Bowl before the ball drops @ Pinstripes 

No other party in town will have both bowling AND bocce for you to play as you watch 2017 tick away. This event at Pinstripes will also be kid friendly, with two ball drops.

Be sure to make your reservations ahead of time if you want to bowl or play bocce. 🎳

 

Get dolled up with American Girl @ DoubleTree
