December 31, 2012 may fall on a Monday this year but that won’t stop people from celebrating New Year’s Eve in Fargo-Moorhead. Some people may prefer the tradition of staying in curled up in front of the television watching the infamous “ball drop” on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. Others may seek a night filled with champagne, funny paper hats, black ties and glitter dresses.  Oh, and don’t forget the noisemakers!

If you plan to start your night with dinner, I would suggest calling ahead to see if any reservations are still available or if they offer call-ahead seating. Many of the larger restaurants in Fargo-Moorhead will not take reservations but may offer call-ahead seating. You may still need to wait for a table but calling ahead could shave 20 minutes+ off your wait time, depending on how busy they are. For a list of restaurants in Fargo-Moorhead, check out our website!
