Here are five things to do this New Year’s weekend.
1. In theaters this weekend is the critically acclaimed “All the Money in the World” rated R, about the story of the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather Jean Paul Getty (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom; “Molly’s Game,” rated R, based on a true story and starring Jessica Chastain as Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game and became an FBI target; and the R-rated drama “Phantom Thread” (award-winning actor Daniel Day Lewis’s final film) set in 1950’s London, about a renowned dressmaker whose fastidious life is disrupted by a young, strong-willed woman who becomes his muse and lover.
2. Sunday night is New Year’s Eve, and New York City won’t be the only town that’s rockin’: Many pubs, restaurants and the like have special parties planned for Monday and for this weekend. Check the newspaper for information on the hot spots. Of course, don’t feel bad about staying in and celebrating by watching the Times Square festivities. If you go out, please make sure to have a designated driver in your group or call a taxi.
3. Now that the new year is almost here, make sure you make it easier for yourself to stick to your resolutions. Did you set a goal of losing weight or getting in shape? Why not check out health clubs or home gym equipment this weekend? The sooner you start on your new goal, the better you’ll likely fare.
4. The 129th Tournament of Roses Parade steps off at 11 a.m. EST on Monday, so you should be recovered from your eve parties and be able to watch this classic.
5. The college football bowl games should keep you entertained as well – there’s a full slate of games this weekend. Check http://www.ncaa.com/news/football/article/2017-12-03/college-football-bowl-schedule-scores-tv-listings-matchup for the full bowl schedule.
