The start of a new year is a special time when everyone comes together to celebrate, leaving you ample time to bury the you-know-what. Let auld acquaintance stay forgot with this Groupon.
$49 for a New Year’s Eve Party ($100 Value)
- A three-hour open bar
- A midnight champagne toast
- A party favor<p>
From 10 p.m. to 1 a.m., partiers can ring in the new year as DJ tunes permeate the airwaves and fireworks ignite in the background sky. The open bar extends to 1 a.m., so partiers can still revel after the shenanigans have died down.
John Saki opened Louisiana Restaurant to bring authentic Creole flavors from the bayou to the Baltimore area. The gracious interior, with appointments crafted almost exclusively by Fells Point craftsmen, creates an ideal atmosphere in which to enjoy the eatery’s menu of French cuisine with a Southern twist. The menu’s three courses highlight traditional down-home dishes, such as parmesan crayfish and Louisiana crab bisque. Entrees include Creole-mustard and pecan-encrusted catfish, as well as lobster hash and grilled quail with andouille-roquefort corn bread.
The elegant dining rooms, which John himself designed, also showcase eclectic pieces salvaged from local historic sites, such as the staircase from the old Inner Harbor Power Plant and pink-marble walls from the defunct Saks Fifth Avenue. John and his family actually opened Louisiana Restaurant on Valentine’s Day more than 10 years ago, making it a poetic destination to celebrate a romantic evening or a birthday; the restaurant was also recently voted one of Baltimore's most romantic restaurants by Yelp users. The restaurant’s ballroom also accommodates up to 150 guests, charming them with an atmosphere that provides the comfort of a Southern mansion without the discomfort of a Colonel Sanders costume.
