New Year’s Eve 2008/2009

12/30/2008:

The same ritual every single year: What are your New Year’s Eve plans?

Will there be fireworks?

The big question this year – will the famous Bloomfield Street Fireworks come back? Or is the city still “clamping down” on the festive annual tradition that took place for 30 years? I’ve been asking around – and people seem to be a bit mum about it – which makes me wonder if they’re secretly going to bring it back… Anyone know?

Where will you “ring in” the new year?

Each year, you essentially have the same options. A good chunk of the bars & restaurants in Hoboken have some kind of “Open Bar” event. Pay a modest fee (between $75-$100) and get a few hours of unlimited drinks, some light fare, noise-makers, a DJ of some kind, etc. I believe it’s pointless to go through the whole list of options – because 99% of you probably already know what you’re doing. But in case you want an idea – take a look at this previous entry – most options remain the same (or similar).

But quite a few people I’ve spoken with are “laying low” this year – without the obligatory “I have to do…” feeling. What about you?

Why is everyone that responded to this blog such a “Debbie Downer” about New Years??

“…amateurs shooting fireworks at houses and cars”
“i hope the event is halted once and for all”
“find the street in ruins”

And who cares if “out-of-towners” are in our bars, I love to invite my “out-of-towner” friends to come in all the time and they have a blast here.

Lighten up a bit people and just try to have some fun, no matter where you end up. You dont have to be such a bunch of stiffs. Happy new year everyone :mrgreen:

I agree – it is frustrating that you can’t go out to the bars as usual when 90% of them have an open bar special. I like to hop around.
