I am actually heading out of town for New Year's this year because I have family in from the East Coast that I haven't seen in a year. But if I wasn't going out of town, I would definitely be hitting up a few of these great New Year's Eve specials in Waukesha. These are what I found, but I know there are more parties and events going on.
Whatever you do, have fun and be safe. Call a cab if you have had too much too drink or follow the rule that I have - no driving (regardless if I drank or not) after 11 pm because after that, the roads aren't safe.
