But once the presents are open and the Christmas hangover begins, it's time to get serious about nailing down your New Year's Eve plans.
One of the biggest values in the area is at The Newport Syndicate (18 E. 5th St., Newport - 859-491-8900). I have been and am planning on being there this year as well. It's bar none, the most fun, low-maintenance event you can plan.
There's ample parking and a cheap ride share if you plan on leaving your car.

HINT: The venue always sells out and most people start to get serious about their New Year's Eve plans the day after Christmas. Beat them to the punch and book this now.
HINT: I've heard that the unveiling of a new speakeasy-type restaurant will occur this night. Leave a comment if you want to know the password to get in ;)
