New Year's Eve parties and events in Boston
Everyone has vices. Chef Dante de Magistris (left) is whipping up appetizers and food stations inspired by the seven deadly sins and the people who commit them at Dante's fete. Greed, for one, is represented by a roasted suckling pig with lentils. (We're told it's an Italian tradition to serve lentils on New Year's Eve to promote wealth in the coming year — whatever works.) There will also be music from DJ Adilson and a champagne toast.
21+. 8 p.m.-2 a.m. $80. Dante, 40 Edwin H. Land Blvd., Cambridge. 617-497-4200. restaurantdante.com
