Five Things to Do Before 2012

A list of five events to do on Dec. 31.

Are you going to miss 2011? Or can you not wait for 2012?

Either way, here are five things you should do on the last day of the year.


It might be cold, but it’s still beautiful. Come celebrate the season with a spectacular tour at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, led by BBC's trained Garden Guides at 1 p.m.

Palo Santo claims that New Year's Eve is when they serve their most “decadent feast,” a seven-course meal of seasonally inspired food, like wild seafood, sustainably raised meats, tropical fruit and greenmarket vegetables. Each dish will be paired with a wine carefully selected from their cellar. Then top the night off with a tasting of sweets and a champagne toast at midnight! 

Union Hall celebrates five years with $5 entry and $5 drink specials to ring in the New Year. DJ Lord Easy spins upstairs from 10 p.m. to 12 a.m., and Karaoke Killed The Cat will ring in the New Year. Come for the party and stay late for the chance to win a free iPad.

Want a fun and healthy option for celebrating New Year's Eve? Join the three-mile fun run in Prospect Park starting on the roadway at Ninth Street. Flip-top mittens to first 300 registrants. Glow necklace, hot chocolate and munchies to all! 

Ring in the New Year with live music, hot refreshments and fire works at Grand Army Plaza. Celebrations start at 11 p.m. and the fireworks begin at midnight.
