Happy New Year!

I just wanted to take a minute to wish everyone a Happy New Year and to make a few observations on New Year’s Eve and the gatherings you may be attending.

First keep in mind that NYE is amateur night out. Many people use this night to get in all their drinking for the year or at last for the Holiday Season. It is one of the biggest drinking nights of the year with the exception of Christmas parties and maybe Mardi Gras’ Fat Tuesday.

Be safe and do NOT drink and drive. Most of you who I drink with regularly know that despite my legendary drinking binges I NEVER, NEVER, NEVER drink and drive. Hire a driver, take a cab or walk.

Some of the best NYE parties I have attended have just happened. Some years without any plans we just went out and when we found an establishment that we were having fun at we choose that place to ring in the New Year. You can have a great time doing this and meet some fantastic people.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with staying home and enjoying NYE with family and/or friends. I remember years in the past where we would have a small group and everyone would bring their favorite snack and we would watch movies and listen to music all night long.

Thanks for another year of following MySideOfTheBar and have a Happy and Safe New Year
