Are Your New Years' Eve Getting Old?

I look back upon the many New Years' Eve parties I have attended. There were dances, dinner dances, house parties, pay at the door parties,etc. There were some great times had, with great friends. About 10 years ago, we started to put on a gourmet dinner for our sons and their friends (or girlfriends!) before everyone left for the drinking part. This assured they at least had a stomach full of solid food before the boozing began! This year, I am making my Wicked White Chili for my sons' girlfriends' parents party. We are bringing an appetizer to a Texas Hold'em card party with friends(wives&husbands!) which should minimize my efforts. It's a bitch to get old-not for the obvious reasons, but for the ones you didn't see coming! Like staying awake 'til midnight instead of staying awake all night!

I've always referred to New Years' Eve as "Amateur Hour". People who drink little or rarely decide tonights' the night! It's probably the best night of the year to kick back and observe the action!

I always do the same thing:

Watch the last 15 minutes of Dick Clark's Rockin' New Years Eve. One year, I think I watched the whole thing, but all it was was singing and build up.
