Dinner with a Chance of Melody

Artisanal handcrafted cocktails in one hand, delectable scrumptious appetizers in the other, all while enjoying live acoustic jams from our area's best musicians, in an inviting setting: Is there a better way to ring in the new year? Not in our book. Event organizer and self-professed ultimate "Soulcialite" Ingrid B welcomes you -- with open arms -- to her New Year's Eve event, "The Sessions, an Acoustic Dinner Party," held at the Seminole Hard Rock's intimate musical lounge Piano. Every Tuesday night, promoter and poet Ingrid B rounds up the best artists from around Palm Beach and Broward counties in an open-mic setting for a night of soulfully inspirational jams. New Year's Eve shifts a bit from the normal format as gifted pianist Allen Paul is set to headline the night and welcome his equally talented cast of friends to accompany him onstage. This memorable classy evening takes place on Tuesday at Piano, located at 5805 Seminole Way in Hollywood, from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. Free to attend. Call 305-519-1369, or visit onthebside.com.
Tue., Dec. 31, 7 p.m.-3 a.m., 2013
