New Year’s 2006(7)

Tag: Friends,Fun,General,HolidaysEmily @ 9:37 am

This year we went to Shimmers (formally known as Barrett’s) in Ft. Wright.  We got dinner, dessert and champagne, then hung out until the ball drop listening to Just Gravy.  Some of Jim and Cathy’s friends play in the band, we’ve listened to them before and loved them. 

The funniest part of the night was the ball drop.  We were in the ballroom of Shimmers so there weren’t any TVs.  The band stopped playing at about 2 till midnight, we got our champagne and headed to the dancefloor.  We waited and waited, but no countdown.  We started laughing because our cells phones said 12:01.  At 12:02, the manager finally came running out of the kitchen yelling “7! 6! 5!….”  Whoop-de-doo!  So we basically missed it; it was pretty funny.

We had a great time though; good company & good music.  Can’t ask for much more.  Happy New Year everyone!  And try to remember to write “07” on everything now!
