Let the eating, drinking, music, noisemakers and midnight kisses begin. All around the Island, restaurants are featuring special dinners to help end 2017 on a tasty note.

And after dinner let the music roll. The Harbor View Hotel features music by the Joanne Cassidy Band and the Mike Benjamin Band. This is also a great place to watch the Edgartown fireworks, which go off at midnight.

Also in Edgartown, The Wharf features DJ AP, with the lucky ladies getting in free before 11 p.m.

The Ritz in Oak Bluffs rocks it with a disco masquerade party led by Johnny Hoy & the Bluefish at 8 p.m., followed by DJ Ricky Prime at 11 p.m. Late night burritos help keep the hangovers at bay.

Up the road a bit, DJ Donald Rose leads the rhythm section at the P.A. Club in Oak Bluffs.

This is just a mere sampling, of course, of all that New Year’s Eve has to offer. But whether going out is your style, staying in by the fire, or tucked in bed by Chilmark midnight, a Happy New Year to all.
