There are of course lots of New Year’s Eve parties and events going on in Bend tomorrow night, so I thought I’d try to compile a list of the prominent ones I can find. If you know of any others, leave a comment!

The party is free as well, and when you’re there, “pick a red solo cup above the bar to win a chance at free concert tickets, glassware, food, shirts, hats, and membership to the bar!”
