We can’t believe it, but its time to wrap up and tie a bow on 2013. That also means its time to find your nearest party. If you’re not heading to the Inner Harbor to check out the fireworks or taking over a close friend’s rooftop deck for a chill, family-style event, here are your best bets (many close to Canton) for New Years 2013. There are no shortage of good times beyond this list, including a Great Gatsby-style Charm City Countdown. But to make things easier for you (as we at Stay Classy Canton love to do) here are a few parties to fit any budget.
Rest Easy. An unforgettable NYE is in your grasp:
Of Love and Regret, 9 p.m. to 3 a.m.:
There’s nothing better than ringing in the new year in the neighborhood, just a couple of blocks from home. If cabbing it to a big venue with hundreds of guests isn’t your thing, reserve a spot at a neighborhood hangout with epic bites and brews. Head to “Baltimore’s premier epicurean extravaganza featuring 3 floors of the finest libations and gourmet morsels.” Single tickets go for $120, $220 for couples, and $100 for parties of four or more. That gets you unlimited food and as many drinks as you choose until 3 a.m. To make your reservations, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Horse you Came in on Saloon, 7:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.:
If expensive tickets for open bars don’t really do it for you, head to the familiar Fell’s Point hangout, The Horse you Came in on Saloon. Pay just a $10 cover for a place to party until 4:30 a.m. With your $10 you get a buffet, champagne toast, and live music. No need to reserve in advance, just show up at the door and party your 2013 away, without breaking your budget.
New Years Eve Tunapalooza Party at the Horse with No Name, 9 p.m. to 3 a.m.:
Big Tuna Promotions is hosting a semi-private party at the Horse with No Name (formerly the Dark Horse), but they’re granting exclusive access to Canton residents and other readers of Stay Classy Canton to attend. They’re taking over the roomy first floor and offering premium open bar as well as a full buffet. Challenge your friends to all-you-can-play pool, arcades and skee ball as you watch the ball drop on the big screens. With $80 per person, this is one of the best all-inclusive deals in town, and since it is a semi-private event, you can be sure the venue won’t be too crowded. Reserve your spot directly through the event page.
Big Night Baltimore: Sheraton Baltimore City Center, 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.:
2013 has been a big year, so why not crash a big party? If lots of energy, lots of people, and lots of open bars is your thing, secure a ticket for Big Night Baltimore’s New Year’s Eve gala at the Sheraton. With your ticket, you’ll get themed party areas, copious buffet food, and the promise of no long lines at open bars. Dance the year away with 12 live bands and DJs as well as five dance floors. Tickets for the main event are on sale now for $109.99 and VIP is $189.99.
