New Year's Eve

I know this seems a little early asking this question. But, my DH and I always wait till the last moment planning something and end up doing nothing. Does anyone know of any even or anything you usually do. We usually just drink a bottle of champagne and watch the ball drop. I am looking for something a little more fun.

    We have gone to a black and white play at the Eisseman Center in Richardson.  They are doing another one this year.  Their pretty funny and it's really cool to see them do a whole play in black and white.

    Like Julie said there are quite a few events you can go to. Once it gets closer people start sending emails out on them. I heard to get in early. The parties get very expensive. Do you know what kind of party you want to go to or how much you want to spend?

    I'll be in India this year.. sorry bragging! I'm just super excited for my trip

    My FI normally works on NYE... traditionally, we don't do anything. 

    1.  Way too many drunk people out there.
    2.  Things are WAY more expensive than normal - and more packed.
    3.  Babysitting = non-existant on NYE

    Guidelive.com usually has a listing of things but as PP mentioned, they can get costly.

    you might check out big d nye (http://www.bigdnye.com/) - its a big party held in victory plaza, free and open to the public with bands, fireworks, etc - they required wrist bands last year, but aren't this year so it should be relatively easy to get into

    *sigh* same here.  We usually end up doing nothing or something very lame.  I wanted to go to the Library bar and spend the night at the Melrose this year, but we're doing that next weekend for Ben's birthday instead.  So we'll probably end up doing our usual nothing.

    I've also always wanted to go to The Grapevine--which is the bar where Ben and I met.  I've heard it's really fun.

    We have gone to the Stars game the past two years, and then attend the Big D NYE part on the plaza.  It is lots of fun!

    I just want to do something fun and maybe not a little to crazy. I forgot about the big D and stars game. DH plays and loves hockey, so he will probably will be down for that.

    Where does he play?  My DH used to play in Euless, but now is on a D leage team on Friday's in Farmers Branch.

    I had no idea people played hockey in Dallas until I met him.

    He use to play in a B league in Richardson and Farmers Branch. Right now he is subing on a C league in Frisco because he had crazy work hours. I didn't know it was such a big deal until I meant him. He played for UNT, so a lot of his friends are in hockey as well. I have come to appreciate the game and actually learn the rules. He is originally from Wisconsin, so that is where he started. But, Dallas is a big hockey area, no figure.

    The only place I've gone 'out' to on NYE in Dallas was Zen Bar in Addison. It was a $50 cover, but you got unlimited drinks all night, including top shelf liquors. If your intention is to get trashed, that would be the way to go. In my lame older years, we just stay at home, invite friends over and play card/trivia games with lots-o-wine and have a cooking party.
    I've heard of hotels selling room packages that include admission to a big party in their ballroom with live bands, but I'm not sure who does it around here.

    Check out www.visitdallas.com after the 10th. I got an email from them today asking for any NYE specials from venues that they'll be posting next weekend.

    I'm not so good with the advice... Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?

    I've always wanted to do something special and have a BIG NYE. Sadly, we never do anything. Everything is so expensive. We normally good snacky stuff and play games or SNES! Yes, I went there :)
