When: Thu., Dec. 31, 8 p.m.-12 a.m. 2015
As everyone knows, it's always Cardinals season in St. Louis — even when the Redbirds aren't on the field. To ensure that your burning love of baseball stays stoked through the long winter, ring in the new year at Ballpark Village (601 Clark Avenue; www.stlballparkvillage.com). At NYE Live! you'll be able to hang out in five different venues within the village, and check out the view of the stadium from all of them, if you wish (at least, you can try). Plus, there will be live music from Charles Glenn, DJs, a complimentary toast at midnight and even a ball drop! There are two ticket levels for your New Year's Eve fun: The gold package costs $75 and includes your drinks from 8 p.m. to midnight, and the diamond package will set you back $125 and net you the aforementioned drinks, plus buffet eats and access to VIP areas.
