A good New Year's Resolution should be hard to achieve, which may explain why so many people spend January trying to scale Mt. Everest naked. Ring in 2011 an easier way with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a ticket to the New Year's Eve Bash at the Lighthouse (a $25 value). The Lighthouse is located right on the bay in Dewey Beach, off of Coastal Highway.
A classic Dewey Beach party bar, the Lighthouse expects approximately one thousand carousers for its New Year's bash. The night begins with hors d'oeuvres from the Lighthouse's seafood and pub food menu. Once the crowd rolls in, dance/rock cover band Element K takes the stage to deliver cover songs, a break from their past five-part glockenspiel harmony albums. As the clock ticks down on the two-month anniversary of Halloween, join fellow merrymakers in a champagne toast, the cost of which is included with your ticket. A live DJ will spin all night and the party won't stop till 2012, or 1 a.m., whichever comes first.
The bar at the Lighthouse features beer, wine and specialty drinks like the signature Orange Crush, a mixture of fresh-squeezed orange juice, vodka, triple sec and Sprite. Lighthouse has onsite parking and is just a few feet from a stop on the Jolly Trolley. Their patio overlooks the bay, and revelers need only hop down the steps to explore and interact with Dewey Beach's temporally non-linear sand worm population.
