WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR THIS NEW YEARS EVE?
No need to stay awake until midnight, Sci-Tech Discovery Center is giving you the chance to see the ball (balloons) drop at noon! Stop by this Frisco favorite for face painting, hands-on science experiments, balloon twisters, spring-free trampolines, explosive stage shows and more.
WINE & DINE
8. WINE SQUARED
Charcuterie Boards are so last year…So, Denton’s Wine Squared is ringing in the new year with a Charcuterie Table. Yup, you read that right. An entire table filled with meats, cheeses, desserts and more. Plus, they’ll have wine, jazz tunes and glasses of bubbly to ring in the new year. Yes, please!
9. FIVE SIXTY
Dine in style with the best view in Dallas. This unique restaurant in Reunion Tower is serving a delectable six-course New Years Eve tasting menu for $165. It may seem a bit pricey, but trust me, the dinner and skyline views are worth it. Wine lover? Upgrade to a wine tasting for an additional $50. Pro Tip: Get your reservations ASAP—they’re filling up fast!
Last year, Funky Town’s very own Leon Bridges performed at New Year’s In The Funk, a soulful party held at a super-secret warehouse on the South Side (say that 5 times fast). Although the music lineup for 2019 hasn’t been announced yet, I’m sure that they’ll bring in another renowned artist for the party-goers to enjoy.
This year, you can head to Bourbon Street without leaving the DFW metroplex! The Gaylord Texan will have a New Orleans cocktail bar and live entertainment from Le Freak. Tickets range from $35-$3,500, so you can go all out, or just dip your toes in. The choice is yours!
Nothing says going all out on NYE quite like a Dallas hotel party. Grab tickets, a hotel room and all your friends, because you won’t want to miss out on The Statler’s modern-day re-creation of Truman Capote’s legendary 1966 “Party Of The Century”. The night will include late-night food stations and live entertainment by Graceland Ninjaz & DJ Michael Jerome!
