Get Out

It’s Thursday, and you’ve got no idea what you’ll do for the weekend.

Patch is coming to the rescue. We’ve got the best bets for your done-work-outta-here time. Check our picks for the activities to hit and a list of new bars, restaurants and shops to explore.

1. Happy Hour

Where/When: . On Friday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Why Go: For one, the happy hour specials are appealing, to say the least. Secondly, if you decide to stay later, you'll catch the live musical entertainment. And third, this is the perfect way to celebrate one of the last nights of the year out, leaving you the opportunity to celebrate New Year's at home.

Pricing: Food and drink prices vary.

2. Celebrate New Year's 2012

Where/When: . On Saturday, starting at 9 p.m.

Why Go: This New Year's Day celebration starts with a four-course dinner and is followed by an open bar until midnight, music via DJ and a champagne toast.

Where/When: . On Saturday from 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Why Go: This New Year's celebration features a DJ, premium open bar, live simulcast from Times Square and all that you'll need for that special midnight toast.

4. Celebrate New Year's at Uncle Jack's

Where/When: . On Saturday at 6 p.m., 8 p.m., or 10 p.m.

Why Go: All those dining after 10 p.m. will get complimentary champagne for a New Year's toast. All those dining before that will relish in the exquisite menu.

Pricing: Food and drink prices vary. Reservations recommended.

5. Sunday Brunch

Why Go: Because this is truly the way to welcome the first day of the new year - after you wake up, that is. Breakfast is served all day, so arrive at your leisure.
