Updated: Dec 22, 2023

New Year's Eve: December 31, 7pm - midnight. Get ready to rewind the clock and party like it's 1980. Join us at Working Hands for the ultimate '80s-themed New Year's Eve bash. Break out the neon, tease that hair, and let's welcome 2024 with a blast from the past!

Groove to iconic beats, show off your best dance moves, and celebrate the New Year in true retro style. It's time to rock the night away and welcome the future with nostalgic flair.

Don't miss out on the fun—grab your legwarmers, dust off those shoulder pads, and let's make this New Year's Eve a totally tubular experience!
