Get that group text started and keep reading so you can nail down your plans before you end up scrambling for tickets.

Toast ’18 @ The Pennsylvanian

Open bar admission is an easy $75 so you can leave your wallet at home and drink top-shelf local spirits all night.

Pittsburgh’s dining scene has grown even further in 2016 and to celebrate, Smallman Galley is putting on a five-course meal prepared by Smallman Galley chefs for $155. Your ticket also includes wine pairings and a glass of bubbly. If you want to keep the party going (or just want to join in after), from 10pm to 1am they are offering all-you-can-drink Pittsburgh craft beers for $75 (or $50 if you add your ticket to dinner). For those not so into beer (we won’t hold it against you), there’s a cash bar as well.

For the past 23 years, Pittsburghers have gathered in the Cultural District to meander through theaters, galleries, and the city streets on New Year’s Eve. There’s live music, dance, magic shows, a parade, kids activities, and not one, but two fireworks displays. The entire family is encouraged to attend First Night and tickets are only $10 (kids five and under are free!). If you haven’t been before, make this the year.
