2006 New Years Eve
What are you doing New Year's Eve?
In Cape May, you have many options.
If you feel like really putting on the ritz, you can head over to Congress Hall's Glitter Ball - black tie optional - $150 per person.
The festivities start with cocktails at 7PM, and include a five course dinner, dancing to The JDR Dance Band and of course, the requisite champagne toast at midnight.
Get an Early Start
Many other restaurants in town are offering special prix fixe menus for New Year's. If you're willing to forego the late seating and dine early, you can save a few dollars.
For instance at the Mad Batter, you can get a three course dinner between 5 and 7PM for $55. That includes a complimentary glass of champagne and dinner music by
acoustic guitar. Seatings starting at 9PM are 4 course dinners and cost $70.
At The Merion Inn you can order a la carte from the special New Year's Eve Menu if you're seated by 5PM. You can even bring the kids. There are party hats and noisemakers for all - and a practice midnight countdown at 6:30PM - perfect for all you early birds. The three course 7PM seating is $75 per person and the 5 course 9:30PM seating is $100 per person. Pianist George Mesterhazy will be playing his Steinway all night.
Any restaurant serving dinner this week will be open New Year's Eve. And chances are the earlier you dine, the less expensive it will be.

If you opt to stay home on this oh so busy night, you don't have to sacrifice culinary pleasures. You can share a luscious cheese tray from Seaside Cheese Co. with some close friends. The trays, which feature a variety of imported cheeses, are $20 to $150, depending on size.
Add a bottle of champagne and you have a party.
Have a Happy New Year!!
