New Year’s Eve, parking lot of Linda’s La Cantina
4721 E. Colonial Drive, 407-894-4491, lindaslacantinasteakhouse.com
They don’t take reservations on New Year’s Eve at Linda’s La Cantina – you put your name on the list when you arrive and you wait. At most places, that would mean enduring a nightmarishly crowded bar while you wait (and wait and wait) for a table to open up. But at Linda’s, you’re encouraged to make your own party in the parking lot instead. Bring your blankets, cooler, snacks and drinks, open up that tailgate and make your own party on the spot. It’s way better than waiting in line at the bar, and nobody’s going to hassle you: Parking lot tailgating is a New Year’s Eve tradition at Linda’s.
