Lupe feels that wherever she is, on ANY day of the year, that is just where the party is happening, or about to happen. Therefore, usually she does not celebrate "Amateur Night."

This year, Lupe got all dressed up at 11 o'clock in the morning. Hopefully her premature costuming will help overcome the lack of holiday cheer. She understands not celebrating the consumer frenzy of America's cultural holiday, Christmas. But she is not sure why so many people are ignoring tonight's annual Bacchanal?

Three months from now you probably won't remember the reason that made you decide to not do anything for New Year's. In three months you will remember, however, the stunning get up you pulled together out of nowhere, the invitation you accepted at the last minute... and perhaps the hangover you had, coyote ugly "date" you woke up with... okay, well, go out and be fabulous, but don't overdo it!

It's not too late to put on a crazy New Year hat, throw together something dressy, or a full-on masquerade ball costume. Then, come on down to the Loop-- there are plenty of places to join the party!

Lupe thinks it is even more important to celebrate when times are lean than it is to celebrate when times are fat!!!


EDIT: What a fabulous celebration at the Delmar Lounge!!! Yummy garlic fries, jerk chicken, and those delicious grits! No cover, free glass of champagne, plus plenty of red, white and blue hats, noisemakers and tiaras. (I won't say "leftover Fourth of July" if you won't ;o) Rail drinks were $3 and the place was well attended. Everyone was merry and bright and there was much laughter!!!

Lupe did not get as bedazzled and bejeweled as she had planned, as the evening turned into a night more about relaxing and enjoying the company of friends and loved ones, and texting Happy New Year's wishes to Los Angeles and other parts of the known and unknown universe.

It was a wonderful and promising night here in the Delmar Loop!!!
