First there was Y2K, and that turned out to be no big deal. Then, in 2011 we were all supposed to be raptured (well, me at least, anyways), but that didn’t pan out either. Now it’s the Mayans’ turn. Will the third time be the charm here? I guess we’ll find out this Friday …
Bob, Joe and Leo’s End of the World Birthday Celebration
Tonight, Thursday, Dec. 20, Bob Lehman, Joe Gregore and Leo Caion will be kicking off the coming apocalypse with a joint End of the World Birthday Party. “Come celebrate your last day on earth by celebrating our first day on earth” they advise.
The plan is to start at Wang’s North Park between 6 and 9 pm for drinks, appetizers and games, then head over to Bourbon Street for the Wet underwear contest and more. And even better … if you bring a toy for a local toy drive, they’ll buy you a drink!
Last Day on Earth Party at Rich’s
Then on Friday the 21st, doomsday itself, there are a couple of big parties coming up. Rich’s will be having a Last Day on Earth Party, featuring DJ Dirty Kurty in the main room playing electro pop remixes, and DJ Will Z in the front spinning hip hop and pop videos.
Plus, Ukrainian pop sensation Mika Newton will be there debuting her new single Come Out and Play.
There’s no cover before midnight if you text Rich’s to 46786, or $2 off anytime with you SDPIX VIP sticker.
End of the World Party at 1202
Across the street at 1202, they are planning to go out in a blaze of glory too on Friday, with an End of the World Party with DJ Von Kiss. She reportedly has a special set created just for this final occasion!
At 1202, the End of the World will have no cover before 11 pm, and only $3 after.
Since I’m not exactly sure what time the Mayans are going to end the world today, I’d say that early arrivals are advisable in any case, wherever you go tonight.
Winter White Party at Rich’s
At SDPIX, the eternal optimists there have gone out on a limb in case the Mayans are wrong, and planned some events for after this Friday. This Saturday, for example, will (hopefully) be the Winter White Party at Rich's. This sexy winter party will include frosty go-go boys, free wintery body paint, and music by DJ Taj (10 pm to midnight) and DJ Nikno (midnight to close).
Naturally, customers are encouraged to wear snowy white attire, and as I mentioned above, the body paint lady will be there to accessorize your outfit to perfection. For a good idea of what to wear, check out photos from past Winter White parties here.
Those with an SDPIX VIP sticker will receive $5 off cover before 11 pm. If you don't have an SDPIX VIP membership, send text SDPIX to 313131 and show the welcome message to the cashier for $5 off cover before 11 pm.
If you don’t already have a VIP sticker, not to worry … SDPIX staff will be on hand throughout the night to sign you up.
Manic Monday: Naughty or Nice Party at Brass Rail
Then on Monday, San Diego’s best '80s night will have a special Christmas Eve event, the Naughty or Nice Party at the Brass Rail. Come dressed in your best naughty or nice attire, and the Santa at the door will give you 2 for 1 cover (which is $5) before 10:30 pm.
