What to Do This Weekend in Dallas: New Year's Eve Edition

If you're reading this, it is likely that you have been charged with planning a New Year's weekend gathering out on the town. The people who entrusted you with this responsibility are kind, wonderful people whom you feel lucky enough to call your friends. It's funny, then, how your friends decided you were best equipped to sort through 300 Facebook event listings in order to identify the best event in which your group should partake. We feel you, planners. That's why we've compiled a little list — just five events in all — that promise good drinks, enough food to keep you upright and, of course, good times.


*****

Martin House's event kicks off early in the evening, concluding in plenty of time to allow your party to make its way to another venue for things like counting down, kissing and popping corks. Enjoy four pints or eight half-pours for $15 as part of Martin's New Year's Eve extravaganza. The evening's beer list sounds celebratory, indeed, including Imperial Horchata Rice Lager, Champagne beer, kombucha beer and a cherry Salty Lady firkin.
