NYE countdown: Eve of the Eve events
For those of you who'd rather skip New Year's Eve, 312 Dining Diva has come up with a few alternatives.
Here are a few great parties going on the night before NYE:
Eve of the Eve. Highsight's annual black-tie benefit is actually two parties in one: Classic takes place at the Santa Fe Building (224 S. Michigan Ave.) and is more of an intimate, sit-down dinner; while the Union Station (210 S. Canal St.) set attracts more than 2,000 revelers. It's one of the biggest benefits for Chicago's young professionals and tickets range $125-$140. Open bar, light appetizers, live music. Call 312-787-9824 for more information.
Industry Night at Krem. It may not be a dress-up affair at this Lincoln Park lounge, but hosts Ryan Brooks, Carlos R, and the Krem Sundays staff will certainly put you in a festive mood. Party includes deejays spinning, a hosted premium bar and delicious passed hors d’oeuvres provided by the club. 9pm-2am. $75. 1750 N. Clark St., 773-932-1750.
Sippin on Sunday. It's been going strong for more than 15 years, and this party just continues to get better. DJ World spins house, hip-hop and club beats for this upscale, urban professional crowd. Get there between 9-10pm and your admission is free. Green Dolphin Street (2200 N. Ashland Ave., 312-431-8801). $20 at door.
