Partying like it's 1999  JAN 01 1999

At 4 minutes 'til midnight, they started playing Prince's 1999, just like I had predicted. And I didn't mind....even though I thought I would have. The dance floor was packed and everyone was jumping and swaying and screaming the words to the song.

"Gonna party like it's 1999!"

Actually, it was probably the most fitting venue for the song, the very same First Avenue nightclub where Purple Rain was filmed and where Prince himself used to play.

I did a small piece for {fray}: my resolution for 1999.
