If you want a front-row seat to Baltimore's NYE fireworks, spend New Year's Eve at Wit and Wisdom. The eatery sits right along the banks of the Chesapeake Bay in the Harbor East neighborhood, which means you'll have an unobstructed view of the fireworks as they explode over the ebbing waves at the stroke of midnight.
You have two options when you decide to celebrate with Wit and Wisdom. Come in at 7:30 p.m. for a three-course dinner by head chef Zachary Mills with the perfect wine pairings, courtesy of sommelier Dawn Trabing ($125). You can also skip dinner and just come for the after-party in the lounge at 9 p.m. After you pay cover ($65), you'll be able to kick back at a table or a booth in the lounge and countdown to midnight with drinks from the cash bar. The champagne toast at midnight is complimentary.
