We survived the Mayan apocalypse, and New Year's Eve is coming. And it's coming in hot.
Fortunately, there's no shortage of parties in this town, no matter what you're into. Bass-thumping dubstep club? Check. Elegant black tie ball at the Symphony? Got it. Hipster bowling party? Over-the-top foodie dinners? Please. This is San Francisco.
Need a little help sorting through the options? Check out our slideshow below for a New Year's Eve party for every San Franciscan, and let us know your plans in the comments section.
The folks at the <a href="http://backofhouse.morganshotelgroup.com/hotel-events/new-years-eve-at-clift/">Clift Hotel</a> don't mess around when it comes to their annual NYE party. This year features a premium hosted bar and appetizers, table service with unlimited bottles, dancing and a soundtrack by DJ Jazzy Jeff.
Lots of booze? Check. Dance party? Yep. Photo booth? Bowling? The cool kids? Must be Mission Bowling Club's NYE party "<a href="http://missionbowlingclub.com/info">Bowl in the New Year</a>."
The selection of NYE-themed restaurant events around the city is enough to give any food nerd gout. But if we had to choose it would be <a href="http://www.25lusk.com/">NYE Luxe at 25 Lusk</a>: special multi-course luxe dinners (caviar, filet mignon, lobster, the works) with wine pairings, midnight champagne and a party scene in the subterranean lounge.
You'd better be in black tie if you even look at the invitation to the <a href="http://www.sfsymphony.org/Buy-Tickets/Festivals/12-13-Special-Presentations/New-Year%E2%80%99s-Eve-Masquerade-Ball-with-the-San-Franci.aspx">San Francisco Symphony’s Masquerade Ball</a>. (It's actually just cocktail attire, but we wouldn't take chances.) One of the most glamorous parties in town, the ball includes a concert, masquerade masks, dancing and live bands and plenty of Prosecco.
You can also expect your burners, steampunks and partiers at <a href="http://www.seaofdreamsnye.com/">Sea of Dreams.</a> And with the vaudeville, burlesque dancers, DJs, costume contests and midnight mayhem, who could blame them?
Visions of dollar signs dancing in your head? No problem! Just head to <a href="http://www.facebook.com/events/133687583447314/">Mighty's free 1984-themed all-night party</a>, which includes a free champagne toast. Or if dancing's not your thing, grab a bottle of vino and head to the Embarcadero for a free firework show.
The High Roller
You could also watch that firework show from <a href="http://www.americanorestaurant.com/events/265/">La Festa di San Francisco</a> at Americano and Hotel Vitale with a five-course Italian dinner, a hosted top shelf bar, DJs and dancing, party favors, champagne and the best view of the firework spectacular in town.
Primus has been hosting a NYE concert for 22 years now. Ring in the 23rd with a motion sickness-inducing live performance at <a href="http://thewarfieldtheatre.com/">Frankenstein's Masquerade</a> at the Warfield.
The Bruce Wayne
If Gotham City was real life, there'd be a New Year's Eve party at City Hall. (At least until it was inevitably broken up by Bane.) We can't give you Gotham, but we can certainly give you the party: DJs and live performances, a massive balloon drop, hosted bar and party favors--all under the famous Rotunda at <a href="http://nyecityhall-2013.eventbrite.com/">NYE City Hall 2013</a>.
If there's one thing the Marina does right, it's food and booze. Case in point: the all-you-can-eat-and-drink <a href="http://www.delarosasf.com/">NYE party at Delarosa</a>. Bottomless bar, beats from DJ Edwin Fabian, dancing, midnight toast, favors and food.
The Burning Man crowd knows a thing or two about an afterburn and New Year's is no exception. Keep the party going on New Year's Day at <a href="http://www.spacecowboys.org/">Breakfast of Champions</a> on Utah Street. DJs, silent discos, booze and food starting at 6 a.m. and lasting "until you cry uncle." Mercy.
