New Year’s Eve Happenings

It is almost 2012, can you imagine another year has almost come to an end! For some of us this means quietly ushering in the New Year, making our own personal resolutions for a fresh start, maybe sharing a delicious meal with someone we love; and for others this means rocking in the New Year with a party and some live music and dancing. Whichever option best suits you, we have compiled a comprehensive listing of  New Year’s events throughout the cape sure to offer a little something for everyone!
