Restaurants are seasoning everything with the delicacy and the parties will be more lively than those of the good old prohibition days, considering you're dressed for the occasion. But whether you're into $1000 tables and flapper skirts or you prefer a simple $45 open bar, there's a bevy of options for anyone who's decided to rough it out in the Magic City for December 31. Check out our handpicked selections of the parties and menus that will ring in 2014 the right way.
