I've spent it at a friend's house playing board games and drinking; I've been at karaoke bars and rang in the New Year singing my favorite tunes; I've even just stayed home and watched movies and sipped champagne with my husband.

Do I stay awake until midnight every time? Well, that depends...if I'm home, sometimes I just rest my eyes a little bit until it's time to watch the ball drop.

For those of you 21 years and older, Lansing Brewing Company wants you to "come dressed to impress" for their annual New Year's Eve bash. The theme is "Winter Ball" decor, which reminds me of winter formal themes from high school, except this is an adult-only event. There's going to be "champagne jello shots, glittery drink specials", and the release of their annual Ball Dropper beer.
