Yer went to one about 3 years ago, was amazing tbh. Would be good to go again without the parents and now I can actually drink legally (didn't stop much tbh XD)

I don't think big street parties are the way to go.

House parties, on the other hand. Got twelve Miller and eight Blackthorn for under a tenner at Tesco this morning in prep.

Blackthorn is a serviceable enough cider, and for under two quid for a four pack you can't really go wrong Wink

Y'all have a good time, and stay safe.

Never had any cider with blackcurrant except that Koppaberg one. Tastes like juice.

Four pack of Blackthorn (440ml) x2 = 3.94

Twelve pack of Miller (330ml) x1 = 6

Also bought two cans of JD and coke, but they were 2 each.

I think I'm also Blackthorning it up. Tastes horrible if y'ask me, but then it is alcohol, as opposed to Fanta.

Magners or Bulmers is a fine, sweet cider.

Cider is one of those drinks where, after you've got hammered once off it, it then makes you feel sick every time you drink it afterwards.

The actual street party was great, and no doubt shitted all over your "Hey is it a special event? I guess not because we're a bunch of teens getting drunk in someone's parents' house a la every saturday night ever" house party, but at times during the eight hour wait to get back home I wanted to die.

Hehe, truth be told I'd have no doubt enjoyed your kinda night too. It's all just big talk - had we been invited to one we might not have went to Edinburgh at all.
We ended up sleeping rough because we're idiots and assumed because it was hogmanay it'd be fine; it wasn't. Did everyone else enjoy themselves?
