MONDAY DECEMBER 31, 2012 New Year's Eve We have put together a bar and restaurant guide for dining out on New Year's Eve. But if Live Music is what you want, the can't-miss show is the Final (final?) performance by the G-Funk All-Stars at Buster's. TUESDAY JANUARY 1, 2013 Happy New Year! But before you move on... take a look back at Ace's Year in Review in Food, the Year in Review in Movies, and the Year in Review in Books.
