Even though the Chicago area still has yet to see much in the way of significant snowfall, the holiday season is well underway in the Windy City.

And with that comes the looming New Year's Eve holiday. With practically every one of the watering holes citywide throwing their own bash in honor of the occasion, choosing where to count down to the new year can be daunting. But HuffPost Chicago has narrowed down the options to a selection of 14 concerts, parties, dinners and more, ranging in price from $7 to.. a bit more than that.

Did we miss your favorite pick? Let us know below. Looking to save money -- and stress -- by taking the CTA? Don't forget that the trains will be free of charge for the bulk of the night.
