For 15 years Tracy Holt has been hosting a “New Year’s Eve All Over Again” party. “A lot of people don’t get a chance to go out on New Year’s Eve, many go to church or they just stay home where it is safe,” says Holt.
When she was living in New York she started having the New Year’s bash at the end of January and when she moved to Pittsburgh 10 years ago she continued the tradition. On Jan. 28, upstairs at Tracy’s Place in Homestead, she and her husband, Fred Fox, hosted a party complete with noise makers, hats, New Year’s decorations and a pre-taped ball drop from Times Square that dropped right at midnight.

The crowd danced, dined, had a great time and then right at the stroke of midnight a special guest appeared—actor, director and voice-over artist Charlie Murphy.
Some people know him as Eddie Murphy’s brother, but he is also well known for his roles on “Chappelle’s Show,” “CB4,” “King’s Ransom” and “Love That Girl.”
We asked Murphy what was his favorite role. He said, “The one I’m playing right now, just being me.” Murphy partied well into the night and enjoyed the comfortable atmosphere of Tracy’s Place. Murphy was wrapping up an appearance at the Pittsburgh Improv.
