Be part of the biggest two-day New Year’s party in the

drink, and be merry with non-stop entertainment both on Old Year’s Night.
“At Foxy’s, there’s always special entertainment for this special
night of the year,” says Dick Martin, who’s helping to organize the
festivities. “At least two, if not three
local area bands are featured to provide non-stop music from dusk until dawn.
And there are always special performances by Foxy himself. Whether in Foxy’s
Outback concert venue or beach front, there’s a band playing and drinks
flowing. Then, the first day of the New Year is reserved for recovery.”
Food and drink-wise, Martin says,
“Great food and its presentation is where Foxy’s shines. A
Caribbean barbecue is offered on the beachfront
level, complete with ribs, chicken and freshly caught fish complemented by
garden vegetables. For those who get their reservations in early, feast on a
five-course, full-service seafood and meat dinner served on the bar’s
private second level, the Upper Crust dining area. The dinner will also include
top shelf spirits, party favors and a terrific view of the Outback band. It’s a
dinner and entertainment evening that will go down in your memory book.”
As for libations to ring in the
New Year, Martin adds, “Foxy’s own brew is on tap, as well as his
legendary Pain Killers, Dread Fox and Sly Fox libations.”
Over at Foxy’s Taboo,
located on Diamond Cay, Martin says, “There will be a lovely dinner with
a local band providing the music for a ‘just perfect’ romantic
evening. There will be transportation to and from Foxy’s
so that you can also join the Big Party if you like.”
To get to Jost
for New Year’s, take your own boat or hop on one of the public ferries
that runs between the island and Tortola, St. Thomas
and St. John.
Martin adds, “Sailors are
advised to anchor early in Great
Harbour and get squared
away in anticipation of a great event to welcome in the New Year.”
