After a month filled with planning, preparation and parties, the final bash to cap off the year can seem like a final hurdle. In fact, in doing research for this article, we realize that you may have already waited too long to get tickets for the biggest events. You have to venture out into the rest of Maryland to see crabs and doughnuts descend. But luckily Baltimore has a few options that had some openings when we wrote this article. (In this case, one of them is not watching college football). Check out five New Year’s Eve happenings:
New Years Eve Shades and Suits at City Garage Baltimore Social usually brings you rec leagues like kickball and bocce. At the Kevin Plank-backed space for makers, they’re throwing a New Year’s Eve party this year. The event features all the usual fun stuff, like champagne and fancy food. And since it’s Baltimore Social, there will be plenty of games, and everyone gets a pair of sunglasses. This may be worth it to check out the space alone, which is an enormous former city bus garage in Port Covington that will soon house light manufacturing startups.
New Year’s Eve at Inner Harbor There’s always fireworks. Inner Harbor has a lot going on for the holidays, including an outdoor ice rink and fabulous decorations. On New Year’s Eve, party music will fill out the atmosphere. And the mayor is slated to show up to help count down to 2016. Then, fireworks from a pair of barges docked in the harbor will ensue.
New Year’s Eve Dinner and Lounge Party at Wit & Wisdom Since you have to eat to end the year, Chef Zach Mills is putting together a nine-course tasting menu to ring in the New Year. The fireworks mentioned above will still be visible from this spot’s harborside location. It also happens to be in the Four Seasons if you don’t feel like going home.
Bond Street Social New Year’s Eve Party We know that Fells Point will be a destination on Dec. 31. This party offers two of the neighborhood’s party spots at one event. Bond Street Social and Barcocina are teaming up to provide admission to both spots on one ticket. And they’ll have bites and champagne. Plus, that fireworks view.
New Year’s Eve with BROS The Baltimore Rock Opera Society gets the stage at the Remington spot on New Year’s Eve, and they’re bringing you to the future. A rock star that your kids’ kids will love is coming back, and bringing the spandex and glitter along for the ride. Plus, a Daft Punk cover band.
