Drink: Festive Spots to Toast the New Year
Wallingford may not be Ballard or Belltown when it comes to nightlife, but a few spots are doing their part:
Babalu will host a Champagne Ball. Details on Facebook. (1723 N. 45th St.; 547-1515)
Changes will ring in the new year with Aunt Flo and “A unique night you won’t forget” (2103 N. 45th St.; 545-8363).

If you’d rather toast in the comfort of your own home or are heading to a party, sample some bubbly at Wine World Warehouse this week. Spend $200 at the new wine emporium between now and December 31 and receive a two pack Riedel magnum glass pack if you utter the “secret password.” They’re open till 9 p.m. on New Year’s Eve.
Be Merry: Special Events
New Year’s Eve Celebration at OmCulture (2210 N Pacific St.; 829-9969): “Ecstatic Dance and Flying Turtle Dance spawn an UltraDance at OmCulture! Five hours (8 p.m. to 1 a.m.) teeming with music and magic to bring your year’s journey to a close and pull back the curtains on the wonders of 2011!” Champagne served at midnight. $15 – $25 sliding scale at the door.
After a nice New Year’s Eve dinner, you could amble down to Gas Works Park to watch the Space Needle fireworks at midnight. The weather should be clear but cold — be sure to bring a blanket.
