Catch Billy Joel

Is there a better way to ring in the new year than with the Piano Man himself? Nope, there certainly isn’t. We’re talking about Billy Joel, of course, and his annual New Year’s Eve concert at the BB&T Center. He’s been kicking around in our neck of the woods since 2015 and we couldn’t be more excited to catch him this year.

Tickets can get expensive (we saw one package going for $1,500!), so make sure to snag yours today. We’ll see you there!

Get a Taste of Paris at Moulin Rouge Paris NYE 2018

Want to get a taste of the City of Light in South Florida? Then you’re going to want to head over to Marion in Brickell for their Moulin Rouge New Year’s Eve party. Self-described as a night of “opulence, desire, and champagne” this is one party you’re not going to want to miss.

The party starts at 7 P.M., and continues until 4 in the morning. There is a strict dress code, so make sure to look as snazzy as possible. Open bar tickets are $190 online and dinner reservations range from $110 to $250.
