Don't Be Quiet on New Year's Eve


Concentrate. Think back nearly 360 or so days. How did you welcome the year 2007? Was it inexpensive Champagne in polite, plastic flutes while you watched the neighborhood rugrats bang pans on their porches and blow a few fingers off with Black Cats and M-80s? Did you wander back upstairs, honey's hand in yours, feeling a little let down by your passive acceptance of a new year? Well, shoot. Don't make that mistake a second time! At 9 p.m. on New Year's Eve, Rue 13 (1311 Washington Avenue; 314-588-7070), STLectro and the Alley Cat Revue are puttin' on a Studio 54-styley bash dubbed Ruedio 54 (natch). DJ Robotrock & Bobby Analogue provide the beats while the Alley Cats supply, well, the hedonism (bow-chikka-bow-bow). Don't sleep your way into 2008: Frickin' kick its doors down, yeah? Burlesque dancing, fire acts, trapezin' around and a lovely crowd of merrymakers — that's the proper way to begin a new year. Tickets start at $12 and will sell out, so visit now before it's too late.
