Below is a description of our 2016/2017 New Year's Eve celebration.
We expect this year to be just as great!
December 30th:As is customary, we will gather at the Straube’s Eastwood Creek Ranch to toast the next-to-the-last sunset of the year.

Hors d’ouevres will be ample and hearty.
Time: 5:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
December 31st:Begin the countdown with a hearty breakfast served from 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. in our dining room. Tasty individual nibbles will be served in the Great room from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Dinner and Party:
You'll have a special eight-course dinner with a party and champagne toast to follow.
Breakfast ∙ the morning after: 8:30 am - 11:00 am
