Lanier Islands’ New Year’s Eve Celebration
Lanier Islands’ New Year’s Eve Celebration can keep you out of jail, save you $20,000 and prevent your house from burning to the ground!
Come to Lanier Islands for their New Year’s Eve Celebration to kick 2017 to the curb and welcome 2018 with open arms and deluded optimism.
Worried about getting a babysitter for the kids? Smart. If you could find a babysitter (which you cannot), you would have to put a Star Wars force field around your liquor cabinet, hide your jewelry and abandon any hope of not finding roaches smoldering in your carpet when the police contact you about the insane party being held at your home — as they read you your rights and take you downtown to the slammer.
Bring the kids to Lanier Islands’ New Year’s Eve Celebration! You’ll probably pay less to have them nearby (and chaperoned) than you would to get a sitter (or pay for bail).
The resort will continue to offer a separate event at Legacy Lodge for the children of overnight guests – complete with music, games, a movie, arts & crafts, kid-friendly dinner, loads of fun and midnight balloon drop – all under the watchful eye of the Islands’ team of Legacy Kids counselors. As the parents return to the Lodge via shuttle following their own night of revelry at Peachtree Pointe, they can collect their kids and head off to bed at the resort’s flagship hotel – proud member of the Southern Living Hotel Collection.
Spend the night at Lanier Islands and have that extra glass of bubbly at midnight without winning the Blue Light Special from the law when you’re pulled over for Driving Under the Influence. Even if you don’t lose your job, you’ll help fund your lawyer’s trip to some sunny paradise while you’re peeing into a cup at a random drug check, before you report to the court to prove you’re not always drunk. If you do foolishly choose to drink and drive and you justly get busted, give the police and extra burst of joy by saying, “You can’t do this to me! Do you know who I am?!!”
On New Year’s Eve, leave the driving to the sober shuttle drivers at Lanier Islands and rock the night away.
“We are so excited about New Years Eve at Lanier Islands this year,” said Missy Burgess, Director of Public Relations and Sponsorships for the Islands. “It’s always a great party every year, but as word spread, we quickly saw that we were outgrowing our Grand Ballroom. When we decided to move it to Peachtree Pointe – a popular destination for weddings and receptions of up to 500 guests – we knew we had to make a special event even MORE special. Party Nation is THE party band in Atlanta, so we know they will really add to the fun factor. Add to that, great food and drink plus fireworks to end the evening, and we believe it will be one of our biggest and most memorable New Year’s Eve celebrations to date.”
Remember that old mind teaser that goes like this? “If two people get on a bus going east from Albany and 750,000 travelers are stranded when Atlanta’s airport blacks out, how many people got off the train in Des Moines?”
The Wise Ones at Lanier Islands decided to shift around where some parties will be and where some parties won’t be. My advice? Don’t try to figure out who lands in Buffalo. Just go. Have a good time. Enjoy the fireworks at midnight and whatever fun you can muster later.
Happy New Year!
