You know 2019 is going to be a good year because no one posted that “new year, new me” B.S. That’s not all, though. Even the events are getting better and better. If you thought you maxed out on the parties, the concerts, film screenings, or group dialogues, think again. January’s here to make its mark on your calendars, and we at Tip n’ Tag want to make sure of it.
