Dancing at parties is a great way to beat the chill. This year-end, the state capital residents would get a plenty of opportunities to warm themselves up by swaying to music.
A number of events have been lined up at clubs, hotels and the new discotheque to celebrate Christmas and New Year. Some have begun already.
On Sunday, Patna Golf Club organised a Christmas carnival. The club members enjoyed the delicious Punjabi spread. In the evening, a Housie competition was organised and the winner took home Rs 1 lakh.
“This is an annual feature at the club,” said Mohit Ahluwalia, one of the organisers.
Christmas, of course, is as much about being generous as it is a chance to have fun. Lions Club Patna Favourite would provide one such opportunity to citizens on December 25. Singer Neeraj Sridhar would entertain revellers at the SK Memorial Hall event.
Namrata Singh, president, Lions Club Patna Favourite, said: “We are raising funds for cancer patients. If all the tickets are sold, we would gift a cyberknife to one of the cancer institutes.”
A cyberknife is a robotic radio-surgery instrument used to operate on tumours.
Taking a little break from partying after the Christmas Day would not be a bad idea because there are many more on New Year’s Eve. Couples can go to Vijyatej Clarks Inn on December 31. The new hotel and restaurant at P&M Mall in Patliputra would host a party for couples only.
“There would free flow of food and drinks,” said Aabish, the organiser. “DJ Rixx, one of the most popular disc jockeys of New Delhi, would add life to party.”
Midnight need not be the Cindrella hour for the revellers either. The restaurant would be open till the early hours of the New Year.
The party would continue all through the night at The Disc Man — the new discotheque in the capital.
Gautam, the manager of the disco, said: “We shall get our liquor licence by December 31. So nothing would be missing from our New Year party. The disco will remain open till 1am.”
Those who wish to give their dancing feet a little rest could sit down and watch others dance. Ghar Aangan, the luxury resort, has organised the performance of a Mumbai-based troupe on the New Year eve.
They could also sing along popular numbers with Usha Uthup as the clock strikes midnight on December 31.
