Nothing connotes luxury and celebration quite like oysters, so what better way to bid adieu to 2018 than with slippery bivalves at Renee Erickson’s acclaimed Ballard oyster bar? This year, the restaurant is serving a luxe four-course dinner, and offering a special cocktail list, wine, and nonalcoholic drinks along with caviar and champagne. Given Erickson’s knack for festive gatherings, it’s sure to be a convivial evening.
