How To Spot The Real Boozehounds On New Year’s Eve

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Tomorrow night (Dec. 31) is expected to be the biggest drinking night of the year but a San Diego-based bartender prefers to call it: “Rookie night.”

Ed Decker says New Year’s Eve can be really annoying to “professional drinkers” who have to deal with newbies who start fights, create “silly dramas,” and “don’t know how to order drinks in a timely and organized fashion.”

He says the best way to minimize contact with rookies is by leaving the house no earlier than 11:15 p.m. That way you miss the riff-raff and have more energy for the after party.

Decker says the rule of thumb is that the average New Year’s Eve after party attracts about 10 to 20 “accomplished boozers” so it’s important to prepare accordingly earlier in the day and have plenty of booze.

Finally, Decker says drinking at midnight doesn’t make you a true boozehound and figures the real sign is if you’re waiting for a bar to open at 6 a.m. the next morning.
