Ringing in the New Year in San Antonio
With the end of a calendar year comes a time to reflect on the last 12 months, a time to look ahead at the coming year, time to spend with loved ones, make resolutions, clean out closets...and celebrate! Whether you want to stay out all night or tuck the kids in early, there's something for you to do. We've compiled a list of a few options if your social calendar isn't too full yet.
