Christmas 2011 is now but a memory. And with that behind us, we can focus on the next big event: New Year’s Eve. 2012 is almost here, and you don’t need to head downtown for a little bit of fun as we bid farewell to the old and welcome the new. Here are some local New Year’s festivities you may want to check out:

Enjoy our special New Years menu, champagne, party favors, our infamous Giggle Dam hospitality and of course our, back by popular demand, ‘Laugh with the DAM Stars’ show.
