    With lots of New Year’s Eve concerts and events dropping like flies thanks to our new enemy, the Omicron variant of COVID-19, there’s a good chance you’ll be spending the evening at home with a very limited number of vaccinated, boosted, and negative-tested companions. But don’t fear: There’s still some New Year’s gatherings you can attend remotely — not on Zoom — that’ll still make ringing in 2022 fun.
