Ring in the New Year at the right party. Here are some top celebrations in Chicago to choose from.
Eve of the Eve
8 p.m.-1 a.m.
Bridging the gap between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, the annual swanky black-tie-optional benefit for High Sight’s scholarship program is expected to bring out more than 2,000 revelers to mingle over appetizers and drinks as well as dance along to tunes from Pat McKillen and South of 80. The bash also includes a cash raffle, silent auction and an after-party at River North club Cuvee. www.highsight.org
