Ring out the Old, Ring in the New
Ring in the New Year from one of Buffalo's great urban vistas and at the same time help the Western New York Book Arts Center grow. This fund raiser event is a great way to celebrate the past with a look to the future of Buffalo's cultural landscape. From the first and second floors of the Book Arts Center you can see the Niagara Mohawk Electric tower from where the ball will drop at midnight. While the masses wait outside in the cold for the ball drop & fireworks, you can have a panoramic view from the second floor or from the exact viewpoint that Charles Burchfield painted his "Buildings and Street Scene":at the corner of Washington St. & Mohawk (the Slotkin Building).
This "1920s Black Tie Optional" New Year's Eve party will have live music by David Kane and food by Bistro Europa. Drinks are also included in the rather reasonable price (for a fundraiser even!) . Reservations are being taken online and limited to only 200 people. This promises to be a fun evening and a good way to get a peek at the WNY Book Arts Center before its formal grand opening in the Spring.
