2016 needs to end before it claims yet another of our legends – we’ve already lost Prince, David Bowie, Glenn Frye, Leonard Cohen, Muhammed Ali, John Glenn, Harper Lee, Gene Wilder….and now Florence Henderson AND Alan Thicke, two of our favorite TV Dads and Moms! Is nothing sacred?!
And what better way to console ourselves than to drink with wild abandon, eat amazing food and dance the night away? Well, if that’s not your bag, there are also a WHOLE bunch of other ways to while away the hours before 2017 including channeling your inner geek with Stan Lee, bowling, golfing, and playing hours of arcade games.
I put a few different sections below so you can pursue based on what’s tickling your fancy – fun activities, fancy-schmancy dinners, grand ballroom parties, and frisky bar scenes!
