Join us for our second-ever ELEGANT New Year's Eve Bash at the classy and contemporary Illinois Beach Resort, for a tremendous package deal! We had stellar reviews from the cozy dozen or so who joined us last year, and their entire party this year is again limited to 275 people and held in their expansive Grand Vista Ballroom, with the entire east wall made of glass and overlooking lovely Lake Michigan. Although this is considered a black-tie affair, men are certainly welcome in suits or jackets with ties, ladies may dress in whatever they choose...an evening gown, cocktail dress, dressy slacks or skirt with a nice top...you get it! Here's what the total price of just $90 per person INCLUDING ALL TAXES AND GRATUITY covers:
The evening begins at 6pm for cocktail hour and appetizers, with OPEN BAR ALL EVENING. A plated dinner is served at 7pm, with WINE SERVICE included. DJ music will be playing nonstop, and their dance floor is huge! At midnight you'll receive champagne, party favors and enjoy a massive balloon drop!
Seating is by round tables of 10, and I have reserved ours in advance. To purchase your ticket, call[masked] and press O (operator); BE SURE YOU SAY YOU WANT TO BE AT THE PATTY HOOK TABLE! They'll take your credit card information and your ticket will be held at the door when you arrive. You MUST prepay this as it often sells out! I already have my ticket and you are responsible for getting yours. There is a 72-hour cancellation policy. THERE IS NO MEETUP FEE FOR THIS EVENT!
So...open bar all evening, wine service with a fabulous 4-course dinner, appetizers first, DJ, dancing, decorations, champagne, party favors and a balloon drop, taxes, gratuity...all for $90! They also offer an overnight package deal for 2, which includes 2 dinner packages, an overnight hotel stay at the resort, AND an expansive brunch buffet the next morning...this costs $325 plus tax. Call them for more details; that's all I know!
I hope you can join me to ring in the next new and fabulous year!
