2020 has been a year none of us will forget. As it draws to an end and we ask ourselves is it possible to still celebrate New Years Eve in the midst of a Pandemic? And the answer is Yes! It may be different but if we have learned anything from 2020 it is that we can adapt. And nothing will stop us raising a glass to say cheerio 2020 and welcome 2021!
Take this year to cherish the extra time we have with our families. It’s likely they will be the only people we are permitted to see anyway. Technology has been a good friend this year, some of us had not even heard of Zoom before Covid descended upon us. There’s still time to get yourselves organised, send out those invites to friends and sit back and log in on New Years Eve.
You choose. If pajamas have been your uniform for the latter part of the year you may wish to take the opportunity to get dressed up. Black tie at home? Why not?
For us live music is our favourite entertainment. Whilst we cannot see the usual chaos of people packed shoulder to shoulder into our pub listening, dancing and singing along to one of our many amazing local bands we will instead log in online to one of the many streaming events taking place.
For the first time in history Scotland’s Hogmany Celebrations will be hosted online. David Tennant will be your host for the evening.
And finally, a very important part to the evening. What will be your drink of choice when you raise a glass to toast the beginning of a New Year? Gin is going to our choice for the evening. Chase Sloe & Mulberry Gin mixed with Fever Tree Sicilian Lemonade will be in my glass and an Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin and Fever Tree Mediterranean for the other half.
We will be raising a glass to our customers old and new. Bring on 2021.
