Things To Do- Week of 12/17

Next week's list will be smaller because I want to focus a little more on my family that is coming in town. Note, I added a list of NYE Parties I've found at putting that last at the bottom because if you're anything like me you like to plan ahead. My only suggestion would be to stay safe, have fun, and if anything a fun night at home is always a great choice to ring in the new year. They'll be listed by venue and alphabetical. I'll be adding more to the list next week too.
