We met with the manager of Delmonico's to see how the local area prepared to ring in the new year.

"All week we've been kind of preparing and getting everyone trained and ready," said Jay Huggins, Delmonico's manager. "Ordering extra supplies, extra plates, extra silverware. At midnight we always do a champagne toast for whoever's still here. It's sort of a tradition here and a lot of people stop down at midnight at the bar and we all just toast to each other so it's just a fun time."

Delmonico's employees say the restaurant got busy around 4:00 p.m. and stayed busy throughout the night.

With the completion of their new bar, employees say they anticipated longer wait times for restaurant goers and
larger crowds than usual.
