Miami's 13 Best New Year's Eve 2013 Parties
Drake. With Kayper. Monday, December 31, 9 p.m., Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-538-2000; fontainebleau.com. Tickets cost $250 and up plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Who is every girlfriend's favorite rapper? No doubt, it's supersensitive tough guy Aubrey Drake Graham. That's why surprising your pretty little GF with tix to Drizzy's NYE is a very dangerous idea. He will exclude you from the VIP. He will charm your lady with his favorite drink, the Sprite-and-wine spritzer. And he will take her to a private poolside cabana for a cuddling sesh. Oh yeah, Drake will steal the best you ever had. Just ask Chris Brown.
Pitbull. With special guests. Monday, December 31, 9 p.m., American Airlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 786-777-1000; aaarena.com. Tickets cost $52 to $192 and up plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Ages 21 and up. When Dat Lil' Chico wants to wish all of Dade County "¡Prospero Año Nuevo!," he's gotta rent out a huge-ass party place. You know, like a freaking basketball arena. And obviously, if you're straight off la esquina, there's nowhere that you'd rather ring in 2013 than Armando Cristian Pérez's celebración at the AAA, sucking down a colada toast and singing "que no pare la fiesta" as La Gran Naranja drops at midnight. ¡Daleee!
