I'm looking at the open bar and dj at the russian lady, and then whatever's still open in west hartford

edit: there is an overwhelming consensus for "bed at a reasonable hour". what happened to slamming beers and grinding like it's 2005?

edit 2: FIREWORKS. fireworks at 6pm and midnight. i'm seeing those

edit final: it was a great night. i met someone there i had previously met on reddit. my head hurts. great, great night

happy new years, nutmuggers <3

Stay safe man. You're doing everyone a favor keeping drunk drivers off the road.

Nothing worse than open bar on New Year’s Eve. Long ass lines and watered down drinks.


TreeEleben t1_j2faxn0 wrote

Open bars always include a few people who get way too drunk and start fighting or otherwise making a scene.


Fit_Low592 t1_j2eufdn wrote

Couch, kids, appetizers and champagne.

Friends house for some food & drinks while the kids play together.

Hopefully home by 930 so I can change into comfy clothes & fall asleep on the couch until my preteen wakes my wife & I up a few minutes prior to midnight


SD_Lostboy OP t1_j2f6kna wrote

then you'll trade places, your kid conks right out but you and your wife can't get a wink of sleep lol


Likeapuma24 t1_j2f738v wrote

100% haha. Just hoping I don't end up reading in bed till 2am like this morning. Because those same kids that pass out right at 1215 will also come running in at 7am.

Mine will be most likely: Get absurdly drunk while hanging out with my lame dad friends on discord while staring at the WoW character selection screen and never be able to make up my mind on what to main, inevitably log off and dance around games for the night while getting even more drunk until I get sleepy. It’ll be good

This brings back so many memories, although back then it would have been ventrillo. Enjoy and happy NY.

I'm going to steep my lady grey tea for an extra 10 minutes. And a slightly larger wedge of lemon.

Hitting the same dive bar I go to all the time. Might go crazy and ALSO go to the other dive bar I go to sometimes as well. NYE is always a letdown

Ritz crackers with Cheese Wizz , some pizza bites and the Law and Order SVU marathon. I’m a fucking madman .

Home eating Korean bbq and drinking martinis


Likeapuma24 t1_j2f5b0n wrote

Where's your go-to Korean BBQ place?

Lived in Seoul years ago, and always am left disappointed by the recommendations I've been given.


ForagerBaker t1_j2fx1fb wrote

I’m at Seoul Barbecue right now in WeHa place is packed


handsomedevil1972 t1_j2fmj80 wrote

Truthfully I think there are only a few good Korean restaurants in ct. I can recall the one in Hartford or weha that was really good. I’m sure someone else might be able to chime in

The Russian Lady still popular?

Many moons ago I poked a hole In my finger ( very drunk ) by grabbing what I remember to be a stuffed bear ? I still have the scar . I think it was a taxidermy bear ? God those were the days , I don’t even drink anymore .

NYE “plans” are so overrated.


ComplicateEverything t1_j2f6ovs wrote

I wish I knew. I know that there's some kind of concert and the fireworks at midnight in Hartford Downtown. Hopefully, I'll be able to see the fireworks.


SD_Lostboy OP t1_j2f6w8e wrote

oh yeah there are fireworks at 6pm and midnight


ComplicateEverything t1_j2f8al7 wrote

Any ideas, what's the best place in the downtown to go so you can see the fireworks?


SD_Lostboy OP t1_j2fa2nh wrote

idk where they're shooting the fireworks off of, but in my experience go to that river walk place next to the childrens science center

othermegan t1_j2foqdd wrote

I was supposed to meet up with the guy I’ve been talking to for a few hours at a friend’s party before making my way home for an early bedtime (gotta take someone to Bradly tomorrow morning). But sounds like he’s too sick to come and I don’t really feel like spending new years surrounded by a bunch of drunk frat brothers that don’t realize they’re not in college anymore and friends who think they know everything about love because they happened to meet their fiancé in college and never experienced real heartbreak

So now I’m thinking I’ll just chill in my bed and be miserable alone rather than spend the last few hours of 2022 faking being happy around a bunch of strangers


StoneyG214 t1_j2fttmf wrote

Lame NYE for me, because of the rain and fog SO’s flight got delayed over 2 hours so have to grab her crazy late and we’ll miss the ball drop. Hopefully, I can stay awake (I’m old lol)


Pancrat t1_j2etivg wrote

I decided not to go downtown and get wasted. Not really comfortable there. West Hartford would be cool but I’ll probably just stay in maybe visit a friend.
