NEW YEAR’S EVE IN a Santa Fe NM Hotel
By now you’ve had a couple of days to relax and rejuvenate your self after the hustle and bustle of Christmas. So…..are you ready to ring in the new year Santa Fe style? Whether you like to party hardy into the wee hours of the New Year, have a quiet dinner with family and friends, or take a midnight train ride into the high country, Santa Fe New Mexico has it all.
If a relaxing night of classical music is your idea of a great way to ring in the New Year, then listen up. Visit the Lensic Theatre in Santa Fe for a holiday concert featuring selections such as Prokofiev Piano Concert No. 3 and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. You can visit the Lensic’s website at www.lensic.org or call their box office at 1-505-988-1234 for tickets. The performing arts center located at211 W. San Francisco Street might just be the perfect way to spend a relaxing evening.
Not exactly in the mood for classical music, you still have plenty of options. You can enjoy a New Year’s Eve Party at the Second Street Brewery at The Railyard where they will be featuring the music of Todd and the Fox and the restaurant will be serving holidays specials all night long. The best part…..no cover charge.
If the dazzling Santa Fe night life is more your style, then head on down to the Rouge Cat and attend the Paparazzi Glitter Ball complete with a red carpet, midnight champagne toast and party favors. The evening’s entertainment will be hosted by DJ Oona along with lighting and decorations. Please visit www.rougecat.com for more information.
The Cowgirl celebrates New Year’s Eve starting with an afternoon concert from 2 to 5 p.m. by Russel Sharf’s Jazz Explosion. At 8 p.m., the New Year’s Eve Party begins, featuring the music of Chango, an award winning up and coming cover band hailing from right here in Santa Fe. If dancing the night away to songs from the Cars, Michael Jackson, Kings of Leon and Prince sounds good to you, then visit www.cowgirlsantafe.com for more information and tickets.
How about snuggling with your snow bunny on a late night train ride through the high country desert? Head on out to the Santa Fe Southern Railways New Year’s Eve Party Train featuring hors d’oeuvres, desserts and a champagne toast at midnight. You will depart from the train depot at 10:00 p.m, ring in the New Year at midnight and return safely at approximately 12:30 p.m. Grab a cup of hot cocoa, a few cuddling blankets and head on out to the train for a ride you won’t soon forget.

And the BEST part is that when you have partied till you can’t party any more, come back to your beautiful room at the Comfort Suites Santa Fe NM Hotel, climb in your comfortable toasty bed and dream till its January 1, 2012.
