Entertainment: How Are You Bringing in the New Year?


Sometimes planning for the perfect New Year’s Eve outing can be a little difficult. Where to go? Who to go with? What to wear? Better yet, how many layers to wear with NYE temperatures dropping into the the 30s? While we can’t offer wardrobe suggestions (other than suggesting a warm and cozy coat) or which of your friends you should bring along, we do have a few NYE party picks. If you’re still not quite sure how you’ll be bringing in 2015 – no worries. Here’s a few tips to get your New Year’s Eve celebration underway.
