What Are You Doing New Year's Eve

When the bells all ring and the horns all blow
And the couples we know are fondly kissing.
Will I be with you or will I be among the missing?

Maybe it's much too early in the game
Ooh, but I thought I'd ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year's
New Year's eve?

Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight
When it's exactly twelve o'clock that night
Welcoming in the New Year
New Year's eve

Maybe I'm crazy to suppose
I'd ever be the one you chose
Out of a thousand invitations
You received

Ooh, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance:
What are you doing New Year's
New Year's Eve?

New Year's Eve in Palm Springs

I'm going to Palm Springs for New Year's Eve ... Too bad I'm a little late for this party ...

"I was playing a New Year's Eve party for Sinatra in his house in Palm Springs. He listened with a drink in his hand and when I'd finished the tune, he said, 'Luigi' - he called me Luigi - 'How busy are you?' I said, 'As busy as I want to be.' He said, 'I'm going to have my office send you an itinerary. Make you an offer you can't refuse.'
"A few months later I got a call from his office asking for my address. I thought it was for a tax form or something but they said, 'We're sending you a ticket to Las Vegas.' I asked 'What for?' They said, 'You're going to Las Vegas. You better see the accountant and make a deal.' I'd been hired but nobody told me about it. They made me an offer I couldn't refuse.
"This was 1986. You know, after you've heard so much great stuff over so many years like I have it's hard not to get blasé. It takes a lot to knock you down. But he'd stand there in the crook of the piano and he'd be singing whatever it was and it was just frightening. My hair would stand on end. He was so logical, you'd know exactly where he was going to go, what his timing was going to be. It would thrill me just to be up there that close to him."

The Caliente Tropics Resort in Palm Springs, California opened again in March of 2001 after undergoing over $2 million in renovations. It's a prime example of one of the last standing Polynesian-themed motor hotels out of the 60's. Our Tiki and Polynesian style hotel now offers rooms that are both spacious and luxurious, with unique furnishings. Our exterior has been re-designed to reflect the mid-century look of when the resort first opened back in 1964.

Any suggestions for things we should do?

This sounds good to me ...
