Ball at the Mall offers New Year's Eve partying at its best

Event provides funds for Tri-Valley charities, music, entertainment without leaving Pleasanton

Those still looking for a place to go for a New Year's celebration might consider the Ball at the Mall, a charity event at the Stoneridge Shopping Center.

The evening comes with The Aphrodesiacs, a 1970-era live band, a DJ, a piano bar, no-host bars, a champagne toast and local celebs to count down to midnight. Tickets are $75 ($100 for VIP tickets that come with special privileges) and those purchasing tickets can choose all or four specific charities where their ticket fee will go after expenses.

The event runs from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.

For $40 and a small handling fee, the Blackhawk Museum will have a celebrity DJ, go-go dancers, a balloon drop, casino gaming, no host bars and hors d'oeuvres. That event runs from 8 p.m. until 1 a.m. VIP tickets are $1,000 and include admission for 10 and a host of extras.

Those worried about the possibility of one too many adult beverages--with both local and state police promising extra patrols that night--party-goers might want to consider a local hotel with a room for the night. Many are offering special New Year's Eve rates.
