Do you still not have your New Year's Eve figured out? Have you still not secured your “If it sucks” Plan B or second-party scenario? For those of you not currently holding advance tickets to anything, we've handmade this artisan list of the best New Year's Eve 2015 parties in San Francisco with a smattering of East Bay action also deserving honorable mention. Whether you’re an Amateur’s Night amateur, a glam party professional, or a mortified blackout-er, here is your full inventory of the best Bay Area New Year’s Eve 2016 parties, raves, live music shows, drag shows, burlesque shows, free shows, stand-up comedy shows and shit shows (Yes, one of them is actually called “Shit Show”).

SERIOUSLY: Don't drink and drive! You may encounter surge pricing on Uber and Lyft, but Muni is free. BART is running ‘til 3 a.m. AC Transit is running a Sunday schedule for their all-night bus routes across the Bay. The Transit511 app is very drunk-friendly and will easily plot you a trip home if you need it


New Bohemia NYE at The Armory
Your larger-than-life, big-name DJ massive, possibly-mingling-with-porn-stars option is New Bohemia NYE at the Armory. Deep bass maestros the Stanton Warriors “top” a line-up also featuring Scumfrog, Ben Coda and Bay Area legend Syd Gris in a party that offers humongous illuminated art, crazy performances and that special magic of “Whoa, we’re at the Armory”.
The Armory, 1800 Mission (at 14th St.)

FREE Fireworks Gala at Pier 14
You can totally watch the fireworks for free at Pier 14 (or adjacent areas), but get there early because nearly a quarter million people will show up. Pricier and exponentially more awesome boat tour experiences are offered through the Speakeasy New Year’s Cruise, New Years Rock on the Yacht and New Year’s Eve Fireworks Gala Cruise.
Pier 14 or wherever, depending on whether you paid or you’re just showing up

Flaming Lips, Ratatat Tat, Tycho & more at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
I have heard of exactly one of these artists. But that one is good enough to guarantee a worthwhile New Year’s Eve concert show, where the The Flaming Lips are joined by Ratatat Tat, Tycho, Gramatika, Geographer and nearly a dozen other maybe-good acts with whom I’m not familiar for an epic NYE show.

Breakfast of Champions at The Midway

It’s a new venue called The Midway for the 16th annual Space Cowboys Breakfast of Champions 6 a.m. afterparty, but with the same still-awake-partying clientele and outdoor block party arrangements. “You bet your bitcoin we'll have a big street party surrounding our new home,” Space Cowboys managing producer Andrea Lundquist told SFist. “The street party will consist of dozens of tents, outside bars and seating, food trucks, a pig roast, art cars, our dynamite SF Food Bank volunteers gigging for other folks' breakfast and one giant 100' long tent with a KNOW:AUDIO soundsystem.” The truly hardcore will continue on to Supper of Survivors at Public Works (4 p.m.) and then possibly to the Emergency Room.
