New Year's Eve in the River District
Holidays, Winter

What are you doing New Year's Eve? If you don’t have tickets to an event yet make sure to check out our events listings. You may not be able to go to a crowded venue but there are some online events you can still participate in.

So, you’ve decided to go out with a few close friends or family members. Maybe it’s been a while since you’ve spent an evening dressed up and out in public. Do you forget what it’s like? Don’t worry the River District has everything you need to get ready to go out.

Tame that mane at one of the many salons and spas. Located in the business directory under Hair Care & Esthetic Services you will find a full list with contact information so you will be able to find an available appointment. If you are one of the lucky ones who manages an appointment on New Year’s Eve you can not only get a cut but also a style and if they offer the service maybe even makeup application. Save yourself the headache and let a River District business take care of you.

Now that you’ve decided to go into public you may want to upgrade the track pants you’ve been wearing for the last 2 weeks without washing. It's ok the River District has a few places where you can find new track pants and if you are feeling really fancy maybe a pair of pants with a fly. The good news is you won’t have to spend a ton of time running around town to find the perfect outfit since the River District offers everything you may need including the on-trend accessories to update that LBD.

Looking killer with your new do and that outfit that makes you feel like a million bucks. There is no need to sit around the house waiting for your event to start. Grab your crew and head down to a River District restaurant to fill your stomach with some amazing food and drink to start the party off right. Plan and get a reservation since New Year’s Eve tends to be pretty busy and capacities have been lowered.

Are you hosting an event at your place? Don’t worry about cooking for your group. Many River District restaurants offer take-out options, and some businesses even have pre-frozen options that you can buy in advance so the day of your event all you have to do is heat and serve. Spruce up your house with a few new or new to you pieces from local décor shops, you can even find special New Year’s Eve décor for just a couple of dollars.

You’re going to a close friend’s house, and you don’t know what to bring. Food is always a great option, some cheese, bread, or some nice sweets to share, a bouquet of flowers or a small piece of home décor all make wonderful host gifts and would make you a guest that gets invited back.

Maybe this isn’t the year you’re going to be social, and you are going to stay home. There is nothing wrong with that in fact going to bed early and greeting the new year well-rested is special all on its own. Treat yourself to a nice new pair of pajamas and slippers. Get yourself a few of your favourite snacks. Cozy up on the couch, binge-watch your favourite show, and go to bed at 9 p.m. because honestly you can watch a recording of the ball drop online at any time and no one will judge.

Happy New Year from the River District.
