The last night of the year brings many options. You could spend it with family in an alcohol-free setting. Maybe you want to go to a bar, but need to know what kind of cover you should expect to pay and who's got the best cash-filled balloon drop. To you, New Year's could be eating an extravagant meal. Or, if you've got that perfect glittery dress in the closet, you're going to need to show it off at one of the evening's biggest parties.
The City Paper is helping make your New Year's Eve planning simple with our complete list of events. We've organized the events by Eat (dinners), Drink (bars), and Be Merry (parties, and bars with events).
The new year is around the corner — as in two days away — and we’ve got a few resolutions in mind. For some of you, celebrating New Year’s Eve means savoring the last few hours of the best year of your lives. For others, it means counting down the seconds to a fresh start. — Mia Mendez
Many people find the New Year's Eve kiss awkward. So why bother stressing over it? Instead, worry about reservations. That's our biggest concern this time of year. — Kinsey Gidick
Sure, there's plenty of fun to be had at open-bar parties with $80 covers this New Year's Eve, but if your wallet's lookin' a little on the pitiful side, you can still have a memorable night complete with killer live tunes. — Kelly Rae Smith
