I just happened to find this forum and read it and was shocked at what I saw! As a fellow 'host', I am going to put my two cents in.

People, you have no CLUE what it takes to host a party. Whether it's a party of ten couples or a party of 100 couples the 'return' the host gets after expenses certainly is NOT a fortune and MIGHT feed a family of four for a night out at a local restaurant. And if it's more, it only pays for all the times you didn't make anything at the previous parties. The amount of work involved in getting the room, the food, the DJ and all the other stuff you don't see on the surface is exhausting. Not only that, the amount of emails you answer on a daily basis for upwards of two months in advance and the calls the whole week of the party, let alone the babysitting that has to be done before, during and after the parties is CRAZY. Most hosts do not even get to enjoy their own parties and end up going to someone else's party just to be able to let their hair down.

$60 is NOT expensive for New Years Eve. And even if it was, if you can't afford it or can't justify spending that money for what you 'get', then don't go. If you have a beef with the hosts or the event, take it to a private forum. To throw it out in such a public setting is tacky and disrespectful and even though they won't, it would be awesome if you were charged a $20 surcharge at the next party (just because they can!) :)

Glad you had a good party ~ hope you had some fun ~ and Happy New Year to you all!!

Just my two cents ~ ~ Heidi

Thank you K for your reply. Some people don't realize what goes into a club event vs a house party. We try to offer a relax environment where like minded people can meet and get to know each other. However we do incur some expense along the way. We would love to have someone come forward and offer their services free of charge but that has not happened. If you know of anyone that has a large banquet room or would like to DJ for free we would be happy to speak to them. So until then, we have to pay for the banquet room, the DJ and the playrooms. We also offer many door prizes and free shots and bring in pizza later in the evening all of which costs money. We do our best to keep the price down to a minimum and many times we do loose money. Most of our parties are $40 dollars. This being NYE we decided to offer a hot buffet and midnight toast so we had to add a little to the price. To add to what the other post said. we do not control the price of the hotel. They do offer our group a discount off the regular rate but they set the price.

I am sorry that you feel the cost of this event is too much. I know going to a non-swinger event NYE party cost my husband and I $75 a piece and that wasn't even including hotel, or anything else. With the cost of hotels, they set those prices and many people do not get a room. There is cost associated with parties, meals, two playrooms etc... The playrooms are rare for many clubs. Yes there are those out there that have them but they are more private selected parties and not open to the public.

At this point, this club might just not be the right fit for you. I know the owners work very hard to ensure their events are safe, fun and provide the most for your buck.

Best wishes and Happy New Year.

The parties are normally $40 for a couple, which is just a touch higher than what it was at the original location. The new location is much better suited for the large parties that Enchantments has grown into, which is a wonderful thing. For an additional $20 tonight, you get a buffet dinner for two, plus a champagne toast. For $20, you could get a buffet dinner at Ponderosa. Or the nearby casino has a buffet dinner for almost $20 per person. The increase in size has also brought on the need for an additional play room, bringing the number of open rooms for those that are interested, to two. We also have a DJ, which was not part of the package at the old location.

I'm personally happy to pay $60 for a night out on New Year's Eve with a group of friends, when dinner alone on a special night like this would easily cost $100 or more.

bm, I have attended several parties of enchantment's. I'm sure they pay for the halll, dj, playrooms. shots, the awesome giveaway baskets, etc... and in addition to all that. They have a full menu on New Year's even including a midnight toast. For us it's a pretty cheap night out for a new year's eve party. Hope you still come and have a great time.

The 29 th was a great idea. Then everyone is free for the usual festivities with family and vanilla friends. Plus the 29th is my birthday. That would have been cool.

Why the date change? We thought the 29th was a better choice.Btw,$60 is getting a little pricey.
