Chateau on the Lake Resort
, Spa and Convention Center in Branson, Missouri
will host one of the Midwest’s largest New Year’s Eve celebrations beginning at 7:00 p.m., Monday, Dec. 31, 2007 and featuring a colossal fireworks display over Table Rock Lake
to culminate an evening of fine gourmet dining, live music and champagne toasts.
The New Year’s Eve celebration starts in the Chateau’s 32,000-square foot Great Hall with a festive hors d’oeuvres reception and cash bar at 7:00 p.m., followed by a plated dinner of Filet Mignon and fresh Atlantic Shrimp, and topped off with one of the Chateau’s signature hand-made specialty desserts, all presented by Executive Chef Anthony J. Burke, CEC and his team of culinary experts.
For a more intimate dining experience, the Chateau Grille will serve a special five-course New Year’s Eve holiday meal along with their regular menu selections. Reservations are strongly advised.
At 9:00 p.m., the popular Gary Myer’s Band will take the stage in the Great Hall and rock the night away with dance favorites from the 70s and 80s, with a little R & B added to the mix. Guests in the quaint Library Lounge will be treated to an evening of top-notch live jazz music, a roaring fire, an award-winning wine, beer and cocktail menu and complimentary party favors — all with no cover charge.
To signal to guests in the Great Hall that it’s time to bid adieu to 2007, the party hats and horns, champagne and a giant balloon droop will roll out just before midnight.
In keeping with the Chateau’s signature grand style, the resort will present a spectacular fireworks display just after midnight for hotel guests and thousands of spectators whose tradition is to watch from boats on Table Rock Lake, or at one of the popular viewing locations along Highways 165 and 265.
No New Year’s celebration would be complete at the Chateau without their famous New Year’s Day Champagne Brunch featuring dozens of traditional breakfast items, along with carved meats, shellfish, cheeses, salads and decadent desserts. The Chateau’s Dixieland Band serenade during brunch is sure to inspire a few New Year’s resolutions. Brunch runs from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Chateau Grille. Reservations are suggested, but not required.
To make this New Year’s Eve celebration safe and enjoyable, the Chateau is offering several overnight packages starting at just $399 per couple (including tax and service charges), which includes admission to the Great Hall Party, two drink tickets, gourmet dinner for two, fireworks display and one night in a double room.
