Here Are 63 Ways To Ring In The New Year In North Texas.

It's time, once again, to put an exclamation point on the year that was. And fortunately, whether you're looking to dance, eat, laugh, spend way too much on bottle service, or just to get more dolled up than usual, there's a place in town for you to do just that.

Hell, even if you're looking for something a little more low key or for a place where you can stay the night and not be forced to share the road with the Amateur Night All-Stars, there are even options in that regard.

The point is, no matter your poison, North Texas has got you covered. Just remember to be safe out there, kids. Oh, and look out for your friends, too. For the part of the night after the bars closed is dark and full of terrors.
