What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?
It's time to ring in the new year, and we've got eight ways for you to celebrate in Gwinnett.
"Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and auld lang syne?"
You've probably heard this classic song on a movie or TV show. Maybe you've even sung it yourself! It's meaning? Some say, "Auld Lang Syne is about old friends who have parted and meet again. To celebrate their long friendship, they share a drink together and reminisce of memories from long ago. The basic message is that we should not forget our old friends and should celebrate a reunion with them."
We love the idea of celebrating. And, we're glad Gwinnett's got so much to offer when it comes to New Year's Eve festivities. Here are eight ways you can celebrate.
Hear some rockin' tunes. Catch Reality Check at 37 Main in Buford. If you want to grab a bite to eat beforehand, Buford's got some great options, like Bare Bones, Aqua Terra, and Adam's Restaurant & Piano Bar.
Get some exercise. Join Family Promise of Gwinnett for the Flashlight 5K. The event starts after dark, so bring your flashlight (hence the name), and get ready to get rid of those extra holiday pounds.
Have a laugh. Atlanta Comedy Theater invites you to celebrate the new year with DEF Comedy Jam's Marvin Dixon. The night includes party favors and a champagne toast.
Take the kids to celebrate early. Stone Mountain Park is hosting an early New Year's Eve Celebration, because kids like to celebrate, too. They'll have an early countdown, costumed characters, music, dance-a-longs, fireworks and snow. What more could you ask for?
Enjoy dinner and dance. Hilton Atlanta Northeast is hosting their 8th Annual Atlanta New Year's Eve Dance Festival. This event will feature several DJs.
Put on your best mask. Attend a New Year's Eve Masquerade Ball at JVC Event Hall. The event includes a DJ, a dance floor and a chance to enjoy a true VIP experience.
Wear your best winter white. Tannery Row Ale House is hosting their Winter White New Year's Eve party. You can play casino-style games for charity and enjoy a complimentary champagne toast at midnight.
Drink some great wine. Chateau Elan will be celebrating New Year's Eve at the winery, and you can expect a three-course dinner, party favors and accommodations in this package for purchase.
