We will be there with our daughter who is in mid-20's. I usually try to avoid restaurants that evening as you are often rushed, get bad service and food but we will need to go somewhere as we need to eat. I tried searching the internet for activities sponsored by the city but could not really find anything. Is there something special that happens that night? - We used to have something called First night here that had outdoor entertainment and then fireworks at midnight. Of course, in New York, Times Square is the place to be. We are staying in Union Square area.
