Weekend Showcase: Ways to celebrate the new year
If you're still wondering how to welcome in the new year, here are some ideas from around the northwest metro.

Dave and Buster's in Maple Grove

In Maple Grove, Dave & Buster's is offering up some family friendly fun with a New Year's Eve event that runs from
5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

"We've got a full appetizer buffet, a chocolate fondue dipping station, unlimited soda," said Dave and Buster's Ashley Rugland. "We've got a twenty five dollar power card for everybody to play with."

Maple Grove Community Center

There's another family friendly event happening at the Maple Grove Community Center. It's the New Year's Eve Party 2016 on Saturday evening. The music of "Jack and Kitty" will get the whole family dancing. There's also swimming, skating, inflatables and a balloon drop at 9:45 p.m. to celebrate the entrance of 2017.

Eastman Nature Center in Dayton

If you're looking for a way to spend some time outdoors this New Year's Eve, the Three Rivers Park District's Eastman Nature Center in Dayton has just the ticket.  

"Saturday the plan is to take people for a hike where you can just kind of reflect and think about your year, what you enjoyed, and think about what you want for 2017. Then come back for a bonfire," said Brandon Baker, interpretive naturalist at the Eastman Nature Center.

Wicked Wort in Robbinsdale

In Robbinsdale, Wicked Wort Brewery Company is throwing a New Year's Eve masquerade ball

"It's going to be awesome," said Steve Carlyle of Wicked Wort. "We got another beer we're putting on: our chocolate stout specially for New Years Eve, and it's just going to be a big bash. I think we've got Nona Rosa's coming in to do some catering."

Nona Rosa's in Robbinsdale

Nona Rosa's is offering a delicious way to ring in the new year.

"The Italian love of Nona is felt in every bite," said Tina Suglia of Nona Rosa's. "We definitely work hard to create specials and features that are unique to our menu and not the usual fare that you get every other day at Nona Rosa's."

Elks Lodge in Brooklyn Park

The Brooklyn Park Elks Lodge is offering a night of improv comedy with the Stagebenders and special guest Brooklyn Park's own Joe Tanner.

"I believe it's the first time they've had comedy there," said Tanner. "It's designed to appeal to the 30 to 60 year old group where they would come out have some drinks, have some dinner and have a good time and have some fairly clean comedy."

Tickets can either include dinner or just the show.
