Open thread: What the heck are you doing for New Year’s?

by -

The late Christopher Hitchens once said champagne was one of the four most overrated things in life (and if you play your cards right, you might get the other three tomorrow night too). Yet every year we feel obligated to drink the stuff while easing way past an entirely symbolic measurement of time, holding on to that last fading glow of joy the holiday season has been getting us hooked on since November. Double down that pressure this year because it’s on a Saturday. So what are actually going to do for New Year’s Eve? Asshat-filled warehouse party? Intimate couch canoodling? Free bar party? Neighborhood-wide streaking? Pop your mouth cork and let those comments rip, brokesters. And let’s be safe out there.
