Saturday, January 31 I New Year’s Eve powered by The Polkaholics at the DANK Haus Willkommen 2012 at the DANK Haus with a white hot blaze of sequins and guitars known as The Polkaholics. Balloons fall from the gilded ceiling, partygoers warm up with a traditional feuerzangenbowle (a sugar cone soaked in high proof rum and lit on fire over a spiced wine) and learn their future at the Bleigiessen display, the melting of lead or wax which is then dropped into a cold bowl of water. Guests interpret the resulting shape to learn their fortune for the New Year.
