New Years Eve in Dumbo

New Years Eve Dumbo 2016

Happy holidays from!

It’s about that time again, to say goodbye to 2015 and look forward to a new year. Do you have plans for New Years Eve yet? It’s your last chance to party before you start on those New Years resolutions of abstinence, exercise, and frugality. (Which, if you’re like most people, you will give up on in a week and a half.)

Not surprisingly, there’s plenty to do right here in Dumbo on the big night. Following are some of the many parties and events happening under the bridges on New Years Eve 2016.

Burlesque Under The Bridges
For pure New Years hedonism, it’s hard to beat this three-and-a-half-hour burlesque extravaganza at The Bridges, featuring, among a bevy of other beauties, “2015 Reigning Queen of Burlesque” Trixie Little and aerialist Elizabeth Munn. Tickets are $250 for table seating and $175 for stageside seating, and include an open bar from 8 p.m. to midnight and passed hors d’oeuvres all night.
