New Year's Eve

The Ultimate Guide to New Year’s Eve in Downtown Sac

Katie Almazan

Step aside 2016, the new year is ready to make its grand entrance.

Why plan for the night when you can make a day of it!

Use our ULTIMATE NEW YEAR’S EVE GUIDE to bring joy to your companions and inspire FOMO in the friends who opted out.

1) Fuel Up: You have a full day of fun ahead so don’t skip the most important meal of the day. Mosey on down to the Firestone Public House for brunch between the hours of 9am-12pm. We won’t judge if you add some mimosas into the mix too.

2) Dress up: With a night that promises to be unforgettable, an outfit to match is a must! Snag a one-of-a-kind ensemble at YSJ Vintage that will catch eyes and maybe even score you a kiss at midnight (you know you were thinking it). They have something for both the ladies and gents.

3) Get Ready: Stock up on a few sweet treats that are sure to boost your energy during the long night ahead. Check out Andy’s Candy Apothecary and snag a few (or more) pocket-sized pick-me-ups.

4) Break time: Your outfits and snacks are queued, and now it is time to rest-up before the big night with a glass of sparkling wine and tapas at Downtown & Vine. A quick breather and some seriously drool- worthy appetizers will leave your stomach satisfied and your energy refueled for the night ahead.

5) Let’s go: We are almost there! Uber into Old Sac for the New Year’s Eve Sky Spectacular fireworks show at 9 p.m. There’s only one fireworks show this year, so don’t forget to take that infamous fireworks photo with all your friends at 9 pm!

6) Party Time: The night is still young and midnight is approaching. Catch a ride to the Park Lounge where glasses of champagne will be served and the NY Ball Drop will be projected on a large screen. Dance, socialize and give 2017 a huge smooch. Now you, my friend, have memories to replay for months to come. You’re welcome.
