New Year’s Eve marks the end of 2013, and also the end of the WAIHEKE ISLAND YACHT CLUB pop-up in San Francisco. They’re not going out quietly; in fact, they’re celebrating with a big bash on New Year’s Eve. “The Last Supper” is a tasting menu with optional wine pairings. There are two seatings available: 5:30pm-6pm is a five-course tasting menu (wine pairings $70) while the 8pm-9:30pm is seven courses ($90 wine pairings). Both seatings are $120 per person. Meanwhile, “The Last Party” kicks off at 9pm and includes unlimited cocktails, wine, and canapés. Tickets are $100 until December 22nd, then they’re $150 until December 28th, and after that you can snag them for $200. If you are a Last Supper guest, tickets for The Last Party are $80. Pier 29, 1256 The Embarcadero, 415-956-1048.

For a night out that won’t clobber your wallet, check out the family-style dinner at ~MAVEN~. For $40 per person you get a dinner that includes duck sliders and truffled apple gnocchi; an additional $40 gets you four cocktail pairings from Kate Bolton (you definitely want to say yes to that). Reservations are available from 5pm-9pm.

Oh, sushi sounds good, doesn’t it? Make your way to ~ICHI SUSHI~ for a special prix-fixe dinner of sushi, oysters, and Japanese dishes. Dinner is $120 per person, with sake pairings for an additional $35. Make your reservations by email.

Don’t miss the party at ~COMSTOCK SALOON~, where $69 gets you a five-course dinner that includes a 45-day-aged rib-eye. There will also be plenty of bourbon and bubbles, and live music from “Ms. Katy and her band of hillbilly heathens.” Bring it on! Reservations are available from 5:30pm-11pm.

Who doesn’t love a whole roasted pig? Ring in all that is porky at ~HI LO~, where they’ll be roasting a whole pig and serving it with sides and fixings. The best part? Tickets are $90 per person and include tax, tip, and all you can drink cocktails. Boom.

~FOREIGN CINEMA~ is going tropical this year, with a Sexy Tiki bash. The four-course, Polynesian-themed menu will be accompanied by live music, and Elvis Presley’s Blue Hawaii will be the film of the evening. Cost is $95 per person, not including tax, tip, or beverages.

For a killer meal, don’t miss the nine-course tasting menu at ~SPQR~ for $148. Optional wine pairings will also be available. Reservations can be made by email or by calling 415-771-7779.

There’s also a great menu going at ~COCO500~, where you’ll find a delicious-sounding four-course dinner for $85, with wine pairings for an additional $35. Each course has two options, too, which is always nice. Details and reservations here.

Well, by now you know that ~BAR TARTINE~ is a great choice for any special dinner, and New Year’s is no exception. They are offering a menu of Japanese-style okazu, or small plates. You have the option of ordering à la carte, or select the whole thing as a prix-fixe menu for $82 per person. Dishes include nettle and matsutake mushroom custard, or clams with smoked broth and grated radish, to name just a couple. There are just a few reservations available from 6pm-11pm, and there’s a toast at midnight.
