New Years Eve Events
So you survived the holidays. You painstakingly crawled through the trenches and battlefields of Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. You dodged the mortar blasts of life lessons and career paths from aunts and uncles of whom you’ve only met but a few times. You are a veteran of the T-Day Wednesday invasion of bars and subsequent Black Friday shopping onslaughts, and even the psychological warfare of screaming nieces and nephews on Christmas day.
You are now rewarded by one of the biggest party nights of the year. Some call it amateur night. Some think of it as one more year Dick Clark has escaped the clutches of death. Still others think of it as a great excuse to get all dressed up and ring in the New Year with a bottle of bubbly. Or Craft Beer. Or Cocktails. Or Wine.
The end of the year is winding down and so is your window of opportunity to reserve your tickets for the best New Years Eve parties in Philadelphia, as many events are selling out quickly!
Be sure to check the ticket and event pages, as many bars are offering discounts with local hotels so you can enjoy your New Years celebrations safely! From all of us at DrinkPhilly, we hope you enjoyed your holidays and we look forward to bringing you the best Philadelphia happy hours and specials in 2011, and years to come.
(more drink specials will be added as this month goes on so be sure to check back!)
