HOUSTON, TX - A popular website is now saying Houston has no balls… to drop.   The year 2016 is almost here and WalletHub.com has ranked the Bayou City number 50 in a list of the best and worst towns to celebrate New Year's Eve.

To make the list, this website took into consideration entertainment options, costs and walkability.  But who cares?  They know nothing about Houston.  On December 31, even Tranquility Park is turning into a crazy love shack.

"The B-52s will be our headliners on New Year's Eve, prior to the fireworks at midnight," said Debbi Elliott-Griffith, Division Manager at the Mayor's Office of Special Events.   "Prior to that we're gonna have performances at the Wortham Theater Center, the Alley Theatre; the Hard Rock Cafe will also have an outdoor concert stage, and then in Jones Plaza we're gonna have the kids countdown."

And then you have parties in Midtown, Uptown, Downtown, Washington Ave., the Heights, you name it… your designated driver will have plenty of places to take you.

"There's nowhere triller to be than my event," said hip hop legend Bun B.  "I've got the trillest thing going on in New Year's Eve, and that's at the Q: 2901 Fannin St.  We got two stories of trillness baby. We got tables, sections that if you guys want to come by yourselves and hang out we got that for you, too."

So, there you go.  Are you listening WalletHub.com?  On New Year's Eve, Houston is the place where it's at.

"Dispel any rumors about us being number 50," said 97.9 The Box's DJ GT, who will be performing along with Bun B and other artists at the Q.  "No.  Not true.  We should be top five.  Right after New York… right after the ball drops in New York, Houston should be probably number two."

You see?  We got you covered.
