Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Now that Thanksgivukkah and Christmas are over and done with, you have one thing left to do this holiday season: party your face off on New Year's Eve. To give you one less thing to worry about, we've scanned through all of this year's options to pinpoint 14 insane celebrations that are guaranteed good times.

Leading the pack is Rhondapolis, which will transform the entire Standard Downtown into one big debaucherous disco. (Tickets are sold out, so we suggest stalking Craigslist.) For those looking to get into character, there's the annual Cleopatra Ball at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, a full-on toga party in WeHo and even a Game of Thrones affair in Venice. Where will you be when the clock strikes twelve?
