"The midnight gang's assembled
And picked a rendezvous for the night."
--Jungleland, Born to Run
Who doesn't love "Jungleland"? Seriously. Point that person out to me, so I can mock him for his overwhelming lameness.
I feel that same way about New Year's Eve, one of my favorite nights of the year. People will often complain about New Year's Eve, saying that they have too much pressure on them to find something fun to do. This complaint is frequent among the "party" holidays, such as Halloween and St. Patrick's Day. These folks need to gain some perspective - if going to a friend's place to hang out and drink is your biggest source of stress, you are leading a pretty darn good life. New Year's Eve isn't much more complicated than assembling your favorite gang at midnight and picking a place to meet. I'd suggest going to that giant Exxon sign that brings this fair city light.
