As the weather gets chillier and we near closer to New England’s first snowfall, there is no better way to fully immerse yourself into the holiday season than by attending Owl’s Nest’s second annual Holiday Gala, taking place on Friday, December 15th. This is a great excuse to get out of the house with family and friends and dress up in some classy holiday attire for a night that everyone will remember for years to come!
The evening will be comprised of a complimentary champagne toast and cocktail hour with a mouthwatering list of passed hors d’oeuvres, a delicious 3-course plated dinner, as well as a lovely dueling piano performance that you can enjoy from Jim Tyrell and Gardner Berry. The dueling piano performance will be fully request driven, offering you the perfect opportunity to bring a list of your favorite holiday tunes to enjoy with family and friends. Both Jim Tyrell and Gardner Berry can play anything, so be prepared be singing and dancing the night away in no time!
The main menu for the Holiday Gala’s 3-course plated dinner will include a Roasted Beet and Apple Salad to start, served with candied walnuts, Bailey Hazen blue cheese, pomegranate seeds, and a honey balsamic vinaigrette. For a second course, you will have your choice of the Cider Brined Pork Chop, Grilled Swordfish, or Grilled Marinated Tofu. The Cider Brined Pork Chop is served with Garlic Swiss chard, cinnamon sweet potatoes, as well as maple-bacon chutney. The Grilled Swordfish is perfect for seafood lovers, served with herbed couscous, salsa fresca, and garlic green beans. And the Grilled Marinated Tofu is served with grilled tofu, herbed couscous, tomato and olive chutney, and green beans. And of course, you can never forget dessert! For dessert, you will have your choice of a Cider Bellies Donut Sundae, served with Vanilla ice cream, caramel, and blueberries foster, or a refreshing Strawberry Sorbet.
Seating for the Holiday Gala will be family-style, with tables of 8 and 10 available downstairs in The LakeHouse and a limited quantity upstairs.

In the spirit of the holidays, Owl’s Nest will also be offering several opportunities for guests to give back. Owl’s Nest will be holding a silent auction with resort items as well as sports memorabilia, and all proceeds will go towards local first responders. During the silent auction, guests will have the option to bid on a variety of items, either for themselves, or for the perfect holiday gift! The winning bids will be announced at the end of the Holiday Gala. Further, Owl’s Nest is encouraging guests to bring donations of non-perishable food items for the New Hampshire Food Bank, as part of their mission to give back to the community this holiday season.
