CapRadio Guide to Celebrating New Year's


Gather around dear listeners, and we’ll tell you a tale of celebrating the new, bidding adieu to the old and how best to enjoy this calendar renewal holiday.

There are plenty of places to party in the new year, but one of the best places is going to be where you can see fireworks (twice in one night), and that would be Old Sacramento.

Celebrations In Old Sacramento

If you are going out be sure to play it safe by selecting a designated driver or taking advantage of ride-sharing services like Lyft and Uber, or even better get a free ride home thanks to Berg Injury Lawyers. Free rides from bars, restaurants or hotels in downtown Sacramento, up to $35, are available from YellowCab Co., so put this number in your phone: (916) 444-2222. 

Stay In And Challenge Your Friends To A Cocktail Competition

We had an inter-office beef to settle before Christmas and decided it was an excellent excuse to create a video for you.


New Years Morning Hangover Cures

For many folks you can't ring in the new year without a drink or two, or three, and all too often that means nursing a mean hangover come New Years Day. Here are our recomendations for taming the ranging beast residing in your head after a long night of drinking.

"Jimboys tacos. I think it's the grease component, it seems to be the magical elixir that sooths and coats the stomach."

Bob Moffitt, Sacramento Region Reporter


“Lots of water while you’re drinking… [and after] more water and chocolate milk. I don’t know if [the milk] helps the hangover or just tastes really good.”

Joe Barr, Director of News and Information 


“Don’t mix anything with extra sugar. Drink [your liquor] neat or on the rocks, and don’t mix different alcohols… [and after] water, water, water.”  

Al Gibes, Director of Digital Content


“Drink water and suffer.”

Marnette Federis, Digital News Producer


“Be way too manly for hangovers.”

Alan Ray, Senior News Editor


“I don't get hangovers, I go to bed early... but if I DID get a hangover I’d have a chili burger from Willie’s.”

Kent Teeters,  Classical Content Coordinator & Morning Host


“Milk thistle, available in the vitamins section of your local grocery store.”

Nick Brunner, Host of Blue Dog Jam


“Take two ibuprofen before you go to bed. In the morning, eat a little salt and grease; that helps break up the alcohol.”

Cale Wiggins, Classical Host
