The Night Owls invite all Riderwood residents as well as their families and friends to a New Year’s Eve party on December 31. Welcome in 2020 with music and friends and a simulcast of the ball-drop in Time Square in New York City.
Music will be provided by the Retro-Rockets, a six-person band recently recognized as one of “Baltimore’s Best” bands for music of the 40s through the 70s. Come with your requests for favorite dance music including the cha-cha, the waltz, the Twist, and even line-dancing.
There will be a full cash bar, as well as hors d’oeuvres along with a champagne toast at midnight.
The festivities will be from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. in the MST Maryland Hall ballroom. Doors will open at 9:00 p.m. Bus service will be available until 12:30 a.m.
Tickets are $30.00 each which can be paid by cash, check, or Riderwood voucher. Tickets will be on sale December 5, 12, 17, and 19 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. each day in the dining room lounges. Tables for four or ten can be reserved (give one name for the table reservation).
