A LA NIKKI: Want to go around the world for the big night? Jet set across the globe on New Year's Eve courtesy of Nikki Beach. Watch the fireworks with the French can-can dancers from St. Tropez and make a champagne toast with the Flamenco stilt walkers from Marbella, all from your own cabana on Miami Beach. It may sound like a fantasy land, but trust us, it's real. All you have to do is call 305-538-1111, or purchase your tickets here. 8 P.M.
AROUND THE BLOCK: Where better to ring in the New Year than at an upscale(ish) block party? For 10 straight hours, Oh Mexico!, Segafredo and Café Nuvo on Espanola Way will be hosting their Miami Beach block party with DJs, bands, and a big ol' projection screen with the famous Times Square Ball Drop. Just make sure to call any of these restos to reserve your $45-$60 spot. 5 P.M.
CHINESE NEW YEAR: We get it. You want to usher in 2010 peacefully and quietly. To start off the New Year in tranquility (before you get back to work), head over to Azul for an exciting seven-course menu and champagne toast at midnight while taking in the relaxing yet exhilarating water and skyline views. What's the price to pay for NYE in serenity? About $300. Call 305-913-8254 or visit their website for your ticket. 8 P.M.
