Your plans for New Year's Eve?

Will you stay home, throw a party, go to a party, go to a restaurant or club? We'll be having a dinner for two at home with a long dinner--lobster likely to be one course--and watch an old movie. Probably won't make it until midnight, so will have some champagne earlier in the evening. (We've been invited to friends but staying home has become our NYE tradition.) What will you be doing?

  1. We always stay home on NYE. Dinner for two (probably lobster in some form), lots of good wine and bubbly, fire in the fireplace and LOTS of college football.

    1. I'll be working and no chance of getting it off unless a miracle occurs.
      It's ok, but would rather be off.

      1. Staying in and loving it. We'll be at home, with a fire, some good movies and lots of bubbly and good food if I have anything to say about it. And, I think I do!
        Crab will be likely, and I may get a nice dry-aged ribeye. I'd like to do a decadent spread of several things, maybe oysters and caviar, depending...
        Often I am overly ambitious and too exhausted to carry through on these things, though. Crab, bread and a salad of chicories may suffice. Definitely bubbly and whatever dessert is requested.

        1. Go to a friend's house (within walking distance; getting a cab is a nightmare on NYE and the subway can be a real shit show) for a small-ish party. Good drinks, good food, good times (and the Twilight Zone marathon in the background).

          I go out to eat and out for drinks a few times a week, so I don't see a point of making a special deal out of doing so for New Years Eve.

          1. We'll be on a cruise over Christmas and NYears.
