Yes. Top 5 things to do this weekend other than party your brains out on NYE.
Adventures in Hangovers @ Kobalt
Okay, so after the brains have been partied out, head to this little hangover party on Saturday, January 1, where folks can show up in their pajamas for a complimentary breakfast. Coffee, mimosas, and bloody mary drinks will also be on-hand as guests duke it out for the Best "Morning After" Look award. Check out all the details here.
Holidays at the Heard
This little fest started Thursday and lasts through Sunday. The event features different happenings each day with artist demonstrations, music and dance performances. And, of course, you can munch on some delicious Fry Bread before your 2011 diet program really sets in. See all the details here.
New Year's Day 5k @ Papago Park
So if you're the kind of person who is interested in this, you're probably the kind of person who annoys all your friends by constantly talking about exercise and fitness. Running a race? On New Year's Day? If we didn't spite you so much, we'd admire your tenacity. Find out everything you need to know here.
Fiesta Bowl @ University of Phoenix Stadium
Looks like tickets are still available for the Tostito's Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma Sooners vs. Connecticut Huskies on Saturday, January 1.

Holiday Lights @ Various Locations
Still in the mood to see some sparkly stuff? You better get on the stick because the multiple holiday lights shows around town are getting ready to pack up the bulbs until next season. Head out this weekend to ZooLights, Arizona Celebration of Lights, and the Festival of Lights to get your fix while you still can.
