Dear GYA, I want to remind the citizens of Salt Lake City to have a fun, safe celebration tonight. If you're going to drink alcohol, remember to drink in moderation, call a cab if you've had too much and, most importantly, don't end up at a club that plays excessive amounts of dubstep. Seriously, anything to do tonight that doesn't involve a butt-ton of dubstep? - Chris Burbank, Salt Lake City Chief of Police
Chief Burbank, Thank you for this important public-service announcement. Here are a few ways to ring in the New Year:
