Hogmanay in Edinburgh's Old Town. It doesn't get much closer to the action than this.

To keep things nice and relaxed we're putting up 70 tickets for a private party at Salt Horse. Tickets include 6 drink tokens (bottle caps) and that can be a mix of draught beer (2/3rd or 1/3rd depending on the measure size on the board), wines (125ml) by the glass or soft drinks.

Food will be provided by the excellent Meat:Stack (There will be a veggie option, which is a Paneer burger) and you will need to have eaten by 9pm. Or you'll be annoyed, and hungry.

You'll receive an attractive hand stamp when you arrive which allows you to come and go as you please all night, unless you're plastered and then I'm afraid the law states that you need to go and get a kebab.

The draught beer list will look something like this... These are nailed on, we'll add more as we get closer. There will also be a plethora of exciting bottles in the fridge. 

Tegernseer - Helles - Lager
Kernel - as yet undecided - Pale Ale
Firestone Walker - Barrelworks Bretta Weisse - Barrel Aged Berliner Weisse
Fantome - Chocolat - Cocoa and Chilli saison
Evil Twin / Westbrook - Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break - Imperial Stout
Kernel - Biere De Saison Apricot - The best thing you'll put in your face, ever.

Tickets are £40.00 per person. The fireworks should be nice and easy to see from the top of the street, we'll let you know what the time is and when it would be best to make your way up or down the street to get a good view.

If you're drunk you won't be allowed in (or back in); it doesn't matter how much the ticket cost you or who your uncle Terry knows. Laws is laws, and besides, you'll ruin it for everyone else. We also can't refund once tickets have been purchased, but you can of course sell your tickets on, and if you need to do that we'll also help you.
