The best New Year's Eve Singles party I've been to is the one hosted by OnSpeedDating. I actually ended up meeting my fiancé at their New Year's Eve Party in 2012. If you're single and looking for somewhere to ring in the New Year I highly recommend their event. The key is to purchase tickets early or you'll get stuck paying full-price. They usually offer an early-bird special. http://www.OnSpeedDating.com
