It came to me as a potentially good idea, that could combine the best bits of a houseparty with a bit of variety, and also watching the NYE fireworks from somewhere by the river, which is pretty much what I want to do on NYE.
If we're staying in London, then I'd like to make sure I spend at least some of it out and about in SE1, enjoying some of the things that make this such a great place to live in.
And the multi-venue thing was, IMHO, a way to keep things moving along, and to share the effort. It wouldn't be much effort to host a little bit of a party, and everyone generally has at least one drink/one snack that they make really well (Vodka and chips definitely count, before anyone asks). The walk between venues could be used profitably to do fun things like: the "try to tell a joke worse than one of Jon's" competition; Hot Buttered Rum/Cider pitstops; etc
Just a thought.
...if you press it, they will come.
