New Year's Eve?

  • December 31, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Here's the latest a/o 12/26:

I must limit the wait list to males because of space constraint in handling as many as 60 people.  Anyone wishing to contribute so that I may purchase a bigger house is welcome to do so.I encourage guys to sign up. I will to the extent I can get you around the waiting list.

For those of you who have not made plans and don't wish to spend an arm and a leg for a New Years Event consider coming to my home. Meet new folks. I have included the Social Boomers Meetup group in this event. As of this writing (12/23) there are 20 signed up for the event. I plan on serving a spaghetti entree. You provide your favorite beverage for the evening plus a snack, side or desert.

There will be dancing. 

Various competitive activities available should you be inclined. Watch the NYC Ball ring in the new year on a 65 inch plasma TV or on one of the other smaller sets.


I need your sign up to be a firm yes or no by Dec. 27 because stuff has to be purchased (if you want to eat, have ice, have party favors, etc). You know what to do if you sign up and your plans change.

I will post the combined total reservations for your information as we head into the 31st.

You are welcome to bring others outside this Meetup group

    A question about the name tag game...Any question or does it have to be one answered with a simple yes or no? If any question is allowed, my first question will be..what's the name on the name tag?
