GREATER GRAND FORKS COMMUNITY THEATRE PRESENTSTHE FIREMAN’S BALL
It will be red and black all over when the Greater Grand Forks Com-munity Theatre celebrates its 65th season at the Empire Arts, NewYear’s Eve. The Community Theatre, which calls the Fire Hall Theatrehome, is hosting a celebration for everyone in the region who appre-ciates live performance and opportunities for amateurs to step intothe spotlight from time to time. The Greater Grand Forks CommunityTheatre is listed as one of the longest running community theatres inthe nation. It acquired the Fire Hall in 1982, moving into the buildingin 1983, and saving it from demolition. “Community Theatre mem-bers saved the building, and it is now listed as a contributing factorto the historic downtown in Grand Forks, “ stated Executive Director,Kathy Coudle-King.The “Fireman’s Ball” will be filled with Encore Performances by actorsand singers from previous seasons, dancing to a DJ, and karaoke.“While some may only know karaoke from hearing their Uncle Alget up at their cousin’s wedding and slurring through “Love Shack,”these theatre folk are good!” assured Ms. Coudle-King. In additionto the entertainment, there will be delicious food prepared by Chef Justin Welsh (of the ND Museum of Art Café) and a cash bar tendedby Rhombus Guys. Organizers are also advertising the “VenetianHour” at 11 p.m. They refuse to reveal what this is, only saying it’s“decadent” and will involve masks. Intriguing.Additionally, everyone (21 and older) will receive a complimentaryglass of champagne at midnight. There are said to be other antics inthe works as well. Sounds like a unique way to close the year.While the event is definitely a celebration of the Community The-atre’s longevity, it’s also a fundraiser. “Our theatre building is 107-years old. This means it is in constant need of TLC. Right now ourbiggest concern is the brick work on the building. It’s in dire need of tuck pointing, so any funds we can raise will be put towards this mostbasic need – bricks and mortar repair,” said Ms. Coudle-King.Adults and teens are welcome to join in the fun, 8 p.m. – 1 a.m. Tick-ets are $35 or two for $65, or a table for 6 can be booked for $195and they will receive a complimentary bottle of wine or champagnefor the table. Must reserve by Dec. 14th, though, to insure there’splenty of food for all in attendance.They are also offering a $20 admission, beginning at 10:30, whichwon’t include the nibbles by Chef Welsh but will include the “Venet-ian Hour.Attire: theatrical, formal, casual – whatever you prefer –they simply ask you wear black or red.Call 746-0847 or email info@ggfct.com to reserve your spot for whatsounds like an exceptional New Year’s eve event. Also, donations tothe theatre are greatly appreciated and can be sent to GGFCT – 412N 2nd Avenue, GF, ND 58203 with “Bricks” on the envelope.for more information: GGFCT.com / 701-746-0847/info@ggfct.com

COVER
After New Year’s Eve, many people set goals, purchase self-improvement books and renew their gym memberships. One celebration inGrand Forks helps close the year, while kick-starting a new one.Celebrate the Night is an event on December 31 that is for families to enjoy the last day of the year with one big party. Bringing the GrandForks community together has been a tradition for almost two decades. In 1994, the GF Substance Abuse & Traffic Safety Committee or-ganized, First Night. “It became a free standing non-profit a few years later, it has been held every year except for one, 2010, that was can-celled because of a blizzard that hit New Year’s Eve,” explains Kim Miller, President Board of Directors Friends of First Night GGF. The event isnow called Celebrate the Night and continues to grow. Miller says that they can expect between 1500 and 3000 attendees at the event.“Celebrate the Night is a great way to spend New Year’s Eve for the entire family, our goal is to make it a little bit different every year and toexpand the entertainment for all ages,” Miller adds.Families looking for an all ages event will have many options at Celebrate the Night. “We always have live entertainment and bands. We aregoing to have the roller derby girls and laser tag. We also will have inflatable games and some type of teen room,” explains Marketing Coor-dinator Jessica Rosencrans.The event is focused on engaging families and getting the younger generation into the festival. “Last year we tried laser tag and it was a bighit so this year will feature it again as well. We are working with a group of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) students and aretrying to get them even more involved,” Rosencrans adds.There is a core of event organizers but community members are welcome to work at this late-night function. “We’re always looking for vol-unteers, anyone who volunteers gets into the event for free with a 2 to 3 hr shift,” explains Rosencrans.All entertainment takes place at the Alerus Center. Festivities begin at 6pm and end shortly the after the countdown at 12 am. Wristbandscan be purchased in advance for $5 at Valley Dairy or Ticket Master. Tickets are $8 at the door. Group discounts are available and childrensix and under are free. A full list of events and information on volunteering opportunities will be available at celebratethenight.com.

THE TOP BURGERS IN TOWN
By GRAND FORKS GOURMET
Be honest. Is there really anything better than an enormous, juicy burger? With gooey cheese oozing from atop the slightly pink patty,crunchy white onions, tart pickles and a generous slathering of ketchup and mustard? The easy answer is no. A big burger is hard to beat.Here are three of the best in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks.Outlaw Burger at the Blue Moose in East Grand ForksAn EGF institution, the Blue Moose has a lot to offer and the cooks aren't afraid to change things up by offering specialty and seasonalmenus in addition to their wide-ranging everyday menu.For me, their Outlaw Burger stands atop the impressive list of burgers at the Moose. It's ground chuck topped with pepper jack cheese, ahuge and crunchy onion ring and chipotle barbecue sauce. It's a combo that is deliciously smoky, salty, crunchy and a bit sweet.
