This Friday night, restaurants will be packed, the champagne will be flowing, and some drunk schmuck will land himself in the emergency room after launching fireworks in his yard. Yes, New Year's Eve is upon us, and if you haven't made plans, well, your options are limited. You could reserve seating for the early bird special, or you could impress your better half with a fancy meal you prepared yourself. Try heading to Central Market Friday for the Make and Take Home New Year's Eve Dinner for Two class, where you'll prepare a three-course dinner including shrimp cocktails, beef tenderloin and creme brulee. The best part is you'll take home portions for you and a date. A dinner like this will get you more than a midnight kiss. The class is 1 p.m. at Central Market, 5750 E. Lovers Lane. For reservations, call 214-361-5754.
