New Years Eve!!
Plan on celebrating the New Year with us here at Post 129 - we always have a great time and always have a few surprises in store for the evening. This year is shaping up to be even better with two separate venues to throw amazing New Years Eve Parties!

In the Freedom Hall we are extremely excited to announce that we will have the band Yowsah here starting at 8 pm. They are an amazing band and I promise you you will have a great time! In the Liberty Hall we will have karaoke with no other than our very own Bob and Diana Pratt also starting at 8 pm.  With this stellar entertainment on both sides there is no where else you will want to be! 

And remember there will NOT be a cover charge. We like to throw what we call no fuss parties for New Years Eve. Great Entertainment, Simple Decorations, and Wonderful Friends. What more can you ask for?

There will be party favors and a champagne toast at midnight but other than that it is just come, party, drink, and dance! No dinner will be available that evening. We are requesting that if possible everyone brings in some snacks to share. 
Deck the Chairs is Now Open! 
Our chair is decorated at the Deck the Chairs event and it looks great. Special thanks to all of the volunteers that work so hard to pull it together. Be sure to stop by downtown Jacksonville Beach and check them out and place your vote for best chair. 
Your 2019 membership expires at the end of the year - time to renew your membership is now! All staff will be asking to see your 2020 cards starting on January 1st.

Christmas Eve at 7 pm
Com in your best ugly sweater or best Christmas outfit and join in on the silly fun! So start shopping and designing. Why not get fun and silly after all it's the holidays! 
The shirts are in. Please see Brandi or Scott to pick up your pre ordered shirts.  We did order a FEW extras so if you missed out on the order stop by and see what we have you may find something you love. 

We will also be selling the extra shirts we have left over from past events for a deep discount. So be to be here to see what kind of deals we are offering on those. 
New Chips Are Coming! 
I have been receiving many questions and it seems that there many conflicting stories circulating the Post. So let me clear it up. Yes we are retiring our old chips and we are getting new ones. This is not happening until mid January.

Also at that time we will be increasing our drink prices. We have not increased our prices in over 8 years so it is time. Watch in the upcoming weeks for a list of the new drink prices. I assure you we have done everything possible to keep our drink reasonable and I think you will all agree when you see the new pricing. 

Once we do roll out the new chips system you will still be able to use the old chips but they will only be good for what they were purchased for. An example of this is if you have a blue chip which is valued at $2.50 and you want a $2.75 drink you would just have to add .25 cents to purchase that drink. If you have any questions please feel free to ask Brandi. 
If you haven't gotten your Tervis yet now is the time! Pick up yours today! Any bartender would be happy to help you.
