Exactly 10 years ago, Nik & I went to First Night Boston, and somewhere on Boylston Street around Hereford or Gloucester I gave her an engagement ring. This year, I luckily got New Year's Eve off from work, so we went to First Night again.
We saw a Shakespeare-themed concert (good), two stand-up comics (good), a few minutes of improv (terrible), and a short opera by Antonio Salieri (we both still don't like opera). And as with any special occasion, there was sushi. Nik washed down the raw fish with a peppermint mojito -- an interesting mix of flavors.
We also spent some time getting amused by drunks.
Happy new year to you.
