What are your plans?

Stopping in for a quite one, going out on the lash, fancy dress, romantic evening with the partner? Come on let's be knowing.

I'll be going round to my lads for a do then after the chimes me and the Mrs will be driving to the local to see our daughter who'll be graffting behind the bar, Therefore I'll be partying but not drinking.

I will have a few on New years day at the footie though. :wink:

Happy new year to you all. :D

    I hate it and find it depressing.

    Everyone getting deranged because the date is changing. It does that every night.

    New Year is a HUGE waste of time.

    I'm planning to get an early night then be out at 6.30am for my first ride of 2010 8)

    May as well get my first point on the 2010 Metric Century challenge board :wink:

    My local comedy club in Manchester usually costs £10 on Thursdays but £40 for new years the night..The rip off price was started off by the millineium celebration and looks here to stay..Was thinking of Edinburgh this year but hostels are 4 days min stay at £45 per night Is it worth it?.Anyone ever seen New year in edinburgh and recommend it??
  • Not a massive fan of drinking anyway, so I won't be joining my friends in some overpriced rip off establishment. I like a quiet drink, not getting ripped off standing up in an overcrowded bar.

    Also means if the weather is better I can ride Friday morning.

    Singstar for me and the wife too.

    She's 36 weeks pregnant though, so I'll be getting pissed up doing my best morrisey impression while she scowls :D

    Over the years, I've done it all ways (ahem! :oops: ).

    Edinburgh is fun for the young; Staying in with the family can be very pleasant (or very boring); meal out passes the time but often involves forced jollity; Rome was good - they throw crockery out of the windows :shock: ; New Year in a ski resort is usually good fun, too. I once chose to spend it on my own (baby asleep next door). I just sat by the fire with a whisky. That was nice.

    The best ones I have had have been just wandering around my village after midnight going in to neighbours for a dram and a chat.

    This year we are going for a meal with good friends; I'm too old for the all nighters, now.

    Thing is, you cannot guarantee that it will be good; it will either happen or not happen.

    Looks like a night around at my bessie mate's house. Everyone packed into the same house, food, wine, joviality, "old long since" etc.

    Then up in the morning for a cruel 10 miler in the sludge on the mtb with a call off here and there to said hostelry en route.

    Tradition see.

    HNY to the OP and everyone else.
  • For me the plan is start off in the local after working all day. THen pub crawl it back to a friend's house for the night. Beginning the alcohol ban in the morning (after waking up) in preparation for the club training camp.

    10k running race with 30,000 others at 6pm then dinner at home with family, the 12 grapes with the dongs of the bell at midnight and then... best not to make plans and go with the flow. but i doubt it'll be "large" - its the most expensive and complicated night to go out of the whole year.

    Staying in with the family :D
  • Hopefully a quiet night in but 1st baby is already 3 days late - so it could be a new year at hospital!

    My days of painting the town red are over, I take too long to recover.

    Quiet night, slippers, bottle of wine, knock up somehting very unhealthy to eat and then plan how I am going to drop half a stone in January.

    D :D
  • At work 7am new years day so quiet one with the family dim sum, nibbles and wii games galore no doubt.

    We have my brother-in-law and his fiance coming over for dinner. NYE is without doubt the most over-hyped night of the year, so we'll keep it low key and kick them out at 12.01am! :D

    Been invited to a friend's party round their house - seems a lot simpler than trying to trek on into London to catch up with my old uni mates, so I guess I'll be doing that.

    Might try a blast down at Swinley the next day...!
