Ring in the New Year at the Rivers Club
It’s back for another year-end - the New Year’s Eve Carnival - complete with games, a bounce house, performers, a DJ, and dancing. If you have children, there is no better way to celebrate the close of 2014 than to join us for what proves to be a memorable family night. Just like at a summer carnival, kids will receive tickets to play games and win prizes. (We know you’d love more stuffed animals and trinkets around the house.) The kids sure do love them though!
Rivers Club Membership Director Casey Ellis brings his five-year-old son every year because he loves the carnival games, along with the music from the DJ and dancing with the other kids.
Of course, no carnival is complete without snacks, right? We’ll have it covered with candy, popcorn, cotton candy, fresh squeezed lemonade, pretzels, corn dogs, and snow cones—goodies sure to keep the kids up all night—err…we mean satisfy their appetites. Our mock countdown will begin just before 8 p.m. (the “kids midnight”). We’ve got you covered, too, parents—a bar will be available to serve adult beverages throughout the evening, including wine, craft beers, and specialty cocktails.
Member Jason Lawrence and his friends particularly enjoy the fantastic selection of food at the buffet while dining in a nice, relaxed setting surrounded by families and others having fun.
The cost of the Carnival, which includes dinner and unlimited access to games, is $29.95 per adult; $15.95 for children ages 7-12; and $11.95 for ages 3-6.
For those wanting a more subdued evening, we’re offering a Toast the New Year’s Dinner for adults only that will feature a champagne toast along with a live performance by Jessica Lee from 5:30p.m. until 8. The Club will accept reservations every half-hour, starting at 5:30 p.m. The cost will be $29.95 per adult.
Member Relations Director Erin Sustar notes it’s just the right amount of time to have fun with the family, then head off to another party or celebrate New Year’s at home. Guests will be in the perfect spot downtown to be able to pop over to —Highmark First Night—Pittsburgh’s official countdown to midnight with fireworks.
