What to do for New Years Eve in Tampa

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! It's amazing that New Years is only a few days away. Does anyone have big plans? We are going to start New Years Eve off at an amazing wine dinner on New Years Eve at Mermaid Tavern, followed by a party to ring in the New Year at Seminole Hard Rock Tampa. Then on New Years Day, I will head to Orlando to see the Gators play in the Citrus Bowl. Can't wait!
