Part of enjoying a concluding year is taking a look back at the generations that existed before. And while it may seem a little cliché at this point for people to don flapper dresses and zoot suits, isn't that what New Year's Eve is all about? A time of remembrance? A time of reflection? A time for … you get the idea. While the city will be alive with numerous New Year's Eve events, one just happens to have said flappers and zoot suits (that is if you dress accordingly). The Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown (2600 Louisiana NE) is hosting A Great Gatsby New Year's Eve Affair. The festivities take place tomorrow night in their grand ballroom and will have numerous amenities for those who want to bring in the new year with some pizzazz. There will be giveaways and prizes every hour, live music by Swag, champagne, a balloon drop to coincide with that glorious countdown and a fabulous dinner buffet with party favors. If you're anything like me, the food alone is probably worth the trip. The event kicks off at 7pm, and admission prices range from $37.95 for a single person to a $200 couples package that includes dinner, overnight accommodations and breakfast for two. Doesn't that put the kibosh on staying in with some Chinese food? Sheraton Uptown Hotel • Tue Dec 31 • 7pm-12:30am • $37.95-$200 • View on Alibi calendar
