New year's eve with "Guitars, Sax and more" in La Jolla

The seventh annual Times Square West Celebration at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine presented by Sycuan Casino & Resort is the West Coast’s premier New Year’s Eve Celebration.

Times Square West, modeled after New York’s historic New Year’s Eve Celebration and Ball Drop, gained international recognition after portions of the event were broadcast world wide during the 2000/2001 Millennium Celebration. Now recognized as a San Diego institution - Times Square West is covered extensively by the media during the weeks leading up to the celebration and is carried live by many of the county’s top television stations throughout the evening.

The midnight spectacular features a 15-minute choreographed show that includes pyrotechnics, lasers, video screens, contemporary soundtrack and 500 pounds of confetti shot from 24 cannons as a specially designed Ball is lowered outdoors from the 16th-floor of the Hyatt Regency La Jolla.

The Hyatt Regency and the Aventine complex will host an array of electrifying performances on five stages beginning at 7 pm. This year’s attendees will spend the final hours of 2003 in style while enjoying the smooth jazz sounds of the Smooth Jazz Super group - Guitars, Sax and more featuring individual performances by saxophonist Richard Elliot, guitarist Peter White, sax man Steve Cole and Guitarist Jeff Golub before midnight - then together after midnight in the Hyatt’s Grand Ballroom. Plus the incredible Disco Pimps will keep you dancing all night long in the glass enclosed Barcino Pavilion along with more dancing to swing band Big Time Operator in Michael's, a Steel Drum band on the Aventine Courtyard and San Diego's hottest DJ Maximum Impact featuring Greg Rackley on two dance floors under the stars in the clear Copa Tent.

A limited number of advance purchase tickets are currently on sale for $99 each and include unlimited access to the event including five stages of entertainment, party favors, complimentary light hors-d’oeuvres from 7:30 to 9:30 pm, and the unbelievable outdoor Times Square West Midnight Ball Drop and laser light show.

Guaranteed dinner reservations at one of the four unique restaurants at the Aventine can also be arranged at the same time that you purchase your tickets.

A limited number of standard and Regency Club room packages are also available.
