BENGALURU: Bored of same old December 31 parties?  Here’s a look at spaces that will let you usher in 2017 by defying conventions

Celebrating Same Love
It’s just another house party or so they say. Love loses gender barriers at this New Year’s Eve party at The Humming Tree that promises an inclusive celebration. Say goodbye to the naysayers and usher in 2017 with at this gender neutral space that will see a performance by Maya the Drag Queen, a fire show by Smriti Singh and specials by chef Anuj Mehta.
When: December 31, 7pm
Where: The Humming Tree

Screen a Movie
Is there a favourite movie you’d love to watch, without braving the rush at multiplexes? You can have a movie screening at home. Rent out projectors and screens from Rentsher for B1,000 a day. You can follow it up with an intimate party with friends and family for which you could rent out Karaoke sets and indoor lighting from the same place.

Go Back in Time
While everyone rushes headlong and high into the new year, you could take a walk through the city’s past. Bangalore Running and Walking Tours is organising a British Bangalore Walk. The guide will introduce you to buildings in Cubbon Park, from the British era, and tell you whose are the statutues that dot the park. It costs B600 per head. When: December 31
Where: Queen Statue of Cubbon Park

Reflect Back on the Year
Sit together with a group of like-minded people and mull over the year on the things you learnt. Make the necessary peace and gear up for the new year as qualified facilitator and psychotherapist will help you to reflect and manifest your renewed dreams.
When: December 31, 11am to 3 pm
Where: The Yogisthaan Cafe, Indiranagar

Trees and Healthy Cooking
How about cooking healthy meals and staying in a farm at Chikkabalapur, and spending free hours hugging and meeting trees? MyTreeGame and MyEatingGame are hosting one such event from December 31 to January 3. The group plans to “eliminate all whites” in the cooked meals, which means there’ll be jaggery (instead of sugar), rock salt (instead of refined) and millets, red rice and whole wheat, all made in cold-pressed oils. Participants will then be invited to meditate and built a compost toilet, during the three days. Whatsapp 91-8884591643, if you are interested.
When: December 31 to January 3  Where: Samagama farm, Chikkabalapur
