You've been to fancy balls, you've attended formal dinner parties and you've politely applauded as the ball dropped while seated in your Great Aunt Helen's rumpus room; don't you owe it to yourself to go wild this New Year's Eve? Hell yeah, you do. Wild Country's New Year's Eve Party features a personal champagne bottle, live music, a balloon drop at midnight and the ever-popular mechanical bull all night long. You ain't rung in a new year until you've downed a shot of Wild Turkey and then taken a spin on the ol' Techno-Toro. Tickets for the party cost $15, and a $99 package deal at the nearby Doubletree Hotel (call 618-345-2800) includes a room for two and free shuttle service to and from Wild Country (17 Gateway Drive, Collinsville, Illinois; www.wildcountrynightclub.com).
