Reelin' in the New Year at the Wharf. New Year's Eve doesn't have to be only a nighttime celebration. It'll be midnight somewhere the whole day, so have fun under the sun while the rest of the world rings in the new year. Families are welcome during the daytime party, but the evening festivities, beginning at 7 p.m., are for adults only. Expect booze, a lineup of local food trucks, and live entertainment. Noon Sunday, December 31, at the Wharf Miami, 114 SW North River Dr., Miami; 305-906-4000; wharfmiami.com. Tickets cost $30 to $3,175 via eventbrite.com.
New Year's Eve at Mana Wynwood. The perfect neighborhood for a local to ring in the New Year is Wynwood. You can chug champagne and walk from party to party while avoiding South Beach tourists. The free event at Mana Wynwood will include a complimentary beverage with RSVP, a proper countdown, and the biggest bangers of 2017 spun by DJ Ariel Assault. Eat, dance, and welcome a properly sweaty 2018. 8 p.m. Sunday at Mana Wynwood, 318 23rd St., Miami; manawynwood.com. Admission is free to $15.
