My original plans for New Year’s Eve were to work and then head over to my friend’s house in Davis for a small shindig consisting of Sing Star, Cranium, and of course, alcohol. However, my plans changed when I ended up getting off work around 11ish, which is later than what I had anticipated. So instead of rushing out to Davis during the last hour of 2010, I decided to stay in the Grid with my co-workers and party with them instead. And I’m glad I did, because I ended up having a blast. Here are some of the highlights:
- If you read my Christmas blog post, you know that my manager brought me and my co-workers some cognac and eggnog to drink after our shift. Well, this time she popped open two bottles of champagne for us to drink after our shift to help get our night started right. Like I said, the woman knows how to party.
- After leaving work, we headed over to a dive bar with a dance floor. The DJ played a lot of good music, but my favorite song of the night had to be “Apache” by The Sugarhill Gang. After screaming “This is my song!” I proceeded to perform my own rendition of this dance.
- I met not only one, but two cute guys that night; one of them bought me a drink, and the other asked for my number (Hey-O!). It had been a while since I had gone out and met/flirted with new guys, so even though the guys I met were just guys I met at a bar, and I already know nothing serious will come out of it, I still had fun being a flirt and embracing my singledom.
- There were about 15 of us in our group, which made for quite the party. It was awesome to gallivant around the Grid with such a big group of fun, drama-free people. My co-workers are all fantastic, so I was happy to receive the opportunity to drink, dance, and get to know them better outside of work. I heart them.
So, even though I had to work and missed out on my friend’s shindig in Davis, I still ended up having an awesome New Year’s Eve. In fact, I think it was the best one I’ve had in a while. If how one spends one’s New Year’s Eve is a reflection of the year ahead, then bring on 2011.
