But before we talk party dresses (but really, we gotta talk about this one because it’s under $40), let’s talk party plans.
The New Year’s Eve party at Fourth Street Live is like getting five or six parties in one. Not to mention they have the only ball drop in Louisville. They’ll have 100% Poly playing on the main stage counting down to the ball drop and massive confetti explosion (see the pic below for proof). You can snag all-inclusive VIP tickets that include food, drinks, party favors and, of course, champagne. The VIP packages also cover entrance to some of the venues like Pizza Bar or Tavern on Fourth, where, I for one, would be play skee-ball and sipping champagne until the countdown. (Seriously, where are my fellow skee-ball lovers?) It’s also the best party if you’re looking to sneak away for a night since you can just walk (or take a quick Uber) from all of the downtown hotels. The cherry on top? You can save $10 if you use code LWWNYE.
Okay, so here’s the part where you might be saying, “But Danielle, I haven’t been down to Fourth Street Live in forever.” And I was in the same boat until recently. But it’s changed a TON in the last few years. They’ve seriously upped the food game and the bars have way more variety (and fun things to do inside). I’d definitely encourage you to check it out … just maybe don’t dress as aggressively as I did when taking these pics.
You guys, I’ve never gotten more (totally warranted and expected) side-eyes than when I took these pics at lunch time last Friday. It didn’t help that it was 20 degrees and my coat made me look like an extra from Mob Wives. Needless to say, Tabitha is a champ.
