365 Things to Do in Worcester County- Celebrate New Year EVERYWHERE. Well I want to wish everyone a happy new year. Today is the first day of 2011. I am not in my beloved Worcester County. I am in Albany with my family. But New Year can be celebrated all over the world, and is.
I am staying at Crowne Plaza Hotel in the heart of the Business District in Albany. The hotel is well appointed with features like indoor pool, excersise room and hot tub. My reason for visiting is to be with the family. The family's reason is because my husband has a Scrabble Tournament in the Hotel for 5 days. Yes, 5 days of scrabble.
Last night, New Year's eve, he finished by 6:00 pm and we were able to go out together for dinner to Olive Garden and then watched a movie, Centurion ( I thought it was watchable). Twenty minutes before the crucial moment, we turned on Dick Clark's Rock n Eve and watched the ball drop. We toasted the new year with Cherry flavored "Champagne", the non alcoholic version of the popular libation.
The cool thing about the New Year's Celebration at Crowne Plaza is the Pow Wow held downstairs. I took a brief video of the vendors set up before it began. I am still trying to convince my youngest to go and see the activities that will be running the week end.
This is world wide one of everyone's 365 Things to Do in Worcester County- Celebrate New Year EVERYWHERE.
