To-DosLetter: New Year's Eve To-Dos!

Stephanie's Just Hangin' Around!

 New Year's Eve To-Dos! 


As the year draws to a close, a huge question lingers: What are we going To-Do for New Year's Eve?!?!  Well, I'm dropping in a little early to give you a heads-up on what we already have uploaded.  Whether you want to be in the thick of things, smack dab in the city, chilling with a glass of Champagne or literally laughing that Champagne out of your mouth - we have plenty of options!

New Years Eve Old School Mayhem f/ The Hot Mix5 and The Chosen Few: If you want to be in the thick of it, this To-Do at Navy Pier is for you! They have  parking covered, a place for you to crash if you drink too much, and while I wasn't a Chicagoan in The Chosen Few/Hot Mix 5 days, I know enough to know that they have the music covered, too! As with the Chosen Few picnic, expect a mature crowd that knows how to get down, but also knows how to behave!

 New Years Eve 2012 Salsa Tropical Blowout! Alhambra Palace is the place to be for live music by Orquesta Nabori, a Champagne toast and DJs spinning tropical tunes. This spacious venue ought to provide plenty of room for you to get your Salsa on! Dinner packages are also available! $35-175

Cirque De' Exquisite 2012 (I don't spell it, I just report it!): Laser light show, indoor waterfall, Miami-style cabanas, state of the art sound system, river front view and private glass VIP area will combine to make this Club Net 360 party quite the swanky To-Do! Of course, they selected one of the hottest venues in Chicago - the River East Art Center! $100-1,000

New Year's EveNYE Golden 2012 The Movemakers, the Influence Group and enFULLAffect Marketing have joined forces to bring you this epicurean delight, with cuisine prepared by Chef Amuse Bouche at China Grill (Hard Rock Hotel)! Come for the food, stay for the party! Dinner packages: 6-course dinner and party for two, $200; Without party, $150. Party Package: Cash bar, party favors and Hors d'Ouevres, $40 (Early Bird). VIP packages available.

Terisa Griffin Presents "A New Year's Eve Mardi Gras Bash" The "Empress of Soul" is guaranteed to make your ears happy and, with a different drink special every hour and New Orleans-Style cuisine, your taste buds won't be left out of the party! $100

Red Rising - New Years Eve Party f/ Black Slang! Black Slang, featuring Corey Wilkes is HOT and the intimate space of Red Kiva will make things even HOTTER! The price includes a champagne toast, chocolate truffle and a free gift bag. $50
