New York New Year's Eve On Monday, December 31, Gualala Arts concludes its 51st year with the New York New Year's Eve Party that includes a catered dinner, complimentary champagne and dancing. The all-inclusive price is $50 per person. The doors open at 6:00 p.m.

The evening starts with a cocktail hour and hors d'oeuvres from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. with offerings from the no-host martini bar that also sells single malt scotch, microbrew beers, fine wines and "mocktails" throughout the evening.

Fred Adler, KTDE radio personality, will provide background music from his library of classic New Year's Eve musical standards.

Gelati Pazzo Marco A lovingly home-made buffet dinner prepared by Gualala Arts Culinary Guild will be set out at 7:00 p.m. Dessert will feature delicious gelato from our generous neighbors at Pazzo Marco Creamery.

Live coverage of New York's Times Square ball dropping will be simulcast on the big screen to bring in the New Year at 9:00 p.m. west coast time.

New York New Year's Eve Those who want to continue celebrating can stay and dance to outstanding danceable recorded music selected by Roxanne Claflin again this year, while the less adventurous go home to a good night's sleep.

One of the truly enjoyable ways to plan the evening is purchasing a table of six or eight, then sharing the costs with everyone. If you are more adventurous and like to meet new people, buy single or couple tickets and be seated with others who enjoy our beautiful coastal lifestyle. Bringing in the New Year among friends is one of the joys of living in a small close-knit community.

Ticket purchases, preferred by December 29, go to Brown Paper Tickets or call them at (800) 838-3006. To purchase in person, visit the Gualala Arts Center or Dolphin Gallery.

Those who wish to form a group and reserve a table of six or eight may make arrangements by calling the Arts Center office at 884-1138 or in person at the Gualala Arts Center.

is open weekdays 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and weekends from noon to 4:00 p.m.
