Get on Board the Buckhorn Inn Belle!

Are you familiar with the Buckhorn Inn Belle?  For New Year’s Eve 2018 we will transform the Buckhorn Inn dining room into a Mississippi River steamboat gambling salon.  We look forward to welcoming our guests to our celebration of the year that was and the year that will be aboard the Buckhorn Inn Belle!  As we cruise down the Mississip, we promise not to make any bights in the bend too sharply and no gentlemen will be asked to back-and-belly any heavy freight.  Festive attire is encouraged for this night to remember.

The Buckhorn Inn Belle will be piloted by Sharon Mellor for the evening.

Our own Sharon Mellor will be in the pilot house for the evening.

The evening will begin at 6:00 pm with champagne, hors d’oeuvres and Ragtime and Dixieland piano.  Our house gambler, Two-Eyed Jack, will be on hand to deal you a hand of poker for prizes to both winners and losers.  Dinner, presented by Chef Frank Downs, will be served at 7:00 p.m.

During dinner, watch out for any card sharps who may try sleight of hand at your table–we understand rounders may be about.  And remember that all Gamblers and Fancy Women must register with the captain before the steamboat leaves the dock!

We Are Looking Forward to the New Year

 

At Buckhorn Inn we will be spending the last evening of 2018 aboard the “Buckhorn Inn Belle”, dancing, dining, and toasting the year that was and the year that will be. What will be ahead of us in 2019?

The Chinese Zodiac year begins on February 5. We will be leaving the Year of the Dog and entering the Year of the Pig. Predictions say that this will be a year of good fortune and luck! The zodiac says that the Pig attracts success in all spheres of life and 2019 will be a time of joy, friendship, success, and love.
We will take that!

On the other hand, Nostradamus prophesized that we will be more open socially and extend our circle of friends this year. However, many parts of the United States may be subject to earthquakes and hurricanes in 2019.  Oh no!

We are hoping your new year will be warm and wonderful!

What will 2019 have in store?

Events Scheduled for the New Year

If, you are looking for sure things, rather than predictions and prophecies, we note that 2019 has been designated as the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements by the United Nations General Assembly. During the next 12 months the United Kingdom will leave the European Union. Emperor Akihito of Japan will abdicate from his position. 

On the sports front the Cricket World Cup will be held in England and Wales, the FIFA Women’s World Cup will be held in France, the Pan American Games will be held in Lima Peru, and the 2019 Rugby World Cup will be held in Japan. The Super Bowl will be played at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.  In October climbing Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Australia will be banned. So if this has been on your bucket list and you have not done it yet, you are sadly out of luck. In December a solar eclipse will be visible from South Asia.

We are wishing you and yours much happiness!
