How to meet people and make friends at a party

I'm going to show up at a new year's eve party by myself. It'll be a huge party, and I will only know one person, who'll probably be too busy to talk to me all night.

I have no problem finding and dating women. I think I'm good looking, and I'm relatively good with women. However, at this party I'm mostly just interested in getting to know people and possibly making friends. I'm not interested in hooking up.
So, I don't need pickup lines or ways to meet girls. I just need ways to start conversations with strangers (men and women), in hope of making friends or just having interesting discussions.
And I need that without looking weird (and also without drinking heavily). I feel weird enough just by showing up alone. How do I avoid sitting/standing by myself, and what's the best way to meet new people. The people there will probably be among friends.
