New Year's Eve in Dallas

I know…I know… Christmas hasn’t even come and already I am bringing up New Year’s Eve. But if you have ever tried making reservations to a big party or restaurant at the last minute you know the importance of planning your new year’s eve night out. Now if you are planning on sitting on the couch and watching the ball drop on tv, then congratulations your planning is done. However if you are planning on venturing out into the night you might want to start putting together your plans now. I have posted a great guide to some of the bigger parties going on throughout Dallas and Fort Worth this New Year’s Eve.

Have you made plans yet for New Year’s Eve? Here are some suggestions to help you ring in the New Year. Some celebrations are elegant sit-down dinners and some are on-your-feet-dancing parties. Some are some combination of the two. There are also a couple of non-traditional ways to celebrate with the entire family — like driving through Prairie Lights on its closing night or Dallas Stars hockey game. Make plans now before the venues get too crowded.
