...bye 2016! Radio Milwaukee's New Year's Eve guide

What are you doing New Year's Eve?

...No, I'm not referencing the (semi-creepy? anyone else feel that way?) song, but New Year's Eve is on its way and there's lots going on in Milwaukee. What are you doing?

Whether you're feeling fancy and fun or lazy and just looking to drink, we've done the work for you.
Check out these different events going on this New Years in Milwaukee:

Looking to get fancy?
