2007 comes to an end tonight, and as usual there are mixed feelings. Sadly, today marks the final issue of The Cincinnati Post after 126 years, but tomorrow brings a new year and the promise of a fresh start for all of us.
If you're still looking for a party for tonight, CityBeat offers lots of options for the adventurous: check our complete New Year's Eve listings here as well as our recommended music shows here and our recommended events here. No need to go into details now -- check out the listings and decide what you're in the mood for. Don't forget that you can get a free cab ride home inside the I-275 loop.
Dec. 31 is as good a time as any to look back on the year and relive the highs and lows. Time magazine offers an intriguing Top 10 list of the year's underreported stories, starting with war-torn Somalia as the new Darfur. For a mainstream weekly magazine, the list is surprisingly broad. Not as interesting as the recent Top Censored Stories of the Year from Project Censored, but a good read.
The past two CityBeats have reviewed 2007 as well, so check us out if you're interested in our critics' takes on the highs and lows in local music, local dining, local politics, local theater, local art, local sports and everything else local.
Have a safe and festive New Year's Eve. Say goodbye to 2007 and hello to the future.
