New Year’s Eve Bash in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Only Realized Skyscraper
Ring in the New Year the “Wright” way at PriceTowerArtsCenter with a great community event in the heart of downtown Bartlesville on December 31, 2012. The Olive Drop has become an annual tradition and this year promises to be just as memorable.
“This year we’re changing things up,” said Timothy Boruff, executive director. “We will take advantage of time between exhibitions to offer a rare opportunity for party goers to ring in 2013 in our gallery.”
Festivities begin at 10:00 p.m. on the ground level in the Arts Center gallery, 510 Dewey Ave, with live music by Tulsa’s After Dark Trio. Party favors, appetizers and cash bar are available to all event guests. Cheer your friends at midnight with a complimentary glass of champagne, as the Olive Drop countdown is unveiled. Hang out until 1:00am in Copper Bar on the 15th floor of the Price Tower, or stay till morning and rent a room at Inn at Price Tower.
Brunch is served on New Year’s Day in Copper on the 15th floor from 10:00 a.m. to noon. It’s complimentary to Olive Drop Inn guests and tickets to the public are available for purchase at $7 each or two for $12. Menu includes homemade quiche, fresh fruit, freshly-prepared pastries, juices, coffee and mimosas upon request. The museum will be closed on New Year's Day.
Tickets for the dance party are on sale now for $20 in advance and $25 at the door and this event is sponsored by Bartlesville Monthly Magazine. The outdoor drop is open to all for free, so watch from your car or on the grounds of Price Tower as the huge green “olive” is lowered at midnight.
