New Year's Eve plans

Looks like this year we won't be going out. Instead Drew is inviting a small group of friends to his house.

It makes more sense. We always have trouble finding a restaurant that suits everyone's budget and tastes.

Last year we wound up at a seafood restaurant. Food was great, band was boring and we were overdressed . . . We dressed for New Year's Eve and everyone else was wearing khakis and sweaters.

The previous year we went to a great Italian place with a good DJ, but all the food had red sauce and one member of the group is allergic to tomatoes. DJ was great but most of the group didn't get up to dance - what a waste.

I'm willing to spend a little more for a nice evening but some members of the group can't . . .Or won't spend what I am willing to spend.

So we're getting food from a local restaurant and having the party at his house. Should be fun.

I think that's a great idea.

For many years, the ex and I hosted an annual New Year's gathering at our place in Maryland. We'd get anywhere from 5-15 of our friends down from LI, and it was a three day party that resembled a 20-something Big Chill.

Maybe in the week between Christmas and New Year's, you and Drew can get all dressed up and do a night on the town anyway?

Perhaps. Or maybe after the holidays we'll go out.
