Fab Four tribute
Always dreamed of spending the holidays with the Fab Four? Locals can pretend they're in old Liverpool with the Beatles tribute band The Sun Kings, who will ring in the New Year with a concert at Redwood City's Club Fox (2209 Broadway Street). Tickets are $50-$75 and the show starts at 9 p.m. Go to clubfoxrwc.com.
Jazz and belly dancing
Morocco's Restaurant in Mountain View (873 Castro St.) will host a New Year's Eve dinner with live belly dancing and jazz music, with doors opening at 4 p.m. Dinner starts at $40 per person, with a variety of menu options (including vegetarian) available. Go to moroccosrestaurant.com.
If you're looking to ring in the new year with some fine dining, you may want to head to The Sea by Alexander's Steakhouse (4269 El Camino Real, Palo Alto), which is offering a five-course New Year's Eve dinner, including a champagne toast and two-macaron gift box. The seafood-based meal is $175 per person, plus $65 optional wine pairings, and seatings will be available between 5:30 and 9:30 p.m.
Free rides on Caltrain
If your New Year's Eve plans include imbibing alcohol, or if you just want to avoid the roads altogether, Caltrain is offering free rides after 8 p.m., and extra southbound trains departing from the San Francisco station at 12:45 a.m., 1:15 a.m., 1:45 a.m. and 2:15 a.m., making all local stops to the San Jose Diridon station.
While Caltrain officials want party-goers to make the commuter rail its designated driver, don't expect to continue the party while on board. Open containers of alcohol aren't allowed on trains after 9 p.m. and anyone getting disruptively rowdy will be escorted off of the train.
