New Year’s Eve 2018: Parties, Concerts & Other Ways to Ring in the New Year in NYC

New Year’s Eve 2018: Parties, Concerts & Other Ways to Ring in the New Year in NYC


We can’t believe that New Year’s Eve 2018 is just around the corner. 2017 has been pretty painful. Can 2018 be any worse? We’ve got those midterms coming up in November, so there’s that to look forward to. Fingers-crossed. The best thing to do at this point is to not look back, but rather embrace the calendar change. Find something awesome to do to ring in the new. If you happen to be in New York City, we’ve started to assemble our short list. And, kiddos, remember this year you can actually dance your heart out wherever you end up, as that pesky Cabaret Law has been repealed. We recommend you start planning now though, some things are already sold out.
