New Year's Eve Open Thread

Colorado is ringing in the new year with marijuana social clubs, open only to members. The first is called, appropriately enough, Club 64 (After Amendment 64 which legalized marijuana in Colorado.) It opened today at 4:20 pm. You can apply for membership here.

Recreational marijuana clubs opened Monday in Colorado, less than a month after the state governor signed into law a constitutional amendment allowing recreational pot use.

With a reggae soundtrack and flashing disco-style lights, Club 64 in an industrial area just north of downtown Denver opened Monday afternoon, with some 200 people signed up. The opening came less than 24 hours after club organizers announced they would charge a $29.99 admission price for the bring-your-own pot club.

What do you think of the President Obama's Happy New Year photo the White House tweeted? I think it's dark and depressing.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

This is an open thread, all topics welcome.

    he's ending Gangnam Style in Times Square on New Year's Eve.

    I enjoyed his commentary on all the scenes from the video.
