Tonight’ s the night – partiers come out to ring in the new year and have a good time. There is plenty to do in Chattanooga tonight, too. I have listed a few of the places that are having New Year’s Celebrations and have made my picks. Tops on the list for New Year’s Eve is Here Come The Mummies at Track 29, with opening band Milele Roots. For all of you out there that have heard of the boys in bandages, but haven’t seen them – now is the perfect time!

Second on my list would be the annual New Year’s Celebration at Bud’s SportsBar. This is always a good party and Bud Lightning provides the party atmosphere.

The Beaters party at the Choo-Choo is always a good one, with a stellar band and beautiful people. Over at the Doubletree Hotel, the Stratoblasters will kick things off for the evening’s festivities.

Rhythm & Brews has a big party planned, with “That 90’s Show” and the Power Players Show Band.

What ever you decide to do on New Years Eve, do not drink and drive. The police will be out in full force and shouldn’t have to put up with any nonsense. There will be plenty of cabs out tonight, and most bar owners will assist you in getting home safely.

Chairs Cost How Much?

Many times while growing up, I would go to the store with my parents. More often than not, I would see something I wanted, and ask my parents to buy it for me. More often than not, they said no. “Why?” I asked. “Son, money doesn’t grow on trees.” That’s a phrase I’m sure many of us have heard more than once over the course of our lives. However, I have since learned that they were ... (click for more)
