Ringing in the New Year

What if you are afraid of the number 13?  How do you cope with next year’s date?????

It’s hard to believe that 2012 is coming to a close.  So much has happened in the last twelve months!  For today, I want to post the New Year’s Eve events that I know about so far.  If you have more, please let me know!  I’m guessing that there will be more to add tomorrow or Monday so come back to check it out!

December 31

There are lots of options in Haywood County and the surrounding area for adults to celebrate the ringing in of the NEW YEAR and at least two for the teens and kids in your life.

Haywood Arts Regional Theatre will have their annual event from 6 until 9 pm at the theatre.  It is a potluck event so bring your favorite dish to share.  The event is open to anyone who loves HART theatre.

Old Stone Inn will be hosting a special dinner with an amazing menu “cooked up” by Chef Terry.  Call 828-456-3333 to make your reservations.

Sid’s On Main in Canton will be hosting a special dinner with live music from Bobby G to ring in the new year.  Call 828-492-0618 to make your reservations for the evening.

Maggie Valley Club will be hosting an event with live music from 45 Cherry and a live ball drop and champagne toast.  Call 828-926-4831 for reservations.

The Classic Wineseller and Angelino’s Piattino Ristorante in Waynesville will have live jazz and dinner.  Call 828-452-6000 for reservations.  The price increases at the door so planning in advance is encouraged.

Balsam Mountain Preserve will be hosting an event in the Boarding House beginning at 8pm and continuing until 1am.  There will be live music with Terry Lee and the G.T.’s  along with an awesome dinner menu, desserts and cigars.  There will be a midnight toast and door prizes.  Call for reservations at 828-631-1000.

Smoky Mountain Sk8way will have an all-night skate beginning at 6pm.  Lots of activities and fun for the entire family.  There will be party favors and food.  An open climbing wall and pool table will be available.  There are two end times: 10:30pm for those who want to party elsewhere (or just can’t make it all night) and 6am.  The doors close at 10:30 so no one goes outside without their parent.  Check out their Facebook page for more details.

The Factory in Franklin will host family activities until 2am.

From a little farther away but still a moving event, the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad will be hosting an event for railroad enthusiasts.  The train departs at 9pm from Bryson City.  Call for more details or check out their Facebook page.

January 22

Altrusa Annual Soup and Cornbread. The funds raised from this event go to scholarships for Haywood county students. Each year Altrusa awards about $8000 in scholarships and all these monies come from the sales at the Soup and Cornbread.  The event is Tuesday January 22nd.  Tickets are $8.00.

January 24

Haywood County Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals will be hosting their first professional development event of the new year on January 24 at 8am at Bethea Welcome Center.  Contact the Chamber or join them on Facebook for more details.  Andrew Sanderbeck of People Connect Institute will be the guest speaker.

Books, Bikes, Soap and Art plus music and wine!

A collection of reports from area organizations, shops, restaurants and hangouts. There is always something to do around here! Plus the fall color is still outstanding in a lot of areas even with snow capped mountains and skiing!

Great Smoky Mountains Association November 9 Fall Color Report

Some very impressive areas of fall color linger at the park’s lower elevations (below 3,000’). Scarlet oak, northern red oak, the birches, sumac, and spicebush are especially vibrant. At the higher elevations, fresh snow crowns Mt. Le Conte and the Appalachian Trail.

Suggested drives include Little River Road, Cades Cove, Gatlinburg Bypass, the Foothills Parkway East (near Newport and Cosby), the Foothills Parkway West (near Townsend), The Foothills Parkway North (between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge—the “Spur”) and Cataloochee Valley.

Suggested trails and hiking destinations include Mingus Creek Trail, Cucumber Gap Loop, Old Settlers Trail, Deep Creek Trail, Gatlinburg Trail, Oconaluftee River Trail, and Abrams Falls.

Witch-hazel, the last flowering tree of the season, is in bloom.
