The new year is only hours away, and if you are like most of the rest of us, the holiday season has probably worn you quite thin.

About half of all Americans plan to stay in for New Year’s Eve. Of those who leave the house, 1 in 10 will go to a bar or restaurant to celebrate.

In the event you want to let someone else do the cooking as you ring in the new year this weekend, here’s a list of some of the restaurants open on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Be sure to check with local chain restaurants for opening and closing hours. Many local properties set their own hours.
