I'm not a big New Years fan. I used to work in bars for years, and to me New Years is nothing more than a BS excuse for amateur drinkers to go out and be annoying and require huge amounts of babysitting. One. Big. Headache. I just roll my eyes when I see the typical night club charge stupid cash for $2 worth of party favours and a cold cut buffet, never mind staying open for an extra few hours to ensure that everyone is GOOD and blitzed. Not my scene. I prefer to just hang out with a couple of good friends and have a nice dinner at home, with a bottle of wine or 7. This year I'm going to be in Toronto, and have opted to go out to a nice jazz/blues club for a quiet, low-key New Year's Eve dinner with a good friend. It'll be a nice excuse to get dressed up and go do that classy/fun thing with some nice live music. FOCUS: What are your NYE plans? Are you one of those people that go Full Retard for NYE, or prefer to just stay in and away from the chaos?
