So over New Year’s

Is it just me, or does the lineup for every single event on New Year’s Eve just completely blow? I know that we are supposed to be the best place EVER to have New Year’s according to Hotwire (thanks Gaper’s Block), but I am just not feeling it this year. I’m typically not around town this time of year (luck has found me in Las Vegas in the last couple of years), and the times that I have gone out I have been consistently pissed off by botched plans, ridiculous cold, and the complete inability to get a train / cab / bus / all of the above. That said, who has anti-New Year’s plans?

    I’m heading up to Lake Geneva with some friends for a very laid back NYE with lots of food. We’ve done it for a few years now and it has been lots of fun.

    NYE is a lame-ass holiday… everyone is *expected* to party, and consequently, there are all these huge and unrealistic expectations of great partiness…

    The best NYE’s I’ve had have been spent with a handful of close friends, doing basically nothing. I’ll go out and get my party on some other night that isn’t filled with lame events and drunk asshats.

    Dinner with friends and then a few parties is the only way to go. Only amatuers go out to bars or concerts in NYE.

    i have just googled the words “anti-new years” and this is what i came upon. this will be my fifth year as an anti-new year enthusiast, and i couldnt be more excited. Years of over preparation for a second in time had always left me underfulfilled.. until i decided to celebrate just the opposite. more of an embrace of friendship and a simple but enjoyable night. glad there are others out there like me.

    the whole anti-new year party thing is definitely gaining momentum. everyone i talk to is either planning on dinner with friends or just staying in altogether, with a few friends over. the days of heading out to a bar in the hopes of a good time are over for me….especially since the debacle at the irish eyes a few years ago…
