There is no doubt that the most popular way to ring in the New Year is amongst hundreds of partygoers at the hottest nightclubs or out in the streets watching another year pass by at your local outdoor celebration, like Underground Atlanta’s popular Peach Drop New Year’s Eve festivities. However, there are other ways to ring in a New Year and the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group is hoping that you’ll decide to spend the evening with them in a quieter, but still highly enjoyable holiday celebration topped off with delicious food.
Ringing in a new year is all about starting fresh and embarking on new experiences to determine just how productive your year will turn out to be.
