It seems like 2018 went by in the blink of an eye and the new year is almost here. It’s soiree season, with so many festive things to do. If you’re staying in Seattle to ring in the new year, here are some fun events. Whether you’d like to wear your stretchiest pants and go to a languid five-course meal, drink your weight in champagne, or simply dance the last night of the year away—there’s something for everyone. Happy partying and happy new year!

The eclectic French producer/DJ duo Polo & Pan made a stop in Seattle for the very first time on December 13th, as a part of their North American tour. Polo & Pan is a Paris-based electronic music production and DJ duo, comprised of Paul Armand “Polocorp” Delille, and Alexandre “Peter Pan” Grynszpan. Dubbed as the descendants of the Daft Punk electro scene, Polo & Pan are also known for producing remixes for famed international acts Fakear and Calypso Rose.

There is a sense of celebration in the air, with Christmas around the corner. The most festive (and delicious!) time of the year is almost here. It’s time to catch up with friends and family over lingering feasts and conversations. Good food and wine are synonymous with Christmas parties. While most of us plan the food way in advance, picking out the wines is often a last-minute stressor. It doesn’t have to be that way!
