As 2011 wanes into 2012, the annual Chicago NYE Ball sprawls through three rooms of gambling, drinking, and dancing until the wee hours. More than 10 local DJs with state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems fuel club moves before headliner Lil Jon leads the charge to midnight with party-themed hits such as “Get Low” and remixes of LMFAO’s “Shots” and “Drink,” riding the success of recent album Crunk Rock. Up to 5,000 revelers will fill the halls with jubilant rumpus from noisemakers and party favors. To give dancers a breather, 15 dealers staff a Las Vegas–style casino boasting craps, roulette, blackjack, and guess-how-many-jelly-beans jars, donating 100% of all proceeds to Kids Fight Cancer. At midnight, Lil Jon counts down to the new year before a confetti storm pelts partiers, letting couples embrace under the cover of vibrant paper snow. A strict dress code requires all attendees to wear ball-appropriate gear, such as dresses, ties, and glass shoes.
