This New Year's eve...

I'm trying to figure out a plan for this NY eve at the bar I work at.
Coincidentally the date is 01/01/11 which translates to 23.
Cute.

My initial ideas were a black and white theme with old b&w robot films, the Mr is bringing in his synth cabinet to make some noise and people would be encouraged to dress accordingly.

Another thought would be something kind of discordian themed but.. well that's where it falls apart for me. What happens in cases like this? What kind of celebrations are there, really?

Duh?

Honestly, I think the robot theme sounds pretty fun.  There might be a tie-in with binary somewhere too considering it's 01-01-11. 
Cynicism is a blank check for failure.

Do binary, 50's robot style.  The Discord will take care of itself.

tell people to party like the world's actually ending at midnight.


At midnight you play some loud noises and then kill the bar's power

I like the robot/binary theme too--you're good at painting robots, so somehow this seems to fit nicely.

:lulz:

Well cool. The robots are a go then. Besides, I like robots.
I think I can mix the 50's style with end of the world.
This should be fun

You could always play War of the Worlds or something while you're taking a DJ break...

There will be pics, right?  I mean, if I can't come, I at least want to enjoy your party vicariously.

Fancy sit-down dinner party with Female Best Friend. TANDEM COOKING FTW!!!

Also, it is at her annual NYE dinner party where I met Mr. Language for the first time three years ago, and he made friendly small talk with me but I don't remember him at all.  :lol:

Murder Mystery party.  Not sure how that's going to work out but no matter what part I'll be able to double as the holiday ham.

Possibly. Thought I usually shy away from cameras, so we'll see.

But you are beautiful! We want to see you being drunk and glorious and beautiful. Ham it up, dammit.

Actually, I was hoping for pictures of the robots.  ;)

Well of course there would be pics if any robots actually show up.

I wonder if I can get away with setting off fireworks over the milk factory, in the city...
