12/29 UPDATE! $20 general admission tiks have just been added for those who don’t want a food/drink package!
NYE is one of those “Big or Stay Home” nights – where you either lay low or go for broke. Chicago’s NYE Gold Coast Toast is the “go for broke”:
For decades, the Gold Coast bars on Division St. have been a nut house on New Year’s Eve, being home to city peeps, suburbanites and visitors from all over the globe who want to party in Chicago for NYE. Well the six big bars in that hood just formed the “NYE Gold Coast Toast” event – party packages that take this thing to the next level. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s a Saturday night this year, which means these bars are open until 5AM.
We’ll be at Mother’s – that’s right, the Mother’s you went to back in the day, when you were sweating it out while the bouncer studied your ID…the Mother’s that has been the rite of passage for those coming to the city from pretty much everywhere – for decades. That whole strip of bars on Division is cranking it up more than ever and we can’t wait to stumble around the Gold Coast until 5AM.
In the words of Spinal Tap’s musical genius, Nigel Tufnel, “This one goes to 11”.
