Rock in the New Year at AvantGarden -Free House Party, DJ & Dancing!

New Year's Eve Party at AvantGarden Get ready for the hottest New Year's Eve Party in Houston! Come join Houston Single Friends as we ring in 2010 in style! We have arranged use of the beautiful and romantic Avantgarden, a two-story historic house built in 1906, and completely restored in 2006. It is one of the very last remaining midtown/lower Westheimer structures surviving the relentless erasure of historic buildings from Houston's collective memory. Avantgarden is now transformed into a lounge and dance floor with a full bar downstairs, and a dance floor on the second floor for a night of dancing, a balcony overlooking a beautiful outdoor courtyard with plenty of tables for relaxing and socializing. It has a warm, intimate and relaxed atmosphere. It lends itself perfectly to a night of flirting, mingling and partying!!!

We are catering barbecue brisket and chicken dinners for $12, cash only. (No worries, the bar accepts credit cards and if you open a tab, they can give you cash back for your meal.) Proceeds from concessions will help to defray part of the cost of hosting the party. The plate consists of brisket or chicken, and 2 sides, dessert, and your choice of iced tea, or lemonade. We have use of this stunning venue from 9:00pm till 2:00am! This will be a night you won't forget! Dress Code: Nightclub to Festive Attire Drink Specials/ Two Bars! Valet Parking: $6 Tickets:
FREE! Tell all your single friends to RSVP to this FUN and FREE New Year's Eve Party! ~ Dorothy Greeters: Dorothy, Natalie, Arash, Brigid, Akhil, and Jennifer. AvantGarden's">AvantGarden's MySpace:

    Fun time. Would be nice if music was heard throughout the building. Dance floor was tiny. Lots of good conversation.

    Great! Great!! I had a lot of fun and danced most of the night. I met a lot of great people. The event could not have been better for me. I want to thank Dorothy and all the assistant organizers for this event. I also agree with the Hall of Fame nomination! Had a blast. It was nice to reconnect with old friends and meet some new ones. It's going to be a great 2010 with more exciting events to come!!

    This has bin a very difficult year for me. Two very dear friends had lost loved ones. One a father and the second a very young sister. I made up my mind to attend at the very last minute. A great choice it was. I got my mind off the sadness and had so much fun. For me it was just what the doctor ordered. I had the chance to enjoy the company of some friends that I had not seen in a while. I had a few drinks and danced the night away with a incredibly beautiful woman. So once again I am grateful for all the hard work that goes into planing these events. Keep up the good work Dorothy. I don't know how often you hear this but there are a lot of people out there that without meet up would be home alone. So I would like to say thank you and wish you a Very Happy & Healthy New Year.

    I'm with you, Noemi. Good riddance to 2009. May the blue moon tonight be an indicator of good luck for us all in 2010!

    December 31, 2009

  • Noemi

    Good-bye 2009! Helllooo 2010! Take the time to go outside and look at the moon tonight. First Blue Moon on Dec 31st in 20 years! Since a complete cycle of the moon is 29.5 days, if you get a full moon at the beginning of a month, it is possible to get another full moon at the end. This is the case now, December 2nd and on the 31st. Having a blue moon on New Years Eve is even rarer, occurring every 19 years. The last time was in 1990, and the next one will be in 2028
