    I bet I know where Wings! wants to go for NYE? Rhymes with Tooters?

  • Gavin

    Red’s Table has a nice NYE promo as well. I think it’s $69 for a multi course menu. Nothing descriptive on their site unfortunately.

    • Karen Goff

      Yes. Forgot that one. Thanks for the reminder.

    For what it’s worth, I went to the Clyde’s event last year and it was terrible. They had mediocre liquor and food that I could have bought from the frozen food isle at Safeway. The crowd was kind of lame (like drunken HR manager making a fool out of herself on the dance floor lame.)

  • John Lovaas

    The Montmartre Cafe usually has a special, festive New Years Eve dinner and entertainment. We enjoyed it last year.
    The setting on Lake Anne is lovely.

    If you’re going to Cyldes, make sure to wear your Kevlar vest. Don’t want to get stabbed
