New Year's Eve: What the town's cultural tastemakers are doing tonight

Comedian and Fine Gentleman Sam Tallent:

I'm not working. I've worked the last three or four years. Standups always work for New Year's; it's just part of the institution. But under guidance or duress, whatever you want to call it, from my girlfriend, I'm taking this year off. I'm going to Michigan, I'm meeting her parents for Christmas, and then we're spending New Year's in a cabin somewhere on a lake up there. They have many lakes. We're pretty much just going to be intimate and be comfortable and snuggle. New Year's Eve I don't like; I'm not a big party-party-get-wasted guy anymore. I used to love to rage, but now that I spend all my time in bars, I just don't want to hang out with bar people as much. So I'm going to spend it probably on drugs overlooking water, hopefully with my head in my girlfriend's lap. I'm really looking forward to New Year's Day, because they're releasing all the Arrested Developments, so I think we're going to spend our entire day in bed under the influence of narcotics watching Arrested Development. It's gonna be very simple. I used to want to go out and party and have all the fun, but I've gotten so old in my years now. and I don't like the hubbub. I'm going for solitude, tranquility. It'll be nice.
