Party down

Many residents to bring in new year at home


“We are a family owned business and we like to spend time with our family on holidays,” said Dave Froehlich, owner of the Old Mill Winery in Geneva. He said the restaurant will be open till 9 p.m., giving people plenty of time to get home to watch the ball drop.

Quinn’s Bar and Grill on Route 45 in Austinburg Township has a similar plan with specials available from 4 to 9 p.m. featuring lobster and filet mignon. “We kind of close up and have everyone get home,” he said.

Froelich said the Old Mill Winery celebrated the New Year Saturday evening with a special party, complete with party hats. He said the main party is always held on the Saturday closest to New Year’s Eve.

Austinburg Nursing and Rehabilitation Center followed a similar plan with a resident New Year’s party Sunday afternoon, complete with non-alcoholic champagne.

“They (the residents) love a party no matter what the day. They love the music; being able to listen to old songs that bring back good memories,” said activities director Cindy Becker.
