Celebrate New Year’s At Home

Obviously this New Year’s Eve is going to look A LOT different than in past years. You can’t have a decadent dinner at your favourite restaurant or pop bottles of Champagne at the bar with your friends, but these 17th Ave businesses have created tons of unique ways for you to ring in the New Year from home this year! From take-home drink kits to delicious curb-side pickup dinners, here’s how you can celebrate New Year’s at Home this year.

Take-Home Dinners

Ten Degrees Chocolate New Year’s Eve Dinner 

Ten Degrees Chocolate will be serving up a five course New Year’s Eve dinner this year, available for both delivery and curbside pickup. The lavish dinner features dishes like Prosciutto Shrimp Cocktail accompanied by a chocolate infused cocktail sauce, and Cocoa Nib Crusted Ahi Tuna. Visit their online store to find out more!
