New Year's Eve is here, and you know what that means: 1) You're about to face personal accountability and take steps toward becoming a better you, and 2) you have a pretty good chunk of time here to act completely irrationally and live without working toward any goal whatsoever. And we encourage you to make the most of it.
Luckily, on New Year's Eve there will be stores open that are more than happy to enable your regressive, indulgent behavior. Maybe you forgot to buy booze (planning better is a good resolution!)? Don't worry, there are grocery stores open to sell it to you. Maybe you're about to swear off spending so much money all the time? Better impulsively buy a TV at the last minute -- the New You will thank you later.
Anyway, here's a list of places that will actually be open on New Year's Eve.
