3 Brilliant Itineraries For The Best NYE Yet

For those of you looking to forgo a typical New Year's Eve celebration this year, we hear you. As December 31 fast approaches, we know exactly what we don't want to do: wait in line in the freezing cold, scramble our way through a overcrowded venue, pay too much for too little, or sit home and feel certifiably lame. We'll take none of the above, thanks.
Instead, we came up with three anti-NYE ideas that are so much more fun than the standard-issue debauchery or the last-minute, where-are-my-friends pathos. Want to do a low-key dinner at home followed by an epic game night? We gotcha. What about all-you-can-eat Spanish tapas and the best movie of 2013? Done and done. These clever plans will have you super stoked to ring in the New Year. Click through for three, made-from-scratch itineraries that'll please even the pickiest partygoer. We'll toast to that!
