Happy New Year!
Have you decided what you’re doing for New Year’s Eve yet? A fancy dinner out or maybe you’ll be hosting a party at home? It’s coming up fast and even though Saint Nick hasn’t visited yet, now’s the time to start planning.
Consider this: an evening at a winery where food, wine, entertainment, music, champagne is all included. Where is this, you may ask? Why, at Ponte Winery’s annual New Year’s Eve Extravaganza, of course. For the 5th year in a row, Ponte is going all out and hosting a New Year’s party to end all New Year’s parties. Every year the event revolves around a specific theme and this year is no exception: the 2007 New Year’s theme is City Nights. Expect food, decor and music inspired by some of the most exciting cities in the world. Ponte’s Food and Beverage Manager and Executive Chef have dreamt up a menu inspired by “street food.” Think hot dogs and soft pretzels with a twist. Read on for the full menu. The full Ponte wine bar will be open all night and there will be a champagne toast at midnight, not to mention dancing, dancing dancing! Tickets are still available and can be purchased at Ponte Winery’s website. Bring your friends and family-the more the merrier!
