It's hard to believe, but it's almost 2011! If you haven't made plans yet to ring in the New Year, here are a few ideas for that special night out on the town in Hamilton County, Indiana.

Enjoy a special holiday meal at one of Hamilton County's locally owned restaurants, like Kelties in Westfield, Matteo's Ristorante Italiano in Noblesville, or Woody's Library in Carmel. Be sure to make reservations. Space is filling up fast. At Grille 39, you can dine from a special selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts while you listen to the jazz stylings of Blair Clark. Reservations are required. Enjoy an elegant dinner and dancing at the New Year's Eve Gala Celebration at The Mansion at Oak Hill. Five Easy Pieces will perform music from the 40s to today. It is easy to make your reservation. The cost is just $75 per person and includes dinner, a champagne toast at midnight and party favors. If you want an extended celebration, get the party started at the New Year's Eve Jam at the Hilton Garden Inn and stay until the morning! Dance the night away with Indy's best cover band Living Proof, and then sleep until check out at either the Hilton Garden Inn or the Hotel Indigo located next door. The $275 cost per couple reserves your hotel stay, and includes an open bar and complimentary appetizers. If you want to try something new, check out our newest partner, Alice's Restaurant in Arcadia. They are now taking reservations for New Year's Eve. (Alice's Catering also can provide you with all the food you need for your own at-home celebration.) Tell us what you will be doing to celebrate with family and friends. No matter what you choose, have a safe New Year's Eve and a Happy Hamilton County 2011!
