New Years Eve parties in and around Albany

Below is a list of events that I could find from places that have put together an event for NYE. Almost every bar has a vague event listing for “a DJ” and a $150 open bar, which is why those are explicitly excluded. If I missed anything actually worthwhile, please email or tweet me the info and I will add it.
