Cruising hot posts, something caught my eye and made me think: does anyone want to try to put together a Chowhound gathering for New Year's Eve?
Frankly, I can't think of a better way to spend that hideous evening -- at least the food will be good and the company will be lively.
I've had so many miserable NYE's trying to have a festive evening and failing, it couldn't help but be an improvement.
We'd have to start planning now, though (or maybe it's already too late).
A private room at a restaurant? Rent a room and have a potluck + cover charge to pay for it? Other?
