New Year’s Eve 2020: Dinners, Brunch & Drink Specials

Like everything else in 2020, New Year’s Eve is going to be different.

Although, it’s sort of the same because certain local restaurants and businesses are celebrating any which way they can. Whether it be a fancy dinner, a delicious brunch to get the day started, or some incredible drink specials, there may be something out there that’ll catch your attention.

So, no matter how you decide to welcome in 2021, try to do it locally. Many places are open, but here are a few that are offering something special for the holiday.
