While some will ring in the new year at various events in Seattle, others can find bubbly champagne and dance into the wee hours of the morning right here in Central Kitsap.
If you dont have plans for New Years Eve, you might try ringing in 2008 at one of these hot spots.
Silverdale Beach Hotel
The Silverdale Beach Hotel is offering A Night at the Deuces Wild from 7 p.m. Dec. 31 to 2 a.m. Jan 1, 2008. People can come dressed in their best 1920s mobster attire and dance the night away to tunes from that era. Hotel General Manager Chris Koebelin said the 1920s theme was something new and exciting for the hotel to take on for New Years Eve.
It just came as something that would be different and something fun, Koebelin said. This gives people more of an incentive to dress up and see different things.
Throughout the night, guests are invited to solve the murder mystery, Bye Bye, Bucca. A group of actors will act out a murder during the New Years event and the guests in attendance must figure out who the murderer is.
Its going to be a really fun night, said Rissa Stanley, rooms division manager at the Silverdale Beach Hotel.
Guests also can partake in wine and cheese tasting as well as play cards at the all-night casino tables set up inside the hotel which will feature fake play money and prizes.
Maybe for someone who doesnt like to sit and watch musicians play they can go play poker, Koebelin said.
The Silverdale Beach Hotel A Night at the Deuces Wild costs $350 per couple which includes a nights stay at the hotel and breakfast the next morning. Dress is semi-formal and should resemble the 1920s style of clothing.
