Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 31. There will be assorted cheeses, fresh fruits and a chocolate fountain available, with entertainment by pianist Paul Penning from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Dinner is served at 6 p.m. The menu will include the chef’s specialty salad; warm rolls and butter; prime rib and lobster tail; twice-baked potato; fresh vegetables; the chef’s signature dessert; and a complimentary souvenir champagne flute.
Music by Rhythm f/x starts at 8:15 p.m. and continues until 12:30 a.m. The distinctive repertoire and versatility of Rhythm f/x are nothing short of astounding when it comes to the group’s accomplished vocalists and instrumentalists. It is an energetic dance band that presents a resourceful mix of music, from animated dance groove, high-energy rock, top 40, disco and funk to smooth, sophisticated standards with amazing vocals from four band members.
