In or out on New Year's Eve?

What do you do on New Year's Eve? I have to say that lately, Steve and I have chosen to ring in the New Year at home. It's usually so cold and icky out that whatever there is to do isn't better than the nice warm house. We have been to First Night, which can be really fun, and we've had New Year's celebrations that got us home at 4am, which was even more fun, but generally home is where it's at for us. I like to make a load of what I call party food: meatballs, lobster salad for little sandwiches, cheese and crackers, bruschetta, etc. and serve it over the course of a few hours.

Tell me what you're doing on Friday night to ring in the new year, and what you usually do to celebrate the holiday. The weather forecast as of today says it's going to be 58 degrees on Friday - that might get us out of the house this year!

Both sound like good choices, Marc!

First NY with Kelly so we can't decide. Quiet night at home or dance all night at 2720 with Funky Butt and The Dogtown Allstars.

Eric Hall is going to be treating us all to mashups in his guise as DJ Lil' Daddy Reba McEntire at El Leñador that night, so that's our plan.

As for what we ordinarily do for NYE, it's pretty evenly split between going out and staying in. I tend to be leery of Amateur Night, so on the years when we do go out I try to avoid barhopping, instead only hitting one or two places before heading to a house party or going home.

And with the temp expected, it could be outside on the patio. ; )

I know the refrain "amateur night" is just around the corner, but I'm always looking for something genuinely fun to do on NYE in STL. It's a challenge. I think this essay writer year might find me at the Bottleworks for Colonel Ford. Honky tonk new year's!
