Are we really at the end of the year already? Once the Christmas gifts are opened and put away and all is calm from the craziness of Christmas day, it’s time to make it even crazier by ringing in the new year.

New York New Years

We’re only a few days away from 2024 and if you haven’t started thinking about your plans yet, you might want to do that now.

If you’re looking to get off the couch and party at midnight, there are great places in New Jersey to visit, but you’ll need a reservation.


Not into the club scene? Why not a restaurant? Have a great evening with friends over dinner, drinks, live music and entertainment, and the countdown to midnight.
