You could stand in the cold to watch the Peach Drop ... or drop it on the dance floor at the Highland Inn Ballroom Lounge's second annual NEW YEAR'S EVE CIRCUS. Special guests Sealions, Abby Go Go and This Piano Plays Itself get the night started, while DJ Dr. Adam Bomb kicks off the dance party at midnight – right after the complimentary champagne toast gives you a little liquid courage to end the decade shakin' what your momma gave you. 21 and up. $8. 8:30 p.m. 644 N. Highland Ave. 404-874-5756. www.thehighlandinn.com. Visit clatl.com/nye for the whole New Year's Eve shebang.
