Happy New Year everyone! My husband and I spent New Year's Eve in Saratoga for the first time. We had a great time. We didn't buy a First Night Button but the streets were filled with lots of hustle and bustle. We stayed at the Hilton on Broadway. It was filled to capacity. We ate an early dinner at Wheatfields. The food and the service were excellent! We sat near the window and it started snowing. It looked like something out of It's a Wonderful Life. Later on, we had drinks at Caroline Street Bistro (very festive) and then stayed in Bailey's for midnight. We were lucky that we were able to get a the last table. After we sat, they were turning people away because it was filled to capacity. We were able to see the fireworks from Congress Park inside of Baileys which was good because it was freezing! The only downside to our night is I could not believe how many arguments we saw among college aged kids because they were so drunk! Next stop to Saratoga: Chowderfest!
