Thanks to EVERYONE involved with the 3rd Annual Hayride to Hell New Year's Eve Bash! More Show For Less Dough - that's how we roll on New Year's Eve. We take pride in keeping the ticket price down while offering an enhanced bill of entertainment, and this year we kicked it up a notch by hosting Seattle's first Happy Hour of 2009, offering all our Happy Hour prices and deals from midnight til close. The bands were great: the The Wages of Sin, Ruby Dee & the Snakehandlers, Purty Mouth. The burlesque performers were great: Drew Blood, the Shanghai Pearl, Miss Ravenna Black, and Meghan Mayhem. The crowd was great: after a couple weeks of being hunkered down with the most snow Seattle has seen in more than a century, one of the biggest crowds we've ever seen showed up en masse to ring in the New Year. The economy is tough, more than 20,000 jobs have been lost in the Seattle metro area in the last six months, and we know you think more carefully about how and where you spend your discretionary dough because so do we. As such, from the bottom of our hearts, we're tickled over every one of you who chose to ring in the new year with us. You could have played it safe and conservative by kicking back on the couch with Ryan Seacrest, Kathy Griffin, Dick's Rockin' Eve, some Domino's and a box of Mallomars. Instead, you spent it with us.
