’Twas the last night of ’12

Three! Two! One day until 2012 ends and everyone everywhere tips their hats to the year 2013. West Texans will party with the best of them around Odessa and in cities nearby. If you don’t have plans now – the night is still young. And if you’re not into the party scene, find your comfiest PJs, put in a good DVD before ball drops in New York City and pop open a bottle of Martinelli’s apple cider. Cheers!


Big band and a ball: “Auld Lang Syne” has never sounded better when it’s done by the trumpets and horns of the big band sound, which is what you can expect to reverberate at the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Family Center Monday night. The Knights of Columbus will host its 15th annual New Year’s Eve Charity Ball to benefit Catholic Charities.

It’s the first year the Knights are assisting Catholic Charities’ food pantry by donating ticket proceeds from the ball – and as many as 220 people are expected. At up to $25 a ticket, it will be a helpful donation for the pantry, said Chito Morales, the financial secretary for the Knights and chairman of the New Year’s Eve Charity Ball.

“(The pantry) plenty well gets depleted after the holidays. So we’re hoping to help them out,” Morales said.

Expect to hear high energy live music from Mike Torres III and The Grooveland Chicano Band of San Antonio. With their big band sound, the musicians will keep guests on their feet well through midnight. The party starts at 8 p.m. Monday at the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Family Center at 7601 N. Grandview Ave. The Knights will serve Champagne, menudo and tamales after midnight; you can bring your own alcohol as well. This year they’ve upgraded the event with a free photo booth and special lighting. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Call Morales at 432-296-9100 for more information.

Mystical night in Marfa: The El Cosmico oasis campground in the middle of the desert is synonymous with artists of any proclivity. Beyonce even stayed there once. The New Year’s Eve kick-off party on the 18-acre property – which is a wellspring of retro trailers, habitable teepees, picnic tables and campfire pits  – starts at 6 p.m. Monday. But an El Cosmico employee said the free event will stay on into the New Year. All trailers, tents and teepees are rented but you can bring your own tent at $12 a night per campground. A DJ will set the tone and guests can try out the photo booth. If you’re craving a martini, the only fault could be that El Cosmico’s bar doesn’t offer hard liquor. A New Year’s Day brunch is happening nearby at Fat Lyle’s from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for $15. Call 877-822-1950 or go to elcosmico.com.

Party at Club Patron: Texan and Tejano accordion player AJ Castillo is scheduled to perform live at the New Year’s Eve party at Club Patron Monday night. Promoter Robert Hernandez says people should choose Club Patron over other parties because Castillo is “the hippest Tejano right now. He carries a show that no one else knows. He’s young and very versatile – he plays hip hop and some country.” Doors open at 8 p.m. at the 21-and-over club at 5850 W. University Bvld. Call 432-631-3190 for pre-sale tickets of $20.

Swipe a swig at Lost Coyote Saloon: The rustic tavern on Andrews Highway hosts Flashback with Geno who will “rockabilly” the house from 8 p.m. into the morning. The saloon is located at 6108 Andrews Highway and you can call 432-362-0058.

Lay it out for American Legion: The American Legion is throwing its first-ever New Year’s Eve benefit with country music crooner Jerry Dugan and West Wind to raise money for the American Legion Riders and Crisis Center. Dugan simply states on his Facebook page “don’t miss it.” Dance the night away alongside a cash bar at the American Legion Hall, 2701 E. 8th St. Admission is $20 for singles and $35 for couples. Call 432-332-5582 or 432-333-2527 for tickets.

Dance at the disco: DJ Frank will play the favorites from the 1970s, ’80s along with classic country and Tejano music at the Hilton Garden Inn, 5221 JBS Parkway. The Jacob Garcia Band will play also at the third annual AST and Jammin’ 94.7 New Year’s Eve Celebration Monday night. The celebration starts at 8 p.m. and goes until 2 a.m. Call 432-235-0096 for tickets.

Only at the Oasis: The classic dance music will envelop the Oasis Bar Grill at the MCM Elegante hotel on East Loop 338 and University Boulevard. Tickets are $10. A New Year’s Eve buffet from 5 to 10 p.m. will serve up quite a spread of seafood at the Shrimp Boat restaurant inside the hotel for $19.99 a plate. Call 432-368-5885 or go to mcmelegante.com.

A “Central” nervous system: The “biggest New Year’s Eve party in Odessa” is apparently happening at Graham Central Station at 4240 Preston Smith Road. The bar will have $1.50 bar drinks and longnecks from 6 to 9 p.m. with a $5 cover before 9 p.m. Call 432-552-0552.
