what are you/did you do for new years eve?

For me were going out to dinner and some drinks before we party at a friends house to avoid the worry of finding a cab, etc. It is my roomates bday at 12am also so its a double celebration. For my cigar it will be a cohiba esplendido, i got it from the guy in the fur coat!

The time with my roomate on his bday should be fun since we have both hardly been around for the past month, and the cigar should be good because it actually comes from a great board member i met at the SC sit down.

You guys?

For me, it will be steak and lobster tails with wife and kids. Grilling in the snow. We will just hang out and watch the twilight zone marathon tonight and tomorrow (unless I can sneak downstairs and watch the Giant game.)

My first stick of the New year will be on Monday with CC, Bobberriffic and hopefully USMC6672. Really looking forward to the get together!

Wife and I are having some friends.

I'm hoping to light up an Edmundo that I've been saving for a special occasion. The guy on the corner said it was the real thing

I am just relaxing; just enjoyed a nice huge robusto Hoya de Nicaragua. I dodged getting mandated to work tonight, supervisor asked me if I wanted to work tonight, then tried to force me. I worked last New Years, and I seriously don't feel like working New Years in Oakland ever again!

I got together with about 60 friends, and we did a white elephant gift exchange to celebrate giveing something away and then recieving a new blessing for the new year. We all then had a pot luck supper.

After supper, we played Monopoly, and I KICKED BUTT!!!

An excellent time was had by all. The cigar will have to wait untill tomorrow afternoon I guess.

Happy New Year!!!!

I worked. I decided to switch with another driver to close thinking maybe It would be a busy night and I'd make some money. NOPE. I made decent money but most of the people were stingy with the tips and it was dead most of the night. The only things that made it enjoyable were my LGC Reserva Figurado Pyramid and delivering to the drunks. Not surprising I guess that I spent the fist part of my new year at work--since I'm there every other moment of my time.

I had duty, so I had to stay on the ship. No smokes and a wonderful spaghetti dinner that tasted like burning. I did see the ball drop on tv... well I heard it... mainly because my rack is right by the tv lounge and everyone was gettin all rowdy at midnight and woke me up.

My band played last night, then I went over to my friend's apartment and a bunch of us watched three movies, pausing to watch the ball drop. I got home a little after 4 this morning. Didn't find the time to smoke anything.

I was in Times Square like a dumbass! Went to a bar about 8pm and posted up, still hung over now, gotta be at work in an hour and a half!

My brother came with us and proposed to his girlfriend at midnight, pretty cool and unexpected.

Handed out Cusano 18's to my friends. As expected, dirty looks from most people, but then people were asking me if I had any extras. As a member from the greatest forum there is, I was prepared. What a great night. Wish you were all with me.

You're a brave man, USMC6672, but then again, with your occupation you can handle such a scene. Hope work goes okay.

Spent the evening at home, watching T.V. with my wife and daughter.
Watched the ball drop at midnight.
Followed by a new year love "session".

Can't get any better than that.

The wife worked all day yesterday and today. So me and my two youngest (8 & 10) spent the afternoon making dips, snacks, and chicken wings. My brother and sis-in-law, and a friend and her kids came over for thye festivities, we watched the ball drop, and we were all safe in our homes and beds by 1:30am. It was a nice night. Good food, beer, wine and company. My brother works in Boston, he is a research doctor(PhD). A large number of his co-workers are from Asia. They have a custom of banging pots with wooden spoons to drive away the bad spirits, so the new year will be a good one. I thought he was nuts, but we started to do this together every New Years Eve since 1999. I Guess it has become a tradition at my house. The kids really like it. and it seems to be working for us
Happy New Year everyone!!!!!!!!!
