A Year's End in Cabbagetown 

This week's edition of Cabbagetown Living gives you a list of New Year's Eve events in Cabbagetown from A-Z , as well as two feature businesses for the week. 

On behalf of the Cabbagetown BIA I'd like to wish you a very Happy New Year! See you in 2014. 

F'Amelia, 12 Amelia Street

It's almost time to ring in the New Year - start with dinner at F'Amelia, and then join in the celebrations next door at Extended F'Amelia. Jason is hosting a house party at the wine bar and everyone is invited!

The Flying Beaver Pubaret, Dinner and Dancing into the New Year 
488 Parliament Street 
The Flying Beaver is hosting Maggie Cassella's Year End Show: Because I Said So. The Year in Revile. Showtime starts at 8pm, but they're open for seating at any time you want. Show tickets are $25

Dinner and drinks minimum of $30 per person (includes party favours, a glass of champagne at midnight, and dance party) just for NYE 

The dance party starts the second the show is over and we can clear the tables out of the room! 

If you want to just show up for dancing - come anytime after 10pm and if there's room we'd love to have you. Just flip us a $5 at the door. That's pretty reasonable for a New Year's Eve Party eh?
