New Year's Eve at DANK-Haus

When: Fri., Dec. 31 2010

Two options for German celebration at Dank-Haus: Polka Blow-Out ($4.99-$5.99) includes a performance by the Polkaholics as well as demonstrations of the Feuerzangenbowle (sugar soaked in alcohol and lit on fire) and Bleigiessen (traditionally hot lead--in this case, wax--dropped into cold water; the resulting shape forecasts the year ahead). Silvesterball ($80) includes those demos as well as a buffet with German provisions like spaetzle and strudel, music by DJs, and a champagne toast at midnight.

Price: $4.99-$80
