I am torn, I have 2 pretty solid options for New Years this year, but I can't decide what to do, here are my options:
A) go to Columbus, OH (approx. 3 hr drive) to hang out with my buddy Mark from college.
This was the original plan, and I was going to drive down Saturday afternoon, stop to visit my aunt along the way, and spend Saturday and Sunday down there.
I went to college in Columbus and havent been there in almost 2 years.
I would get to visit my aunt who is really sick and I may not get the opportunity to see her again if I wait too long, and I know I'd have fun with Mark.
He is recently engaged and sort of has it planned to fix me up with his friend Samantha for the weekend to see whats there.
Anyway, I would also likely miss the game Sunday, I wouldnt get to have my son at my house at all for the weekend (but I am visiting him tonight and am actually there right now), and it would probably cost about $120 for the weekend.
B) Go to Pittsburgh with my friend Erik, his fiancee, and a bunch of her friends.
If I did this, I 'wouldnt have to drive at all, I would just leave with Erik Sunday around 4.
I would get to watch the Vikings, keep my son friday and saturday night, and this would cost $15 to get into the club they're going to, split the cost of a cab about 4 ways, possibly more, and then some $$ while out.
I'd probably end up spending $60-70.
I already kind of hooked up with one of Eriks fiancees friends, and another one thats going, that I believe is single, is like drop dead gorgeous.
Don'tg know if I'd have a chance with her, but it would be nice to find out.
However I would not get to see my aunt in Delaware, OH.
Also my friend and his fiancee fight more than anyone I know, so there would likely be stupid drama for no reason.
Both of them have bailed on me before, so I dont really have a problem telling either one no.
I think Id have more fun in Columbus, but Pittsburgh would save me some dough.
Also, I am thinking the club they are going to in Pittsburgh is a dance club, considering it cost $ to get into.
I have to be in the right mood, and a little buzzed to dance, so I may go there and not have fun.
I dont want to drive to Columbus on a holiday weekend, because Im not a speeder, but if I happen to zone out for a minute and all of sudden be speeding and pass a cop, a ticket on a holiday weekend would suck.
What should I do???
Columbus or Pittsburgh?
