Like most people, I am ready to say goodbye to 2016. It's been a long year of celebrity deaths, politics, and drama. I am actually very excited for the new year and looking to welcome it in at a party.  Now I could have told you about every party in Boston but I want to bring you the BEST. Here's my list of the Best parties, dinners, and brunches I could find in and around Boston. 

I also want to take the time and wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year!! I look forward to seeing you in 2017.
