The end of the year is the perfect time to reflect on the changes we've seen this year, it's also cause for celebration as we embark on a new year. Those looking to celebrate out on the town have no shortage of quality local options. A partial list appears below. Please feel free to add any events in the comments, as I'm sure I have inadvertently omitted some.
