Wise Guys: What’s a Man’s Ideal New Year’s Eve?

Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: “What’s your ideal New Year’s Eve?” To ask the guys your own question, click here.

Married Straight Guy (Ben D.): For a married guy, the kids are away at the grandparents’, and we’re either at a bar or big private party with a lot of our friends and plenty of booze.  Afterwards we all head to the hotel, which conveniently has a 24-hour pool and hot tub.  Then back up to the room to properly ring in the new year with the missus.  Essentially, getting a chance to party and be wild again, like you’re 25 with no responsibilities.  Best part about hooking up with your wife is no worries on STDs, pregnancy, or awkward moments in the morning.

Single Straight Guy (Scott Phrenetik): A good house party is really where it’s at for New Year’s Eve. There’s no need to go out somewhere super crowded and over-priced to ring in the new year. Additionally, the opportunity to meet new people is much greater in that kind of atmosphere and will better lend itself to finding someone to share a kiss with when the clock strikes midnight.

Single Gay Guy (Abraham Zeus Zapata): Reminiscing with family and friends early in the evening, heading home early to avoid drunk drivers, then having incredible sex while the big ball drips, I mean, drops.

Our “wise guys” are a rotating group of contributors, some of whom wish to remain anonymous and some of whom like the attention. This week’s Single Gay Guy is Abraham Zeus Zapata, an actor, writer and artist living in the Houston area; our Single Straight Guy is Scott Phrenetik, who moonlights as a DJ in Dallas; and our Married Straight Guy is Ben D., a former professional fighter who would now much rather spend time with his wife and baby son than get punched in the face by a sweaty man.
