Los Angeles: Celebrate with the Stars

L.A. has the balmy weather and the beautiful people but it lacks a cohesive city center for a fab, outdoor, Euro-style party for people to congregate and toast the New Year. But this doesn't mean Angelenos don't know how to celebrate the arrival of in glitterati style. Many locals dance the night away at glam house parties or fête at stylish restaurants, bars, clubs and celeb-heavy hotels like the W Hollywood and The Hollywood Roosevelt. In the heart of Hollywood, revelers can ring in at the Las Palmas Block Party, while the gorgeous Egyptian Theater on the Walk of Fame is hosting the Cleopatra's NYE Ball. A more sedate affair is the annual Rose Parade in posh Pasadena. Officially the Tournament of Roses Parade, the 125th edition of the 5 1/2-mile, two-hour spectacle, titled "Dreams Come True," will feature equestrian units, colorful floral floats and marching bands. It draws a crowd and folks set up camp the night before to snag a prime viewing spot, so make sure to get there early.
