If you're not wanting to party with the family/your squad at home and would rather go out instead, you know that NYE party covers can get steep super quickly. Skip the bougie parties and opt for something a little more affordable and laid-back. All these parties either have no charge or one less than $20, giving you more cash to spend on drinks.

“Go big or go home” was definitely the motto for this party. The ridiculously cheap cover gets you a complimentary “Bye-Bye 2017” cocktail, access to a midnight snack bar (yum), and a complimentary champagne toast with … Spurs Jesus! The local celebrity will also unveil his very own Spurs Jesus dog at midnight. Plus, DJ Stretch and DJ Sandman will be on the tables. $10, 9pm-2am, 1150 S. Alamo St., (210) 265-5292.
