This year, why not celebrate the New Year locally right here in B-Town? Here’s what we found out about happenings right here in beautiful downtown Burien.
Bistro Baffi: Chef Michael has prepared a four-course meal menu to please the most discriminating palate. Appetizers include his famous stuffed mushrooms, Clams Rockefeller or Caprese. Following, the salad course is Insalata al’ Gusto or Chef Michael’s Caesar Salad. The main course includes two different steaks, Chicken Oscar, the Catch of the Day, and two homemade pastas, plus Risotto with lobster. Dessert includes a choice of Tiramisu, Chocolate Walnut Cake or imported Italian ice creams. They’ve got a huge wine cellar and great selection of after-dinner drinks as well as full cocktail bar. Reservations are recommended. Call 244-0737.
CC’s Lounge: Special dinners and prices are available at CC’s on this New Year’s Eve. For $25/person or $45/couple enjoy your choice of dinners complete with all the fixings: Top Sirloin with Shrimp Skewer, Chicken Cordon Bleu or a Salmon Plate. Dinner will also include a champagne fountain starting at 11:30 and party favors to bring in 2011. CC’s regular Andy Burnett will be on hand playing his mix of contemporary music for your dancing pleasure. Reservations are recommended and we’re told they’re nearly sold out. Call 206-242-0977 to secure your table. Dinner will be served from 6-9pm.
Elliott Bay Brewery: If you want your favorite home brewed suds this night, manager Michael Goldsmith tells us you’d better come early. They’re closing down no later than 9 pm.
Mark Restaurant and Bar: It’s Murder at the Deadwood Saloon. This is another one of their Murder Mystery Dinner parties. They are asking that you come dressed in your best 1880’s attire. You can take part in a murder most foul—maybe even be the corpse!
The cost is $45 per person and includes a Three Course Dinner – Prime Rib and Salmon, Champagne at Midnight and Party Favors – No host bar – plus tax & gratuity.
According to owner Debra George, “the fun starts at 8:30 pm New Year’s Eve. Bring yourself or a group – it is FUN FOR EVERYONE!
For those not so outgoing, we will have a friendly poker game going as part of the murder mystery night.”
Vino Bello Wine Bar: Hosting a New year’s Eve wine tasting with live music. Wine tasting from noon to 9PM, $15 per person. Music by Andy Eades from 5PM-9PM with no cover charge.
Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub: It’s business as usual at Mick’s this New Year’s Eve, but they will have a DJ playing all night and a champagne toast at midnight.
Piranha Joe’s: It’s a Parrot-head extravaganza as Coy and Joe welcome Trop-Rocker Ron Herring playing in the lounge from 9 pm-1 am.
In addition to their regular dinner menu, Joe’s is featuring Steak & King Crab Legs.
And here’s something really great Joe’s is serving a free midnight breakfast for guests that are there from 10pm to midnight.
Tin Room: Dan House told BTB “We’re getting excited about New Year’s Eve! We’ll be celebrating with drink specials, party hats and a champagne toast at midnight. Bring all your friends and be ready for fun!”
He warned us that the Tin Room and Tin Theater will be closed Saturday, Jan 1st so the staff can all nurse their hangovers.
The Tin Theater will be playing that classic film Airplane at 7:30. According to their latest email blast:
“Surely, you’ll want to come watch this tribute to Leslie Nielsen. (Just don’t call us Chirlee.) An airplane crew takes ill. Surely the only person capable of landing the plane is an ex-pilot afraid to fly. But don’t call him Shirley. Remember that the Tin Theater Bar area opens up at 6 PM daily ready to serve you dinner and cocktails before the show”!
Yo’s Bistro: Enjoy a totally Thai New Year’s Eve at Yo’s. Doors will open at 8 pm, there’s a full cocktail bar with a special food menu. Lao and Thai music will be featured. Mayoulee is the guest singer. Plus you can dance in 2011 to the live band.
If it’s a quiet night with Italian fare, both Osteria da Primo and Filiberto’s Cucina Italiana both on 152nd plan dinner as usual.
We also checked in with our friend Hilda at La Costa Restaurant on 153rd. It’s business as usual, which includes Mariachi Monarcas from 6:30-7:30PM.
Elmer’s Pub: Horsehedd, Skwish, and Dyslexic 33 play, starting at 9pm for FREE.. All original music, all local bands.
HiLine Lanes: New Years Eve Bash starts at 6pm with Dinner. At 8pm, there will be a 9 or better bowling competition…. At 9pm (’til Midnight) HiLine will throw in colored pins for Colorama. At Midnight, favors and Champagne (or Cider) will be featured for the toast of 2011. Then a breakfast buffet will be served until 2am. Total cost to Bowl and Eat both meals is $40. Or, one can either bowl OR eat only for $25.
ALSO, from 2pm to 4pm, HiLine Lanes is hosting a JUNIOR NEW YEARS EVE PARTY. Cost is $10 for unlimited bowling (with shoes). Party favors & Munchies will be provided.
“WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE EVERY JUNIOR AGE 18 AND UNDER IN OUR HOUSE FOR FUN…FUN…FUN!!!”
