New Year's Eve options in Okla. include olive drop
(AP) - Forget the requisite flashing ball drop. Revelers at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Price
Tower in northeastern Oklahoma will be ringing
in 2014 with the lowering of a giant olive into a martini glass.
The 19-story building in Bartlesville is home
to the Inn at Price
Tower and the Copper Bar
in addition to an art museum and historic tours.
Guest Services Associate Tina Davis Lovec says organizers selected an olive
because it goes with the theme of the Copper Bar.
The olive drop is one of several options Oklahomans will have on Tuesday to
celebrate the new year. Other events include 5K runs, a sobriety powwow and a
party hosted by Thunder forward Kevin Durant.
