talib Kweli. With DJ Ideal and Dave Sol. Monday, December 31, 9 p.m., Delano Hotel, 1685 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-672-2000; delano-hotel.com. Tickets cost $200 to $500 plus fees via delanosouthbeach.ticketmob.com. Ages 21 and up. Eat a fancy four-course meal. Go swimming in your birthday suit. Suck back a dozen mojitos at the open bar. Pass out in a cozy daybed. Shake ass with indie-dance goddess Santigold and hip-hop legend Talib Kweli. That's NYE at the Delano. Oh, wait ... Did we forget puking up at midnight in the superswank restroom?
