Anybody can go out to any fabulous party on New Year's Eve . But how long can you survive into the dawning of 2k13? Below are the best parties happening on Tuesday, New Year's Day -- how low can you go! (It's kind sad that we now only have one day a year that's like SF nightlife in the 90s, sigh.)
But first, here's the exact chill-before-thrill mix I want to hear at 7am rolling up to the venue with my girls, blunt smoke pouring from the cracked window:

MORNING GLORY 
Features: Hot queers, bedazzled club kids and dragged-out drag queens, leftover horny bears from the Bearracuda NYE party in the same venue, gorgeous early risers.
Music: Post-disco disco, acidy house, kiss-kiss techno with DJs Stanley Frank, Robert Jeffrey, Doc Sleep, Steve Fabus, Sergio Fedasz, P-Play, M*J*R, Trevor Sigler
4am-10am, $10. Beatbox, 314 11th St., SF.
BREAKFAST IN BED 
Features: Supperclub's athletic blend of acrobatic burlesquers, cool characters, old school partiers, and feather-bedecked smilers.
Music: Lovely, pumping soulful house and tech plus a dose of psychedelia with DJs David Harness, Galen, Rrooz, Andrew Phelan, Alain Octavo, Cosmic Selector, Michael Anthony, Meikee Magnetic, Marija Dunn
4am-?, $15-$20. Supperclub, 657 Harrison, SF.
NO WAY BACK 
Features: This party at Monarch was THE party last year, a blurred and delirious intersection of dancefloor mavens and fabulous personages (a few of whom had lost their shoes somewhere along the night's way, ahem.) Good times.
Music: Straight up house-y (and disco edit) goodness from special NYC guest Justin Vandervolgen, Solar, Conor, 40 Thieves, James Glass, Junior, Dewey Chan, Jdisco, Soft Soil.
6am-?, $10-$20. Monarch, 101 Sixth St., SF.
Features: Weekend mornings at the lovely Monroe in North Beach have become the new End Up for those of us into great music and meeting up with other adventurous souls. I was tickled pink to hear there's a New Year's Day party there -- it'll be cute-bananas.
Music: Techno! Lots of techno. I bet I know what huge name DJ will be the special surprise guest (ahem, Bee Lurridge?) -- but that person will have great backing from DJs Nikita, Rooz, Bo, Nikola Baytala, MossMoss, Pete Fraiser, and Francesco Signorile.
Features: Tons and tons of Burning Man fun, including a lot of runny neon mascara and sequined cowboy hats -- now even bigger since this party has moved to Mighty and taken over the whole block.
Music: Funky techno with a little acid-crunk craziness from the Space Cowboys camp DJs and friends.
6am-?, $15-$20. Mighty, 119 Utah, SF.
STOMPY + SUNSET 
Features: Starts at 2pm, so you'll get a bit of everything at this beloved party teaming up two legendary SF house crews at the well-patioed, great sounding Club Cocomo.
Music: Sooo yummy house with deep international flavor from special Mexican guest Daniel Maloso plus breakout local duo Tone of Arc and DJs Tasho, Solar, Deron, Galen, Sweet P, J-Bird
2pm-2am, $10-$20. Club Cocomo, 650 Indiana, SF.
Features: More kooky, cray-cray, superfunky Burning Man-based goodness from the infamous Brass Tax afterhours crew at this gonzo annual affair at Public Works.
Music: Funky house, alien techno, and straight-up funk from DJs JoeJoe, Ding Dong, Mace, Ernie Trevino, Haute Mess, Ethan Miller, MoPo, and TophOne
3pm-midnite, $5-$10. Public Works, 161 Erie, SF.
If you are still party-functional and looking for some awesome parties to go to around 11pm, might I suggest the bass-head Icee Hott DJs guesting at the ever-amazing High Fantasy at Aunt Charlie's  and the friendly, dance-crazed future bass shenanigans of Soundpieces at Monarch .
