Plush costumes are encouraged at The Venue's Furry Eve


Furries – adults who like to dress up in anthropomorphic animal outfits à la theme park characters – don't necessarily sexualize the hobby. But a lot of them do. And for this party, which we think is the most unique NYE bash you'll have the opportunity to witness this year, sexy is on the table. Mingle with others interested in sultry giraffes, foxy foxes and the like, then catch a burlesque performance from dancers dressed up like your favorite vixens, ponies and more. Furry costumes aren't mandatory, but they are encouraged, so at least strap a tail to your rear or don a pair of fuzzy ears. You wouldn't want to seem like a weirdo, after all.
