New Year’s levees abound in Capital Region, take your pick

Many opportunities to hobnob with the politicians on Jan. 1

People looking to start 2013 with hobnobbing and free goodies have plenty of options. For the early birds who didn’t party too hard on New Year’s Eve, the first levee of the day will be hosted by HCMS Malahat on behalf of local ships and naval shore establishments.

For those who want to catch a glimpse of, or chat with newly inducted Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon, head to Government House for the biggest levee in the region.

For the late risers, the township of Esquimalt offers the latest levee of the day, ending at 2:30 p.m.
