N to the YE


Now, readers of this blog will know that I do not prefer (to put it mildly) to go out on New Year’s Eve.  Much like I avoid going out on St. Patricks or Cinco de Mayo or the other “party” holidays.  But far be it for me to dissuade those who DO enjoy it.  If you count yourself as one of these “wrong” people then you have three solid options from the Golden Road group/collective:
