New Year's Eve 2012: Miami's Guide to Partying Too Hard and Drinking Too Much

Wanna know the truth about New Year's Eve?

Well, it ain't the kickoff to a fresh, 365-day fiesta full of fun and promise. Quite the opposite -- this end-of-year holiday is your absolute last chance to overspend and overindulge before suppressing your natural urge to party, quitting the bottle, stopping the drugs, starting a diet, and finally following a superstrict Quicken-powered personal budget.

So seize NYE and see the cut for Crossfade's still-expanding guide to partying too hard, spending too fast, and drinking too much.
