I’ve enjoyed having the opportunity to talk with some of you about your New Year’s Eve traditions and plans. Many of you like to stay close to home, and others like to enjoy big parties with friends, food and good music.
Now, you can enjoy the best of both worlds!
As I mentioned once before in this column, Fayette TV’s business partners at DiMarco’s Bistro in downtown Uniontown will be partnering with us to host a New Year’s Eve bash.
You won’t have to travel far or spend much money to enjoy a big city atmosphere and top shelf talent. “First Night Fayette,” which gets underway at 10 p.m. (Broadcast starts at 9:30PM), is loosely modeled after celebrations in Pittsburgh and other metropolitan areas.
The very talented Abacus Jones will headline this show with some of your favorite covers spanning multiple years and genres, in addition to their energetic original material.
Plus, we’ve got some of the hottest up-and-coming entertainers: Katelyn Rose Ritenour, Tyler Hough, and Tim Litvin and his band. These young artists, who you may have seen on Going Live with FCTV, Brought to you by Williams, have a fresh sound and are commanding regional and even some national attention.
Admission for the party, which you’re encouraged to purchase in advance at the website FirstNightFayette.com, includes DiMarco’s one-night-only New Year’s Buffet, and a free champagne toast at midnight. Fayette TV will be hosting an interactive live remote broadcast throughout the evening, and we will have prize giveaways. I’m looking forward to seeing many of you there!
After the clock strikes midnight and you catch a few hours of sleep, celebrate New Year’s Day with Fayette TV and a marathon of “Just Cook It,” hosted by Chef Mario Porreca and Bill Alexander. The fun starts at 5 a.m.! If you’re like me, and one of your New Year’s resolutions involves learning to cook better, there will be lots of helpful information for you, presented in a lively manner with a laugh or two sprinkled in for good measure. You may have heard Mario and Bill on their awesome WMBS radio show, but you haven’t had the full “Just Cook It’’ experience until you watch their show on Fayette TV.
Come see us on New Year’s Eve at DiMarco’s and visit with us anytime on Atlantic Broadband cable channel 77. Happy New Year to all!
