As we plow through December and rush headlong towards Christmas, our gaze may begin to turn to New Year’s Eve. If Christmas is a time for celebration with your family and loved ones, then New Year’s Eve is the time to party and get a little wild with your friends (and maybe your family, too)! Watching the clock countdown to midnight is a time-honored tradition, and many of us have experienced this in many different ways. Children may sneakily stay up until midnight to ring in the new year, while adults over the legal drinking age may head to the bar to celebrate with a drink or two in hand. However, there are so many celebrations planned on New Year’s Eve that it can be difficult to decide where you and your friends want to celebrate. Luckily, if you live in Albuquerque, NM, then there’s only one bar you should be considering: The Salt Yard.
