Welcome 2013 with the ultimate New Year’s Eve party aboard the USS Hornet Museum at Pier 3 in Alameda.
From 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 31 revelers can enjoy live music, a silent auction, cash bars and food concessions, and a midnight countdown with the spectacular view of the Bay Area skyline as a backdrop. Guests will be able to view San Francisco fireworks from the flight deck, weather-permitting.
Opening the night’s festivities will be the Swinging Blue Stars performing “A Tribute to the Andrews Sisters.”
The rest of the evening will be spent dancing to the sounds of 3 O’Clock Jump, a 17-piece band made up of some of the best swing and jazz musicians from the Bay Area. Their musical style blends Big Band songs of the WWII with the Rhumba, Cha Cha Cha and Waltz.
For those needing a refresher, free dance lessons will be provided throughout the evening by Jim Truesdale, a former Fred Astaire instructor.
Tickets for the New Year’s Eve event are $45 to $85 per person and include free parking. Food and drink are not included but can be purchased on board. For information and reservations, call 521-8448, ext. 282.
