NYE Block Party at the Crowne Plaza Hotel...
You've crunched the numbers, and even though we've still got a couple months to go in 2012, you've decided it's time to get started on the countdown to New Year's Eve. Send out '12 in style with an eleventh-hour Adventure that promises to be seriously intense: entry to the NYE Block Party, Colorado's largest all-night New Year's Eve hotel takeover party with live music, multiple bars, and more, courtesy of The Collective 360 (price varies based on ticket package).
Head to the Crowne Plaza Hotel -- just 15 minutes east of Denver -- on the evening of December 31 dressed to the nines. From 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., we'll go crazy eights with thousands of other revelers at a rocking New Year's Eve party in Colorado's largest hotel event space. Concert-style lighting and laser shows will ensure we're in seventh heaven; live bands and DJs will have us rocking out six ways to Sunday; and platform dancers and stilt-walkers will give new meaning to the term "high five."
Those of us with the good four-tune to snag VIP tickets will gain admission to the event an hour earlier (8 p.m.) than the general crowd for a private mixer at the hotel restaurant. We'll also enjoy a threesome of sweet extras: fast-track check-in, coat check, and access to an exclusive VIP area with our own bar, a private dance floor, and elevated cabanas. Limo VIP ticketholders needn't worry about parking, however: a Lincoln stretch limo is ours from 5 to 11 p.m. to pre-party in Denver in style, and includes a red carpet roll-out.
With only two shakes 'til midnight, we'll start Colorado's largest-ever balloon drop before cannons cover the crowd in confetti. As the night draws to a close, ticketholders with included hotel rooms will retreat to the nearby Hilton Homewood Suites (choice of a one-bedroom suite with one king bed or two double beds) via a complimentary shuttle. Count on it: This is one Adventure that'll guarantee you have a Happy New Year!

Running of the Santas Bar Crawl
You don't believe in the magic of Santa anymore, but the magic of the Running of the Santas? Well, that's plain to see. Experience it firsthand with a three-block run in a Santa suit followed by a raucous celebratory bash at the "North Pole."
We'll begin our day as the man in red on December 1 at the Ginn Mill, where our holly jolly team awaits our arrival. We'll check in and receive a drink ticket to four participating bars, which will ensure the rest of the day runs smoothly. Dress in a top-notch Santa suit and join more than 5,000 Kris Kringles at participating bars like Hayters & Co. and Whiskey Bar before the official run at 4 p.m.
Once the shades are closed on our pre-party, it's time for the main event. The whole group will sprint three blocks, with crowds cheering and gawking all along the way. The destination: Ginn Mill (aka the North Pole). We'll celebrate like it's December 25 (and we've just brought joy to children the world over). It's ho-ho-hard to think of a jollier way to spend a day.
Howl at the Moon
$40 to Spend on Cover, Drinks, and Merchandise ...
You're a seasoned night owl, but traditional, laid-back lounges and bars can rock you right to sleep. Round up your wildest flock of friends and pay $20 for a $40 Howl at the Moon voucher, which will be exchanged at the front door for a gift card valid for cover charges, drinks, and merchandise. Part lounge, part club, and fully festive, the rock 'n' roll dueling-piano bar in LoDo is the ultimate spot for bachelorette parties, birthdays, graduation celebrations, and anyone who can belt out classic tunes from the '60s to today -- on or off key -- while showcasing their hottest dance moves. Kick off the interactive live music experience with fruity cocktails or massive "buckets" to share, such as the rum-heavy Hurricane, and don't be shy about requesting your favorite song -- HATM's players can learn to play and sing an unfamiliar song within five minutes. Don't sleep on this deal, rest is for the bored.
