Not sure where to go or what to do? Here are a few ideas

2009 is coming to an end and you’ve got nothing to do. Fear not, we’ve scoured the city and here’s where you can ring in the new year.

Hit the Glitter City Gala at the National Constitution Center where you can party with over 1,800 other guests, enjoy a five-hour (six-hour for VIPs) open bar, great buffets, live music, DJs and more. Tickets are available now for $125.

12 Midnight at the Crystal Tea Room will allow you to mix and mingle in style. Party VIP-style in the glass atrium with butlered martinis and champagne, a carving station and more for $175 or general admission for $125
Head to the Hyatt Regency at Penn's Landing for the 5th Annual NYE Celebrity Style Caribbean Gala. Ring in 2010 with fireworks, a panoramic view of the city, DJs, five-hour open bar, buffet, a champagne toast at midnight and so much more. Tickets range from $109 to $129.

For $85, grab the Old City New Year's Eve Passport. It includes admission to Lucy's Hat Shop, Top Hat and Drinker's Tavern with free booze, a champagne toast, light hors d'oeuvres and dancing.

There's also a Rittenhouse Passport this New Year's Eve for $90. Head to Drinker's Pub, Noche or both and enjoy the same great deals as in Old City.

Hit the GNG New Year's Eve Launch Party at the Philadelphia Naval Base where film producers Steven "Stevie G" Gordon and Terrence Glasgow will debut the trailer of their newest film "The Gift." The party is $60 and includes food, a champagne toast at midnight and a surprise giveaway. DJ Corey DST will be spinning all your favorite music.

Mad River in Manayunk will be a winter wonderland complete with snow, Coors Light snow bunnies and snow angels. $90 will get you in the door, a six-hour open bar, full buffet until 11 p.m., a champagne toast and giveaways.

Spend New Year's Eve on the Delaware with the Spirit of Philadelphia's New Year's Eve Fireworks Dinner Cruise. Here'e the deal -- for $164.90 a person you'll receive a premium bar package, grande dinner buffet, DJ and dancing, champagne toast at midnight and party favors.
