    Honey Boo Boo, 1; Mayans, 0. Despite the fears, predictions, and doomlust that hung over us for most of 2012, the world as we know it continues, and we have a 2013 full of tomorrows to look forward to. Thus, we should party. Inside this handy guide to New Year’s Eve, you can find our picks for the best goings-on around town — both in and out of the First Night umbrella. And since it’s hard to know where we’re going in these uncertain times, we’ve even included a map. From all of us here at the Globe, apocalypse-shmapocalypse, and Happy New Year!
