I go back home to the States in 2 weeks and am having surgery almost the day after I get back, so it's pretty serious. I was hoping to get something close-ish so I don't have to walk a whole lot.

At this point in time, I doubt I'll find much of anything, so I'll probably just go to Taichung with some friends or something.

It's New Year's Eve 2012....


P.S. New Year's Eve is still in 2011, New Year's is 2012. Technically I'm right in my phrasing.


Technically maybe but you're still wrong. It's the eve of 2012. :bow:
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

The Far Eastern with a room facing the 101? The Agora Garden, Meridien or W? The last two might be a little too close though, as they are within a few blocks of the 101.

I seriously doubt much will be going on in Taichung on New Year's Eve. That requires stuff open past 10:30.

Last year, there was a big party at the stadium in Taichung. I remember cause it was my 3rd day here, and it was a bit of a culture shock to be one of 9 white people in a stadium full of Asians. Lol.

I know the feeling. A few years ago, there was a basketball onternational championship. In a 10 thousand people stadium, 4 of us were cheering for our country's team. It pummeled the local Taiwanese champions like kittens. So bad, Taiwanese people started streaming out. We felt really self conscious.
