“Stardust” tickets $80 per person, $150 per couple
“Golden Nugget” four course dinner tickets, $30 per person
This New Year’s Eve marks the third annual “Bootlegger’s Ball” at The Red Canary. Following in past tradition, the evening will embody a Vegas-like feel complete with two floors of (play money) casino gaming: three blackjack tables, two craps tables and one roulette table, complete with dealers.
Upon arriving, guests wishing to “strike-it-rich” will receive $5,000 in gambling money. The individual that collects the most winnings by the end of the night will be awarded a 42-inch plasma HD flat screen television! Other gamblers don’t dismay, many other prizes will be given out throughout the night.
Complimentary passed appetizers and DJ-spun music will kick-off the high-energy evening at 9 p.m., which is also the time the premium open bar begins (package ends at 3 a.m.). The top shelf bar service will include Red Bull, premium liquors, cocktails, beer, wine and shots. As 2012 approaches, a complimentary champagne toast will be served, along with roarin’ 20s party favors. The fee per couple is $150, individual guests are $80.
For revelers looking to dine before getting lucky in the casino, Chef Daniel Tolentino has created a pre-party, “Golden Nugget” dinner menu that is only available to those attending the 2011 “Bootlegger’s Ball: Vegas Edition” bash. Table reservations may be made between 7 and 8 p.m. The four course menu is priced at $30 per guest. (Hint: this is a great way to secure a booth or table for the entire night!)
