New Year's Eve Party at the WaterColor Inn | A Benefit for the Seaside Rep
After last year's awesome party, WaterColor is back with another amazing benefit for the Seaside Repertory Theatre. The event is going to be better than ever. Featuring spectacular lighting, each corner of this party is sure to impress. With the talented Dread Clampitt playing in the outside tent, the party also features four bars, an "after party" with DJ EJ, and a wide assortment of great items for the silent auction to benefit the Seaside Rep. In conjunction with Seaside, there will be an awesome fireworks show off the Gulf of Mexico.

Bump is right! I think I am slowly coming out of the Christmas fog and can think about this week's holiday schedule!
What a fun week to be in SoWal, and what a great party to close out 2009. Last year's event was a great mix of locals and visitors, and we look forward to seeing familiar and new faces this year! Bringing a warm coat to go outside and watch the fireworks, and I am really intrigued by the "featuring spectacular lighting" part....
So round up your crew of friends, family, total strangers- whoever you want to hang out with on NYE, and head over to Watercolor.

My mom is in town with her gaggle of girls -- they are thinking about going to this party. Is there a particular dress? Anyone willing to keep their eye on them to make sure they stay in line? No? Ok, well then take pictures, please!!

There's no particular dress code, probably along the lines of resort casual/chic/comfortable. Whatever that means to you

Thanks everyone- the party was a great success! And I am so happy it wasn't too cold to watch the fireworks outside at midnight- the Watercolor boardwalk was the perfect spot.
Happy New Year!

Why did the band stop playing at mid-night ?
(I can see stopping for the fireworks, but they packed up after that ?)
I would have really been nice to be able to enjoy the band until 2 am.
In fact we (14 in our group) did not get to see them at all because we were eating dinner
at fish out of water until mid-night. When the band stopped
playing the outside tent died. This part of the event could have been
handled better. I have never been to a new years eve party where the main
event/band just stopped playing at mid-night ?
With this being said, I am very glad the event raised a lot of money for the Seaside Rep.

i agree wholeheartedly with peter. and to add to the complaint was the "prom-like" atmosphere that the dj room had to offer. i understand that the party ONLY was said to go until 2am, but on the poster it was implied that dread clampitt and all other ammenities the party had to offer would be available until 2. if someone would have told me that the band was going to stop basically when the celebrating is supposed to start (the beginning of the new year), i would have made plans elsewhere.
and the term "after-party" implies that there is a party after the original 9-2am scheduled party, not after midnight. the event was for a good cause, but is it wrong to feel like i got hosed a little?
