The festivities begin at 5:30 PM Sunday, December 30 with a casual gathering at the home of Orchard Hill owners, Pat and Darrell. Our traditional Louisiana Gumbo will be in abundance with appropriate hors d’oeuvres and and a selection of local wines and beers. This happy gathering allows all to acquaint themselves with other party attendees and watch the last sunset of the year from a vantage offering a 180 degree view of San Diego’s distant shoreline.
New Year’s Eve begins with a lavish breakfast buffet and opens a day of hiking, relaxation or visiting with new and old friends in the lodge in front of the fireplace. Traditional hors d’oeuvres will be served between four to five thirty allowing guests sufficient time to return to their rooms to rest and prepare for the Eight O’clock gathering in the Lodge for our signature cocktail: Blushing Rosemary, first introduced last year to rave reviews.
Immediately following will be a multi course dinner beginning with a seafood buffet featuring raw oysters, seafood cocktail and crab cakes. Music with everyone’s favorites, intermittent dancing through to the magic hour with noise makers, hats and an array of pastries, truffles, fruit and cheese.
Cost per couple: $450.00 - plus room (two night minimum) taxes, surcharge gratuity and spirits.
