Forget the Weekend, It’s New Year’s Eve

Nice weekends finish last.

Ending the Year on a Crazy Note
WIN SOME

Ending the Year on a Crazy Note

Let’s see... masquerade masks, sparklers, elaborate costumes, a DJ and some dancing girls in fishnets. Yup, that sounds like the kind of Marie-Antoinette-meets-traveling-circus craziness you can expect at Winstons for NYE. Just remember, when you pop champagne, always do it away from the eyes.

A Five-Course Feast at Private | Social
PRIVATE PRACTICE

A Five-Course Feast at Private | Social

New Year’s Eve is all about options. Here, you’ve got two. Choose the Private side for a five-course dinner (think Peking duck with foie gras ravioli.) Or stick to the Social side for cocktails, champagne and a little live jazz. There’s no wrong answer. Just a more right one.

Dinner with a Side of Fireworks
VIEW POINT

Dinner with a Side of Fireworks

Way up in the sky, there’s a party with a DJ, Korean short ribs and cocktails. Sounds like Five Sixty’s got a solid NYE lineup again. But oh, there’s more. Around midnight, grab some champagne and a window seat for a view of the Victory Park fireworks show. It’s... glorious.

Dec 31, 9pm-1am, $150, Five Sixty at Reunion Tower, 300 Reunion Blvd, 214-741-5560

End the Year in a Fashion Gallery
FIG DEAL

End the Year in a Fashion Gallery

Two words: open bar. Forty-one more words: FIG’s NYE party promises plenty to drink, hors d’oeuvres and a champagne toast at midnight. Throw in some video mixes by DJ Humble and a room stocked with really attractive people and, well... we know, we had you at open bar.

Tuesday
Beginning 2013 with Brunch
THE MORNING AFTER

Beginning 2013 with Brunch

Resolutions are easy. Yup, no problem keeping those. Well, assuming they’re all brunch-related again like last year. So you’ll start 2013 with a victory when you head to the Mansion. They’ve got Bloody Marys, mimosas, benedict-y things... all the big ones. You’d hate to start the year on an empty stomach.

Jan 1, 11:30am-2:30pm, $65, Rosewood Mansion, 2821 Turtle Creek Blvd, 214-559-2100
