Kick the new year off right Pott. Co. style!
If you’re looking for a family event, the best gig in town is the Impact Hill Family New Year’s Eve. They do a ball drop at 7 for the littles and another one at midnight for the older kids. Bring a snack to share and the concession stand will be open, too, otherwise it’s all free! Yes, you heard me: free. They will have laser tag, rollerblading, bounce houses, games, etc. to ring in the new year. Impact Hill is located in Oakland at the former Riverside High School turned nonprofit. We went last year and I can honestly say it is ideal for a family with munchkins! Ours loved it!
There are also lots of restaurants in the area doing evening specials and then moving to adult fun after.
Silos in Treynor will be serving a fried chicken meal early. Later in the evening, they’ll have a DJ and free pizza and champagne to ring in the new year! Can’t go wrong with that!
Minden Bowl will be offering Surf and Turf or Prime Rib for their holiday meal. It’s 2 for $42 for the regular size or 2 for $44 for the large! Love me some Surf and Turf and Prime Rib! How does one decide??
The Station in Hancock will be serving up BOGO appetizers, $8 single topping pizzas, and $2 domestic beers to help you celebrate the evening!
The Bar’N and Grill in Carson will also be offering a steak meal early followed by drink specials, free champagne at midnight and breakfast burritos starting at 12 for those late night munchies!
But if you’re one of those people that likes to dress up, here’s your chance: Tailgators in Oakland will be having their Roaring 20’s Party for New Year’s starting at 8pm. Dress up in your 20’s attire (or not) and ring in the new year! Free glass of champagne at midnight!
Then if you recover early enough from your late night, you can spend your New Year’s Day in a couple of ways!
Impact Sports will be offering a 3-on-3 basketball tournament all day Wednesday for 7th & 8th grade boys and adults wanting to play! Yes, you can register that day! All play will be held at the Riverside High School Gym. Go here for more details.
Or if you’re more of a sit-and-watch-kind, Silos will have the bowl games on all day with $2 Busch Lights and $1 Jell-O shots!
So yes, we will keep you busy in Pott. Co. Be sure to take advantage of the fun!
