If “make New Year’s Eve plans” is on your holiday To Do list, the time to act is now. There are a couple venues hosting events in Lake Oswego but they fill up so you want to put the shopping and wrapping aside for a moment and make your reservations. Consider these two options.
Tavern on Kruse. If you want to get all gussied up with someplace local to go, this is your spot. Enjoy a club-like atmosphere while rocking out on the dance floor to the tunes of the StimPak band. Purchase your libations of choice at two bars and enjoy complimentary appetizers and champagne at midnight. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. and the party gets started at 9:00. Limited tickets are $55. 4835 Meadows Road, 503.303.5280.
Gemini Bar and Grill. If you want to get things started a little earlier, make plans at the Gemini Bar and Grill. This popular Lake Oswego hangout will open its doors at 6:00 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and later in the night you’ll find yourself dancing to the sounds of Stump City Soul. Toast in the New Year with free champagne and enjoy free snacks before you head home. Tickets are $50. Pick your reserved seats from the layout online. 456 N. State Street, 503.636.9445.
Wilsonville Family Fun Center. Head down to Wilsonville for an earlier start still…especially if you plan on celebrating with your kids. For $20 a person, you can enjoy unlimited use of Go-Karts, Miniature Golf, the Rock Wall, Batting Cages, Sky Trail Ropes Course, Lazer Tag, Bumper Boats, Kidopolis Playland, the Frog Hopper and $5 Arcade Credit and an all-you-can-eat pizza and soda buffet (served 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p. m. to 7:00 p.m.) Hours: 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. 29111 SW Town Center Loop, Wilsonville, 503.685.5000.
Oregon Garden. Another family-friendly way to ring in the New Year is a visit to the Oregon Christmas Garden in Silverton on its last day of the season. Activities include live music, artisan vendors, ice skating, snowless tubing, a 100 foot long candy cane tunnel, a Biergarten and one million lights. Activities and pricing varies. Night skating and tubing opens at 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. 879 W. Main Street, Silverton.
