As New Year’s Eve approaches, many of us are wrestling with our options…stay home by a fire and watch the ball drop OR go out in style and indulge in a special NYE event? If you opt for the later, I can tell you about a few of your NYE options!
Showroom would like to help you find the perfect NYE attire for any event. Stop in and try new holiday dresses and jewelry!
For a glamorous, showy celebration: A Masked Affair at the Muse Event Center
The recently-renovated Muse Event Center is hosting a very special “once in a lifetime” kind of event. The splashy event space opens it’s doors at 8pm and guests are encouraged to “dress to impress” in their finest party attire, including a mysterious mask! Muse promises thumping music, cocktails, beautiful decor, and even aerialists spinning high above!
GA Tickets are $35, but if you are interested in a private entrance, lounge, and butler-passed hors d’ouevres and champagne then consider the VIP treatment for $75. There’s even the possibility of reserving bottle service for you and your guests.
For a romantic, jazzy night out: Carole Martin at the Artist’s Quarter
The Artist’s Quarter is a hot underground jazz club in St. Paul that has featured many renowned Jazz musicians to date. This marks their 19th annual NYE show, which is fairly bittersweet, as the AQ will be permanently closing it’s doors afterwards. Carole Martin has a deep history at the AQ, making her the ideal artist to help them go out with a bang. Martin is described as a “classic torch singer” that very deeply attaches herself to lyrics. If you are a Jazz enthusiast, don’t miss this event!
The show starts at 9pm and tickets are $65/each. Be sure to buy ahead of time!
For a special culinary experience: Prix Fixe menu at Borough & Parlour
Borough has been highly reviewed by local foodies, and this NYE Borough is welcoming you to join-in on their version of a NYE celebration- a 5 course Prix Fix Tasting menu! What a fantastic excuse to visit the intimate restaurant!
All five courses are unique and specially crafted to entertain the most experienced of palettes! Enjoy the menu for $65/each, but consider adding the wine pairings for an additional $30. In my opinion, wine is always a great enhancement. I strongly recommend making a reservation!
Whichever event you decide to attend, do it safely. Don’t drink and drive. Metro Transit will again be offering FREE RIDES on NYE starting at 6pm.
