We ended up having a great time ringing in the New Year downtown. The bar was busy, but the lines weren’t bad, we witnessed some unlikely hook-ups and some drunken debacles, snagged some free drinks, pretended to be the fashion police (but just amongst ourselves, don’t worry! We’re not mean!), and practiced our French with some Quebecers. It was a regular night at the bar really, but everyone was so happy with the countdown to midnight; champagne and confetti rained down from the second floor. I basically treated this night out as a hybrid between a few hours of Zumba and crazy karaoke – it wasn’t perfect, but I had a blast with some of my closest friends. I hope the last hours of 2011 were good to you, and the first of 2012 have been even better!
To recover from the partying of the night before I hosted a little New Years Day lunch. What better way to recover from the first hangover of 2012 than with a good meal? I served way too much food (I over estimated the hunger of hungover people!), but here’s a little taste:
Recipes to come, but since I need to start going to bed earlier (it’s not really a resolution, I just need more sleep), it will be tomorrow. Happy Happy New Year!!
