New Year

Wed 27 Dec 2006 In: Events

Here's our guide to events across Aotearoa to welcome in 2007… so what are you waiting for? Even if you only hit the clubs one night a year, make it this one! Auckland: Tickets are selling well for the biggest gay NYE party in the city – JACK-OFF 2007! There are three floors of entertainment at Galatos, with a HUGE line-up of star appearances. Buckwheat, Roger Perry, Bambi Slut, the Vodaphone Warriors, Paul Rutherford from Frankie goes to Hollywood, the North Shore Pony Club and many more… plus those JACK go-go boys. It's the party everyone's talking about. Lock up your Dads! New Year's Eve is always the busiest night of the year at URGE. It's free entry all night, with DJ's Mauri and Antony will help usher in the New Year. “As usual, all the hottest men will be around,” says Paul – and the night is his birthday bash as well. Plus – don't miss their next ‘underware' party on 2nd January! The oh-so-very-glam DJ Wanda Lamour will count down to the New Year at PINK DOLLAR on Albert Street… and after 4am it's the Pink Sunrise recovery party, with special performances that have to be seen to be believed! Plus there's a sophisticated (but still free!) party at WITCH on Ponsonby Road. “Happy camp New Yeah's Eve,” says that insane dragolicious diva Miss Ribena… she's pulling out all the stops at FAMILY on New Year's Eve. The rumours are true - she's gonna throw $1,000 into the dancefloor crowd, and feature shows from all the K' Road superclub's award-winning drag queens throughout the night. Hamilton: There's a free glass of champers on your arrival at GLAMZ! New Year's Eve party – doors open at 7pm (only $5 cover charge and free nibbles too). The Waikato's brand new LGBT bar VENOM on Victoria Street is also open for drag and DJ entertainment all night. Hunterville: It's all on again at VINEGAR HILL: the campsite is already packed as usual, and there's even been a Civil Union! The Queen of Vinegar Hill says all are welcome to join them for the annual dance party on New Years Eve with performances, music and the traditional fire. Join them at the beautiful Putai Ngahere Reserve on the banks of the Rangitikei River… more details (and a map) on their website: Wellington: Miss Arabia and Ellie Kat are your hosts for iMERST's Neon Dance Party. All three levels of the massive club will be open – and the cover charge is only $10. OUR BAR's beach-themed party will see prizes galore for the best beachwear on the night – no cover charge. Takaka Valley: 100kms west of Nelson on the top of the South Island sits AUTUMN FARM, and on New Year's Eve it's their 12th annual dance party – so celebrate the queer New Year at their Summer Camp… find them at: Christchurch: The unmissable Miss Beaver Brown hits the Garden City to host the New Year's Eve ‘Larger Than Life' party at CRUZ. There's also performances from the “Queen of the Year' Miss Starlight at HEAVEN'S ABOVE, with DJ Flushman spinning the discs. Matt Akersten - 27th December 2006
