Well, I can't believe I'm doing this, but here I am!
My sad tale, summed up briefly: 29 year old NYC native, somehow turned left when I should have hooked right and ended up in the Army after law school and have spent the last few years on active duty in such picturesque places as central Texas, central Oklahoma and northern Iraq.
An ongoing and insane family drama has everyone scattered across the East Coast and the holidays have sent most of my friends from college and law school friends to the four winds.
Nevertheless, my need to escape Oklahoma for a bit and remember what good pizza tasted like has brought me home to NYC...and alone on Christmas.
Are people still trying to do dinner and drinks tonight?
It is so lovely to see so many people wanting to celebrate Xmas Eve together in NY. Everyone is welcome tonight so please just rock up. I have arranged with Peep Thai that there will be a group of us (but they don't take reservations) so as long as everyone arrives as close to 730pm as possible they will be able to seat us!
The more the merrier...please just turn up...i have told everyone to just meet at the front bar...if you ike you can ask for Gina but i am a tiny blonde from Australia so hard to miss hahahaha
If you have any problems or questions please call me +13475361185 othrwise i will see you all tonight at Peep Thai at 7.30.
I have a few bars/clubs in mind for anyone wanting to head on afterwards but we can decide as we go.
Look forward to meeting you all tonight.
As a Dutch 26y/old girl from Amsterdam, I've been chasing my dreams by living in this magical city - been here for a month now. Loving every bit of it, but suddenly facing a Christmas spent alone makes me feel a little homesick (the unthinkable has happened).
But Google really IS your best friend and I am so happy to read I am not the only one spending Christmas alone, far far away from home.
Sadly enough I can't make it tonight so I truly hope that there'll be something planned for tomorrow?
OmG I just found this thread! I'm in the same predicament as everyone else. I hope it's not too late. I am alone tonight Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I'm up for going to a bar for drinks, have some late night dinner or whatever. I live in Brooklyn but could go to Manhattan as well.
Merry Xmas everyone! I'm with cpw777 & cleopatra; how about making great plans for Christmas Day?
I'm interested in this concept. I'm fairly new to NYC and have no real Christmas plans. I live in Greenpoint Brooklyn and I would prefer to stay around here but I'm up for anything. Please include me in any ideas you come up with.
Im in Manhattan now, nearby Central Park - great (and lots of) bars here - but besides that I'm up for anything as well.
It was great to meet you all last night!! It was a bloody brilliant night! Thanks Em for starting this off and Gina for being a fantastic organiser!
My head has finally stopped pounding and i can feel my feet again so definitely up for doing something tonight.
Mel and i are meeting for dinner, not sure where yet but probably around 7pm in the Times Square area.
Hope you can join.
My number is +44 75 9565 4970.
O awesome Prenisha! Your number is tripping me out lol. Is that right? Btw i wont be coming from work so i wont be wearing a suit:P
You guys are all a bunch of troopers! Last night was a blast, and I'm paying for it today with a horrendous hangover. A bunch of y'all have my Facebook already, so let me know if you guys do anything tonight. If I can force my body to rally, I will make the trip from Bklyn!
