our best partying years are behind us as well. we're going out to dinner at 6pm; probably a japanese hibachi place near home. then i have to be at work by 11pm for a double shift.
since we didn't get to do it for christmas, dw and my boy are coming in to the city to meet me on new years day, then we'll go see the tree in rockefeller center and go to dinner from there. i hope the sea grill is open. (thanks june
i think our most fun years were coming in to the city just before thay closed "the box" around times square, going to an 8pm show, then going to frankie and johnnies, sardi's, or many years ago mama leone's for dinner. if you timed it right, you stumbled out into the cold night, only having to walk a half block to stand with all of the frozen crazy people for a few minutes to watch the ball drop. then, while the mad rush egressed the city, we'd duck back into the restaurant that we'd just left for a nightcap.
oh, as far as drunk drivers go, my dad calls new years eve amateurs night".
