With 2017 winding down, an important decision needs to be made: How will you ring in 2018?
This being Miami, that choice won't be hard. There's a plethora of parties happening all around the city, and venues and nightclubs are quickly booking acts and offering the promise of a free champagne toast at midnight with the hope that you'll spend New Year's Eve with them.
And while exorbitant cover charges abound on December 31, there is still something for every budget, whether you want to see Pitbull say "Dalé!" as the Big Orange rises at Bayfront Park or party poolside at the Fontainebleau with Kygo and Demi Lovato.
As for who you are going to kiss at midnight? Well, sorry, you're on your own there.
