NORWICH – Some city businesses are opening their doors later than usual this New Year’s Eve and preparing to host local celebrants to ring in the new year on Saturday night.
Plans to carry out New Year’s Eve festivities are in the works at several businesses on Main Street. People who are looking for a night on the town will have plenty of choices; many places are offering something a little more in celebration of the occasion.
“We are looking for a good crowd and for everyone to have a good time,” said Andy Franklin, who manages the Park Place Restaurant and Lounge. The restaurant is taking reservations for a New Year’s Eve buffet that will be open from 4 to 10 p.m. Franklin, who will be celebrating the second new year for the restaurant, said the crowds were great last year and hopes to see a better turnout this year. The bar and lounge will remain open, even long after the ball drops, he said.
