Austin dazzles with variety of New Year’s Eve events this year

Congress Ave. nyeatsch.splashthat.com.

Hopfields’ New Year’s Eve Dance Party. A full-scale dance party might not seem in the wheel house of this gastropub, but the campus-area Hopfields wants to give a beloved neighborhood dive bar the farewell it never got. Nasty’s closed suddenly a few months ago, and there’s only one way to bid it adieu: with a hip-hop dance party bidding adieu to the bar and the year. Hopfields will also have a prix fixe dinner, a bubbles toast at midnight and late-night snacks. 6 p.m. Sunday. $25-$114. 3110 Guadalupe St. facebook.com/events/1962490503964642/.
