Welcome to On the Radar: New Year's Eve Edition, where we preview up-and-coming events to mark your calendar for. The Florida Aquarium hosts Aqua-Eve, which promises everything that a New Years Eve party should be, including live music, beer and wine, decadent desserts and a champagne toast (I, for one, will be putting off my resolution to start working out until Jan. 2, when all the alcohol and fatty foods are safely detoxed.)
All set off, of course, by one of the Bay areas best views of the fireworks extravaganza over the channel. If youre really in the mood for some hoity-toity New Years fun, try the Aquariums fireworks cruise (holy shit!) aboard the Bay Spirit II. Thurs., Dec. 31, 9 p.m.-1 a.m., The Florida Aquarium, 701 Channelside Drive, Tampa, $100, flaquarium,org.
