If you’re looking for something to do tomorrow to celebrate the end of 2014 and the arrival of 2015, here’s some options. None of them are 100 per cent guaranteed to be a good time. That’s where you come in, as no matter how much we might like to, we can’t do your partying for you.

Outside of Chuck Negron, who was one of the founding members of Three Dog Night back in 1968, there’s limited YouTube options tied to most of these acts, so to close here’s U2 doing “Where the Streets Have No Name” at a show in Chicago in 2005:

  1. C’mon, Greg, if you go, I’ll go! We’ll be the life of the Smitty’s new year’s eve karaoke party!

  2. I wonder if Chuck Negron (formerly of Three Dog Night) is finding that “One is the loneliest number…”

  3. Ha! Good one, Barb! Have a happy new year’s eve, however you choose to ring in the new year. Maybe Greg and I will see you at Smitty’s karaoke???

  4. Sorry, guys: I karaoke’d my voice into surgical-intervention territory several years ago, so those days are over. I’ll be taking in a movie and having dinner with grandchildren, but please sing a few for me (especially beach Boys songs, if they still have them on the menu).
    All the best for 2015!

  5. Wring out the old year with pancakes & karaoke. At the break, join us just outside the double door for a sweet schmoke break as we contemplate the parking lot, the food at Original Joe’s, Old Safeway vs New Coop, Robin’s vs. Tim’s, and how much you drank on NYE when you were 17, the t-shirt you wore in -30C, and how sick you got afterwards (was it the booze, the cold, or the chick I frenched with the runny nose?) Bring yo A game

  6. I LOLed at your last comment Talbot. Never say never. The new Independent Grocer might attract a whole new clientele to that little strip mall!

  7. Thanks for the post and the update, Greg! Reginans should give you way more love than they do.

  8. Maybe next time Greg is at Smitty’s karaoke, he should throw on a hat and fake beard and belt out the ZZTop classic “Gimme All Your Lovin” — I can picture him rocking the stage with that one. Barb and I can sing back-up — c’mon, Barb, you KNOW you want to!

    But, seriously, Greg rocks the Dog Blog — not really sure how he can possibly be so productive on such a wide variety of issues, and I’m always thankful for his reminders and reviews about so many great events happening in Regina.
