The New Year’s Celebration at Aspen Grill
The New Year’s tradition of eating black eyed peas and collard greens for good luck and prosperity is pretty well known, especially in the south. To give you a little history, Jewish people actually started doing this over 2,500 years ago, but most places I looked said that they just ate the peas. No one seems to know when the greens came about, but many folks today believe that eating both of them on New Year’s Day will bring you prosperity all year long, with the greens representing dollars and the peas standing for coins.
Chef Curry Martin, a 1996 graduate of the Johnson & Wales University Culinary School in Charelston, SC and owner of Aspen Grill, has been creating delicious southern dishes with his own unique twist for Myrtle Beach residents and visitors for years. For the restaurant’s New Year’s Eve Celebration, the menu will include black-eyed pea cakes, collard cakes, lobster tempura bites, prime filet with lobster tail, market fish, and scallops.
If you like live Jazz, Pop, and R&B, this upbeat party is sure to satisfy as you usher in the New Year with your friends and family. Mark Ahearn (who has also given live shows here at the Caravelle Resort) will make your transition from 2012 to 2013 a sensational one. Mark’s originally from New York, but since 1994 he’s been on the Grand Strand and has a long resume of wonderful venue appearances, including The Rich Little Show, The Swing Time Orchestra, Legends in Concert, and Tribute: The Concert.
If you’re a Caravelle guest, be sure to take your VMB card to get 10% off at the lovely Aspen Grille. They’re located about two miles from the Caravelle at 5101 North Kings Highway.
