Sure, it would be nice to celebrate New Year's Eve in a tropical location. Unfortunately, for most Minnesotans that simply is not going to happen. However, partying in a tiki bar in the dead of winter may be the next best thing. This Monday, Psycho Suzi's Motor Lounge will be throwing a Polynesian-themed bash with enough tropical drinks to help you forget that there's snow and ice on the ground. The evening won't leave you hungry, as there will be a dinner buffet offering the best from the restaurant's menu. You probably won't be leaving sober, either, as admission includes four drink tickets that can be redeemed at the bars located on any of the three floors (there will also be a champagne toast at midnight, of course). A photo booth will be available so revelers can commemorate the evening, and live entertainment will keep festivities going until 2013 crashes the party.
Mon., Dec. 31, 5:30 p.m.-1 a.m., 2012
