Hedroom HertzIf you're looking to "take a cup of kindness" this December 31, the following local venues will - to borrow some phrasing from "Auld Lang Syne" poet Robert Burns - be more than happy to fill your pint-stowp with a right gude-willie-waught. But they'll also be showcasing some of the area's most popular bands, so take a look at who's playing where, and when, and what sorts of New Year's Eve treats you can expect if you attend.

And if you decide to trek to a local eatery or watering hole on Sunday night, remember to do two things: (1) Be careful during your travels, and (2) tip your wait staff. I don't know about auld acquaintances, but those who work past midnight on New Year's Eve definitely should not be forgot.

Happy New Year from the entire Reader staff. We'll see you in '07!
