Looking for last-minute New Year’s Eve plans? Look no further than the Hudson Valley’s eastern Dutchess County!


Start the festivities early at The Lantern Inn in Wassaic. NY. They are hosting a Year-End Social nodding back to the days of rebellious dance moves and spiked milkshakes. Come on out to listen to Graham Tichy and the New Lowdown. The band specializes in the mid-20th century’s classic songs: 50s & 60s Rock and Roll, 30s & 40s Jazz, even Honky Tonk and Rhythm and Blues.  Enjoy the music along with The Lantern’s delicious a la carte menu from 4-11 pm. Make sure to wear your finest 1950s full skirt and cardigan sweater or white-Ts, and break-out the Converse. There’s no cover, but you do need to RSVP to attend. Click here for more info:
