THE OTHER DAY, my oldest daughter, Adrianne, told youngest daughter, Eve, that she had a boyfriend. Big mistake. Not only did Eve tell us that Adrianne had a boyfriend. She told us his name, rank, Social Security number, height, weight, and Facebook alias. But before you think ill of her, it's not Eve's fault. She was born talking. When she was a baby, she would sit on the bed making strange, word-like sounds while watching Letterman. We called it her late night talk show.

There are many ways to cross the threshold into 2015, from gala affairs to quiet romantic dinners. But on New Year's Eve, nothing beats a gathering of people of all ages, sharing a toast of something sparkling. Old friends and new, parents alongside children, together between past and future. Sparkling, flaming, fancy, and formal can be had in many a venue, or evoked with simple gestures at home. Light all the candles you can find. Create a centerpiece with glittery ribbons and mirrored balls.

The Eagles signed quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, linebacker Don Cherry, and safety Nick Perry on Sunday to bring their roster to the 90-man limit on the eve of their first training camp practice.

DON'T CALL IT a comeback. After releasing her first album in nine years last spring, Philly-born rapper Eve has another project: a sitcom. The sitcom, slated for the 2014-15 pilot season on ABC, is reportedly a multicamera interracial romantic comedy. Eve is no stranger to being in front of the camera. She starred in an eponymous UPN sitcom that lasted from 2003 to 2006, playing a fashion designer named Shelly, despite the fact that the show was called "Eve," which seemed rather silly.

Even though you're still unwrapping presents this morning, there's a question that always looms around this time: What are you doing New Year's Eve? Here are several options if you don't have your party nailed down (all prices per person). Wanna dance?

Union Transfer's two floors and multiple rooms make it easier for the planners to weave musical magic.

THE BEYONCE lip-synching controversy shouldn't be a controversy at all, according to Philly girl Eve . "Why are people making such a big deal out of it?" she said to our colleague Jenice Armstrong. " At this point, if you need to question this girl's talent, you should just stop. You should really just never listen to music. We all know the girl can sing. We all know she's a perfectionist. " Eve, who recently agreed to be a spokeswoman for the Philly-based Big Brothers, Big Sisters mentoring organization, added that "this was a huge moment in history for America and for her. Why not dot all the i's and cross the t's when you know that at any drop of a dime, if somebody asks you to blow, you can blow.

In an era of fashionista rappers with gangsta attitude, such as Nicki Minaj and Azealia Banks, it's awesome — even necessary — that Eve make her return. At 33, Philly's self-proclaimed "pit bull in a skirt" can show up any of her imitators. She proved as much during an intimate (200 people) gig Wednesday at Fishtown's funky Kung Fu Necktie. From her earliest days as one of the Ruff Ryders to her own pop-hop hits ("Who's That Girl?") and a klatch of smash collaborations with Gwen Stefani, Eve was always the queen of swagger.
