We hope you had a great Christmas holiday. Now that that’s behind us we can focus on New Year’s Eve. Yeah! What do you have planned? We are only five days away to the start of 2012 and I can hardly wait! There are so many events going on this New Year’s I thought it would be fun to share some of my top picks near our Orange County apartments, here we go.
This is a great event for those who want to party in style and leave their black ties at home. Throw on your best blue jeans and put on your dancing shoes for a celebration unlike any other. The OC Fair New Year’s Eve Black Party will have multiple stages with tribute bands singing music from the 60’s to the 90’s. There will be a comedy show, dueling piano entertainment, a casino lounge, rides and more. It you want to get your dance on, just jump into the party zone where a DJ will be spinning dance music form the last 5 decades. Did I mention there will be food and beverages galore?!
- Time: 7:30PM – 1:30AM
- Tickets: $40 per person
- Parking: $10 - $20
If you are looking for a family affair, jump on over to Irvine’s Great Park. Not only will this party be rocking with music from the 40’s to present, there will be local dance groups, a disco DJ and a 5-piece band that will rock the night away. Dads can enjoy looking at military vehicles and vintage cars while the kiddies enjoy crafts and carousal rides. Gourmet food vendors will line the park. This is the perfect place for residents at our apartments in Irvine, enjoy!

Now I only recommend this if you are feeling like a baller because it is a tab bit pricey. The Ritz New Year’s celebration starts with a four course meal prepared by Executive Chef Andres Jimenez and then move on to hours of live entertainment. There will be confetti canyons and a midnight champagne toast – all to make a memorable night. This is a great event for residents at our Laguna Niguel apartments!

This event is on the outskirts of OC but close enough to mention. Jump onboard the Queen Mary for a night of food and dancing – if you’re feeling saucy you can make a weekend out of it! There will be seven parties on board this famous lady from jazz, dueling pianos, disco and more. To make your NYE night even better, peek into the sky at 9:00PM and midnight for spectacular firework shows – WOWZERS!

With so many events happening around this great city, I cannot name them all but please share where you will be going to bring in the New Year.
