Gatsby Themed New Year Celebration In Duluth Review
To ring in the 2024 New Year, I didn't have any plans until my wife, thanks to her cousin, decided we were going out.
I shouldn't say I didn't have plans; I assumed our lack of plans meant we would just stay home, cook dinner, maybe have cocktails, and maybe but probably not be awake until midnight.
For about $90 per person, we got the tickets that included dinner instead of just the later evening celebrating which cost a bit less. One thing I appreciate about any event is them helping out a charity, especially a local one, and they did just that by means of a silent auction to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities - Upper Midwest.
The evening included not only dinner, but also games in the form of Blackjack and Roulette which every attendee was given a $500 chip to "gamble" with. At the end of the free gambling, for every $100 you had in chips, you could get a ticket for prize drawings. This added a lot of fun to the night and made the night fly by.
There was also a DJ, dancing instruction, appetizer type snacks, a speakeasy you need a password for, and even themed drinks. I myself had way too many of the oh so good Sidecar cocktails they were slinging, and highly recommend trying if you haven't heard of one.
Overall, it was a nice evening considering I didn't really want to go out. I forget sometimes how fun it is to get dressed up and rock in the New Year with people you care about.
