    Just curious...

    I'll be somewhere in Manhattan (NOT Times Square), standard diner/champagne/clubbing stuff. But I have yet to pick out a place, make reservations or buy tickets etc...

    You?

    Careful. You're cutting it close.

    I'll be at a friend's dinner party. Very low-key evening.

    I'll be on the west coast (I'm an eastcoaster) visiting with family and friends.

    This is going to be my first vacation in 6 years. I still have so much to do to get ready for it....

    I hope everyone here has a nice holiday and new year. Take care and stay safe!

    Our semi-tradition is for two or more friends to get together and play games all evening. Last year, it was just me playing solitaire while my wife fell asleep on the couch, but it was comfortable inside, no drunks or jerks, and I won as many rounds as I lost.

    Probably nothing. I'm not much a new year's person, I never make such a big deal of it anyway. [​IMG] But it is a holiday (even though it falls on a saturday this year) so I'll probably be getting ready for a NYD cycle trip or hiking trip.

    Arrrrrgh!!!

    I just found out the g/f wants to do Times Square [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]. Completely miscommunicated on that one. I can't say no, it's a lifelong dream of hers (west coaster).

    Having done it twice, I am definitely not in a big hurry to go back.

    Dammit.

    My New Year's are usually pretty low key. My "craziest" was actually a combined bachelor's party and New Year's Eve bash. We were standing in front of "Big Al's" in San Francisco when the hour turned [​IMG]

    My most enjoyable was just hanging out with friends and playing Cranium, then introducing the older members of our group to a first person shooter video game. It was pretty funny how lost they were.

    Not a whole lot. Much cheaper that way and much safer.

    I am not much for the crowd thing, so time square would not be my idea of fun. Sorry you have to go back....

    Having a small party at my house. We've invited about a dozen friends for a game of board games and such. We did this two years ago and had so much fun that we all forgot about the changeover.

    Dinner and dancing. Should be a good time. I like New year's eve for the most part. I've had my fair share of bad ones, but most are fun.

    Quiet night at home watching DVDs with the family. I have to rest up for the all-day football marathon on the 1st.

    Going to a New Years Eve bash featuring Wide Mouth Mason (band from Saskatchewan) at a club with some friends. Since I normally don't go to clubs on New Years this should be kind of fun. [​IMG]

    No idea. I'm flying back to Rochester on the 30th and will looking for a party. My favorite New Year's activity is a casual party with friends, playing games.
