Different Year, Same Dilemma
Taking a page from lazy journalists everywhere (I hear it’s called “crowdsourcing”), I can safely say that, across the board, people either enthusiastically love or viciously hate New Year’s Eve.* There’s absolutely no middle ground when it comes to the bacchanalian end-of-the-year celebration.
For years, I considered myself to be a huge fan of NYE – I’d organize trips to Montreal before my friends were 21, I’d track down the best open bar deals, I’d scope out the best-sounding parties, etc. Then, a few bad experiences piled up over the years (broken heels, coat check riots, overly-aggressive bartenders who demand $20 tips at an open bar) and I think I’m now firmly planted amongst the NYE haters. Without sounding tragic, I think I’m just getting too old for this shit.
Should I just man up, go out and get drunk? Or should I follow my loner, anti-social heart and hide until 2010?
