1. Put on your most fabulous dress or bowtie and dine at one of downtown’s finest restaurants. We just love Roaring Fork, Uchi and Chez Nous…Word to the wise, just make sure you check if the restaurant has a set menu before making reservations, so there are no surprises on the bill or the taste buds.
2. Don’t forget about the kiddos! Austin’s New Year is a free event on Auditorium Shores. This alcohol-free family friendly festivity showcases Austin’s diverse artistic community through art, films and live music.  A few of the great Austin favorite bands and performers you might catch include Joe McDermott, Lavelle White, Nizami and Vitera!  This fun event ends with a fireworks finale right on Auditorium Shores, immediately after Carolyn Wonderland’s set on the mainstage.  Expect downtown road closures and a big crowd for this annual event.
3. Make sure to checkout Republic Live’s NYE 2012! It is Austin’s newest concert and event venue. It’s located in the warehouse district and holds 750+ people! There will be a massive balloon drop, confetti explosion, party favors and surprise performers. A great spot to checkout their killer sound and lighting systems with Top 40, Dance, and Hip Hop music.
4. Host a dinner party! Provide a fabulous four-course dinner or have everyone bring a dish. Perfect for those looking for a quieter evening…But still looking to party with friends. Need help planning *any time of the year*? The Simplifiers are always just a ring away at 512-695-7744!
5. Looking for something swanky to do?  Make it an all night affair and book a package with Intercontinental Hotel. “The package includes overnight accommodations and breakfast buffet for two each morning, as well as a reserved table for two for the New Years Eve Party in Stephen F’s Bar.

9. Make it a night in with the family. Create memories with the kiddos or just you and your hubby. We know there are TONS of things to do in Austin…But it’s okay to stay in for a fabulous dinner at home complete with home movies and board games. Pop the bubbly at midnight and give your kiddos some sparkling grape juice. If you’re brave, give them little poppers to ring in the New Year!
10. And of course there is always 6th Street…But venture out only if you dare!
…plus, a bonus tip for the geek inside all of us:  Pinballz Arcade is having a NYE party from 9pm-2am, with free beer provided by Independence Brewery for those 21+.  They have over 200+ pinball machines, plus all the cool arcade games from your childhood to have you running around like a little schoolgirl with a red Dixie cup full of tokens and a smile.  Black Knight 2000, Twilight Zone, Theatre of Magic, oh my!!!  More details on their kickass shindig here!
