If you are looking to ring in the new year like a champ, you couldn't do much better than celebrating the arrival of 2017 in Dorchester.
And it's much more affordable than the big city prices.
New Year's Eve will bring many party and dining options to Dorchester. Here are the public celebrations we know of:
- Big T's BBQ Pit Stop: The east side of Dorchester's main street will be swinging on Dec. 31, that's for sure. Big T's will be hosting Panama Road. In addition, the restaurant will be serving a special buffet, including prime rib, BBQ meats, and seafood with the fixings. Drink specials all day, we are told.
- Dorchester American Legion: Dorchester's Legion Hall will be rocking -- or perhaps we should say polka-ing. The Brad Husak Combo will be playing at the Legion's New Year's Eve dance. The Legion's doors will open at 8 p.m. and the music will go beyond midnight. The cover is only $5.
- City Slickers: On the west side of main street, City Slickers will be serving prime rib; steak and shrimp; and New York Strip. And you can add Crab Legs to any special. Full salad bar will be available, as well as desserts and complimentary champagne. Free pool and jukebox all night long. The establishment is accepting reservations. Regular menu also available.
Happy New Year's Eve from the Dorchester Times.
