Ringing in 2009 in Groovy Green Bay

 

After attending Alyssa’s (allyssa_ob) birthday bash in Minneapolis, Minnesota (blog and photos coming soon), I headed down the highway east to Green Bay where Elle (sweetsummerdaiz) had organized a super New Year’s Eve party.

To begin the evening, eight of us dined at the Radisson Hotel Standing Stone Buffet & Grill. The restaurant served a variety of dishes, but I was most enamored with its prime rib and scrumptious desserts. Our early group consisted of seven lovely ladies and me. I felt a little sorry for the gals, but I was in paradise. J

 

Next, we strolled across the hall to the Oneida Casino:

There, we headed to their nearby main lounge. For New Year’s Eve, the venue featured three rotating bands thoughout the night. We were entertained by:

 

1. James Intveld – until around 11:00 p.m.

2. Dale Watson and his Lonestars – took over and brought us into the New Year.

Soon, we were joined by three other pals, making us a total of 11 wackos. Brady’s presence doubled the guys and increased the fun. We had a blast chatting, laughing, dancing and whooping it up all night long! Everyone was in a festive mood and time rushed by quickly.

 

By a fortunate quirk of events, we got to ring in 2009 twice. The lounge and casino clocks were about 2 minutes apart, so we celebrated the countdown and craziness a couple of times.

 

Later, most of us ambled over to Purcel’s, another casino lounge, and listened to Replica, a Journey tribute band. Everything they played was great; however, it was their version of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” that brought down the house.

Finally, after more mischief, we called it a night. What a wonderful way to start 2009!


Elle has also posted a blog and photos of our New Year’s Eve shenanigans. I stole a few of her fabulous photos to round out my New Year’s Eve account. Make sure to check out: www.travbuddy.com/travel-blogs/47226.
