Five Ways to Spend New Year's Broke
It's New Year's Eve, and you're in the mood to get down and boogie-woogie. Problem is, well, your bank account is tapped out until next payday. And then rent is due on Tuesday, so you're in a bit of a hole. A limousine, with Cristal in hand, dropping $500 for a table type of NYE isn't in the cards for you. No problem. You know County Grind has your back. We've culled a list of the top five ways to have a blast this January 31, without having to spend any of your nonexistent loot.
1. Attend your city's local fireworks extravaganza with a hidden fifth of your favorite sin juice in your back pocket and a pair of 3D glasses.
We use the term "extravaganza," loosely here because it all depends on where you call home. And the fifth of booze is crucial.
Take a few pulls, plop on those glasses leftover from Thor 3D before the fireworks start shooting off, and have yourself a grand old time. The 3D glasses will add another dimension to your New Year's Eve revelries. It'll be like you're tripping at MOMA, or a laser light show or something. Trust us on this.
