There’s nothing like making the drive through the winding roads and over the rolling California hills to the little roadhouse of Rancho Nicasio. So when you’re headed out to boogie the year away by fooling around and falling in love to Elvin Bishop, remember to take a look around at the last slice of the coast you’ll see in the year 2010. Likewise, there’s nothing like driving back home from the cozy little club, so make sure you don’t veer off the road and into the lake at the cheese factory. Drink sparingly and chug that coffee after partying ’til the cows come home on Thursday, Dec. 30, at Rancho Nicasio. Town Square, Nicasio. 8:30pm. $20–$25. 415.662.2219.
