Many restaurants, bars and businesses are banking on big celebrations this New Year's Eve weekend. And whether you're going out or staying in, there's bound to be some prep work.
For restaurants and bars, the New Year means more party-goers, more drinks and more work getting ready.
"Disco balls, things like that that we don't really have in our storage unit you know. Definitely extra alcohol, thinking about doing some bottle service, so had to prep up, kind of boost up our bars on the ordering," said Walk-Ons Manager Jarred Murphy.
This is the first New Year's bash for Walk-Ons, and Murphy said they're celebrating in a less traditional way.
"Definitely thinking out of the box, we definitely won't be a restaurant tomorrow night. We're going to completely empty out our dining room area, it will be a huge dance floor, DJ Scoop will be here posted up in the corner playing everybody's favorite music, just everybody having a good time," he said.
But if going out isn't your style, then you'll probably be popping some bubbly at home.
"We're going to have a little party at the house and drink a lot of champagne," said Megan Sonnier. "It's New Year's Eve, you know when you think champagne you think New Year's Eve, toasting to new things and the new year."
Marcello's has stocked up on extra champagne and sparkling wine just for the occasion.
"Definitely we have to, just this morning we had special requests for certain ones we had to call in for special orders," said Marcello's sales representative Pete Stevens.
