Ringing in the New Year

Yes, I am skipping head in the holiday scheme of things, but it is already December 20. If you have not made your plans yet for New Year's Eve, there are a few events going on in the area.

Tofflers New Year's Eve with Joel Pingitore and the Play Ground of Sound
Toffler's in New Glarus often features live music, and New Year's Eve is no exception. Their blue moon blacklight party will have live blues inspired by Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn, and there will be free party favors and champagne at midnight. 200 5th Ave., New Glarus. Starts at 9 pm, no cover charge.

New Years Eve Party at the New Glarus Hotel
Ring in the New Year with dinner and entertainment at New Glarus Hotel. They will have a special Dinner Menu that includes Swiss items, Steak dinners, Fish, Chicken, and Combo Dinners with price ranging from $25.00 to $35.00 per dinner. Entertainment will be provided by the Zweifel Brothers with Gary Hendrickson starting at 8:30 pm. Turn your evening into an overnight with a lodging package available in conjunction with Chalet Landhaus.

Old Year's Night Event at Turner Hall
Turner Hall in Monroe will also be hosting a New Year's Eve event. Enjoy their wonderful menu while you celebrate the end of 2008 and look forward to 2009.

There are abundant dining options all over Green County, with something for every taste and budget from Chopsticks in Monroe to The Dining Room at 209 Main in Monticello to Glarner Stube in New Glarus.

You might also be joining friends for an at home celebration like we usually do. You can pick up a hostess gift of micro-brewed beer or quality wine at Brennan's or Beverage Mart to bring along for the evening.

No matter where or how you choose to celebrate, please remember to be responsible. Monroe Taxi is running, or designate a driver. Start 2009 in a fun, but safe way.
