New Year's Eve in the North Shore

Looking for something fun to do locally on New Year's Eve? Patch has you covered.

You've recovered from a massive Christmas dinner, nursed the egg nog hangover and reprogrammed all of your new electronics since the holiday weekend.

Now it's time to set your sights on how you're going to ring in the New Year.

OnMilwaukee has a comprehensive New Year's Eve bar guide with a slew of venues to watch the ball drop, including the Milwaukee Art Museum's sold-out celebration complete with live music, go-go dancers and an open bar (you can still signup for a waitlist) or Café Hollander on Downer Avenue's New Biers Eve celebration, where they will release a series of rare biers every hour on the hour, from 8 p.m. to close. 

But, if you're looking from some more local ideas, Patch is here to help.
