Cirque-A-Licious Offers a High-Flying New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is one of those nights that can be highly overrated. You get dressed up, pay four times the normal price for a buffet dinner, party hat, and champagne, and listen to either a wedding band or DJ as the clock strikes midnight.  

This year, we're thinking of celebrating with circus people...specifically cirque people. As in those beautifully costumed dancer/acrobats of the famed Cirque du Soleil.

, at the Meyer Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, is offering three special holiday shows. Prices include dinner under the blue-and-yellow big top, show, and dancing.

A cash bar is available and wine is served with dinner. Prices range

from affordable to extravagant. We're thinking that toasting 2013 under

the big top while beautiful girls whirl above our heads might just be

more enjoyable than the usual prime rib buffet and DJ.


range from $39.95 and $49.95 for the December 30 show to $275 and

$487.50 for New Year's eve. Use code BIGTOP to take $100 off a pair of
