The lack of a West Coast New Year’s event

Good day readers, and welcome to 2013. I hope you’ve had many good celebrations, and a great year ahead of you. I hope to continue this blog, and try and update it more frequently….although I think I do well enough.

Last night, as is tradition, the TV was on showing the countdown to the New Year. On ABC, the Dick Clark extravaganza, with the traditional terrible live music with this years fads, interwined with scenes of Times Square, before the big drop.

On Univision, the exact same thing, but in Spanish.

On both networks (and I assume the rest of them), all these festivities are splattered with a giant LIVE on the top right corner of the screen, as we all count down to midnight at 11:59 PST…..3 hours removed from the actual event. Click to read more!

LA gets late night rail transit

This announcement surprised me, but it’s great to see. When I was in LA earlier this year for a concert, I was able to enjoy a new policy that had recently been implemented (trains every ten minutes until midnight) but had to worry about not missing the last train.

That’s no longer the case. LA obviously has a whole lot of nightlife, and while buses that run 24 hours have been available, there’s an extra comfort in knowing the subway is there for you too.

From the official Metro blog:

All Metro Rail lines will run until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. That includes the Red/Purple Line subway, the Blue Line, Expo Line, Green Line and Gold Line. Click to read more!
