New Year's Eve party packages on LI

New Year's Eve festivities

New Year's Eve is always a top night to cut loose -- and being that it's also the last night of the year, it's the final chance to have some fun before 2012 is done. If you're looking to make reservations for an NYE event where a good meal is to be paired with good times, here are some spots with special menus and festivities that will party right into 2013. --Ian J.
