FAREWELL CONCERT
Tell us it isn't so. Fats Grill presents A Fond Farewell—An Epic Night of Acoustic Music. Last night ever before the iconic bar and grill closed and the building is demolished. Why? Let's just say "developers." Things are changing in Sugar House, and they're changing without the little guy. Celebrate the good times, and hope Fats can find a new venue. The lineup, including Bob Bland, Michelle Moonshine and Fred Hayes with Jacob Dahlberg of the Gorgeous Gourds can be found on Facebook. Fats Grill, 2182 S. Highland Drive, 801-484-9467, Wednesday, Dec. 30, 6 p.m.-midnight. FatsGrillSLC.com

HIKES
Bring in the New Year with a little exercise. Go hike. Utah state parks are joining the First Day Hikes initiative with five-day adventures across the state. You can start at 10 a.m. with a trip to Antelope Island State Park for the Beacon Hill hike. A park ranger will lead the 5-mile moderate hike while talking about the history and wildlife of the island, smack dab in the middle of the Great Salt Lake. Gravel Pit Trailhead, 801-773-2941, Friday, Jan. 1, 10 a.m. StateParks.Utah.gov

NEW YEAR'S CELEBRATIONS
Who says kids can't celebrate New Year's? Just don't let them stay up too late. The Natural History Museum of Utah will host a Countdown to Noon at a New Year's celebration for the whole family. You can make your own paper snowflakes, winter crowns and light sabers. Examine snow crystals under a microscope and check out Utah's winter birds. Help them ring in the new year, natural history-style, with a group countdown, an explosion of confetti and streamers, rockin' music, prizes and countdown fun from DJ Jarvicious! Natural History Museum of Utah, 301 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City, 801-581-6927, Thursday, Dec. 31, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., regular admission price, party pack $3. NHMU.Utah.edu

You can eat your way into 2016 with Ballet West and Culinary Crafts. Join Adam Sklute and a collection of Ballet West's dancers, along with Utah's premiere caterer, Culinary Crafts, for a 10-course blowout New Year's Eve celebration at the Rice-Eccles Tower, complete with dancing and fireworks.

To attend this exclusive event, you must purchase your tickets in advance. They are very limited, so don't delay. Rice Eccles Tower, 451 S. 1400 East, Salt Lake city, 801-869-6900, Thursday, Dec. 31, 7 p.m.-midnight, $200-$250. Bit.ly/1QYlZlQ
