With New Year’s Eve only days away, for those of us yet to make plans, time is definitely running a bit short.
Luckily, there are opportunities still to be found in Nassau and Suffolk counties, ranging from local pubs hosting laid-back get-togethers to upscale galas that are more ballroom than barroom – and in one instance, the personalities of both those possibilities can be found in one event.
On Tuesday, Dec. 31, The Coral House in Baldwin is throwing “A Mystical New Year’s Eve,” a year-end bash that kicks off at 8 p.m. Tickets are $110, and include a 5-hour open bar, passed hors d'oeuvres, food stations and an upscale sit-down dinner (to be followed by dessert and a champagne toast at midnight).
However, before thinking that this soiree is simply a chance to fine-dine, know that the night’s entertainment will be live music from The Mystic, currently one of Long Island’s busiest party-scene cover bands.
The Coral House: 70 Milburn Ave., Baldwin, 516-223-6500
