Christmas is almost upon which then of course means that New Year's will be here faster than you can say Auld Lang Syne. Have you decided how you'll be ringing out the old and ushering in the new yet?

Well, how about giving 2010 a proper send-off with a night of delicious food, drink, and laughs featuring one of the best romantic comedies ever made?

Sound good? Yeah, we thought so. Thankfully, there is still time to snatch up tickets to our event which fits this very bill: The WHEN HARRY MET SALLY New Year's Eve Feast Gala on Dec 31 at Alamo Ritz.

Still need some convincing? Check out the menu below prepared by Ritz head chef Elijah Horgan to perfectly compliment the film... with a nod to Sally's high maintenance eating habits.

Harry: There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance.

Sally: Which one am I?

Harry: You're the worst kind; you're high maintenance but you think you're low maintenance.

Sally: I don't see that.

Harry: You don't see that? Waiter, I'll begin with a house salad, but I don't want the regular dressing. I'll have the balsamic vinegar and oil, but on the side. And then the salmon with the mustard sauce, but I want the mustard sauce on the side. "On the side" is a very big thing for you.

Sally: Well, I just want it the way I want it.

Harry: I know; high maintenance.

Chef Elijah's Four-Course Menu: (optional wine and drink pairings will also be available)

"I'll Have What She's Having" Ciabatta, proscuitto and salami with roasted tomato and herbed ricotta. Everything served "Sally Style"... on the side.

"Chef's Salad" Shrimp, baby spinach, red pepper, orange slices and pomegranate seeds. Orange vinaigrette... yup, on the side.

"When Harry Met Sally - Sweet and Sour" Braised pork belly, poached pear, and "grilled raddichio" with a sweet and sour reduction (on the side).

"Apple Pie" Tartlet filled with strawberry and apple compote. Fresh cream topping... on the side

When Harry Met Sally New Year's Eve Feast Gala, 7:00pm Dec 31 at Alamo Ritz. Tickets available here.
