Pro Tip for getting the most out of your New Year’s Eve fun. Plan the end of your night before you start! Get a hotel room, designate a driver, tuck away some emergency money for a cab, leave your car at home and find alternate transportation to your first location. Parking will be a hassle, and downtown streets are a nightmare anyway. Make sure you have yummy brunch foods and bloody mary supplies for the next day, or make your reservations at your favorite restaurant now. Celebrate in style, but also party like an adult.
See you all in 2019
