  • Matchbox Cafe on 9G (off of Rhinebeck) is also having a cool New Years party with dancing, food, and more. They don’t have a website to my knowledge, and I have found no other mention of the event online. I was merely told this when I went to the restaurant a few days ago.

    Anyways, thank you for the list. It is very helpful.
