Rock in New Year’s Eve at ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort & Spa

Sanibel New Year's EveWhere will you choose to spend the last night (New Year’s Eve) of 2016? I’ll be rocking in the New Year at the Crow’s Nest Beach Bar & Grille at ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort & Spa! With a live band, champagne toast, late night bites, shot specials and even a midnight balloon drop, I can’t imagine a better place to ring (or rock) in the New Year.

The general consensus is that 2016 has been rough, and I couldn’t agree more. I’m ready to start the year fresh, but before I welcome in 2017, I really need to let loose and blow the doors off of 2016 with a great New Year’s Eve party.

Starting at 9PM and ending around 2AM, the Crow’s Nest will sell $20 wristbands at the door, which includes champagne, free bites, Jell-O shot specials and a midnight balloon drop. PLUS! Wristbands are $10 off with dinner reservations at Captiva House, where they’re featuring a luxurious and delectable New Year’s Eve menu.

After a bit of drinking and dancing with the live band “Bad Banditos,” I plan to take advantage of some free late night bites, including pork egg rolls, buffalo chicken wings, fried pickle spears and chicken quesadilla rolls (ummm, yum!), which make for the perfect party snacks.

But the real feature I’m looking forward to on New Year’s Eve is the balloon drop. I mean, of course I’ll have to kiss my husband at the ball drop, but after that, forget him! Who doesn’t love a good balloon drop — even Bill Clinton couldn’t resist one at this year’s DNC (see here).

And well, since you’re rocking in the New Year in style, the best option is stay overnight at ‘Tween Waters Inn so that you can enjoy the party, and wake up to 2017 in paradise!

Dreaming of a Foodie Holiday at ‘Tween Waters Inn, Captiva Island

When it comes to the winter holidays, I turn into this complete sentimental sap – listening to carols obssessively and decking the halls with festive abandon.

My husband? He’s more the Grinch to my Cindy Lou Who. But a visit to the ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort & Spa on Captiva Island, Florida, gets even him in the falala spirit. Besides all the fun and original holiday decorations – never try to tell me it doesn’t feel like the holidays in Southwest Florida! – there’s feasts that would put Whoville to shame.

This year’s Captiva House holiday menus are no exception. They balance traditional with creative in visions that beat sugarplums any day. Take the Christmas Eve special menu. Like our customary night-before meal, it includes oysters and other seafood, but with more glam punch than I can manage: baked oysters with gouda and spinach, Chilean sea bass with polenta and lemon beurre blanc, and seafood lasagna, for instance.

Then, come the big day, nothing but a lavish holiday spread will do. More fresh seafood, sweet potato cinnamon bisque, roasted salmon with dill butter, and carved steamship round, ham, and leg of lamb. But save room for all your favorite seasonal sweets.

Wait, it’s not over! There’s a New Year’s Eve gala prix fixe menu with themed dishes such as scallops with strawberry and champagne compote, holiday-spiced pan-seared duck breast, pinot noir braised lamb osso bucco, dessert, and of course, bubbly.

Season’s jolly greetings, season’s fine eating to all!
