As always the ladies and gents at Reverse Events

events will be holding their 4th
New Years Countdown
at the Dana Hotel. Featuring, among many others, the versatile and virtuous talents of Chicago’s own Dogma

For the visual art minded, Canvas
is presenting their third Voyager
NYE bash with headliner Daedelus
