New Year Eve Drinking Thread

Submitted by tdcarl on December 31st, 2012 at 9:53 PM

I can't be the only one enjoying a few drinks on this fine New Years Eve. I'm surprised there isn't a thread quite yet.


I'm on my 5th or so Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter.

How about you guys?

Not to be a pre-Madonna, but about time someone starts this thread! Drinking Tezon tequila, and for all intensive purposes, getting hammered. Happy New Year all, go blue Mañana!

I have the Peach Bowl (using Seth-approved name) and some Strongbow cider at the moment. I made beef enchiladas for dinner - slow cooked the beef in salsa verde, fresh chopped cilantro and diced onion, with a smattering of diced serrano peppers. Turned out nicely, I might add.

after the girlfriends friends (we're in her hometown right now) said they'd be house party hopping in downtown Cincinnati, which I currently can't participate in due to a fucked up knee. Turns out her dad had the perfect materials for a BP table downstairs, so we're going to play some pong with her little brother and enjoy premium satellite on their very big TV. Not all that shabby, even if it is way more lame than being at UC tonight.

We're drinking champagne all night, with a few Yuengling's mixed in.

The first NYE I've spent at home since I was 17, and if feels STRANGE. The Mrs. got me a case of Miller High Life while she was out, and I'm going to have those in between shots of Crown. Happy New Year to all, and Go Blue, beat the Cocks!

And am drinking my west coast IPA (Stone, enjoy by 12-21-12) out of a Jolly Pumpkin glass.

Switching to Cabernet, and making my famous "kid-mosas" for my kids, who talked me into staying up to the "real" midnight. We are on the west coast, and I like to celebrate midnight at 9 because I'm old.

It's my go-to any time I'm in California.

Jolly Pumpkin distribution is so spotty in Chicago that every time I see some in a Binny's I buy like  5 bottles because I'm never sure if it'll be there the next time.  Any bar that has Jolly Pumpkin on tap immediately goes into my pantheon.

Blows... Just opened a 2008 bottle of Gamba wine ( it's a Zinfandel from Sonoma County) my wife is 8 months prego with our 2nd and I'm watching Hook the movie from 1991. Ya pretty sweet night especially since I'm only 32 and pretty use to going out but I guess that won't happen til 2014! Go Blue beat the old ball coach
