With everyone and their granny starting to lose their minds over Christmas and the fast approaching chaos that comes along with it, I thought it would be nice to take a step back and think about New Years Eve (or Hogmanay to us Scottish ones) and what we all have planned.
Now, pre-babies, I was always one for making an appearance at George Square to celebrate the New Year… bringing in the bells with my best friends, any random alcoholic drink that was on offer and whatever band was playing. Unfortunately, this usually resulted in me spending New Years Day suffering from the effects of hypothermia, a belter of a hangover and no memory of the previous night.
Oh to be 19 again.
These days, because I’m getting older and even more boring, I would much rather spend the night with my family, a glass or two of prosecco and lots (and lots) of food, watching the rubbish that is Hogmanay television. The onesie may even make an appearance.
This was my plan, until I heard about Hogmanay at Zizzi.
Welcome in the new year with tasty Italian food in beautiful, grade II listed surroundings…
This New Year, Zizzi’s are hosting a Hogmanay party in their gorgeous new restaurant in Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow. I can speak from experience and say that every time I have been to this particular Zizzi’s, the service, food and atmosphere have always been amazing!
On the 31st of December, from 8pm until 3am, Zizzi’s are offering:
An Irn Bru cocktail on arrival
A gorgeous, Italian, 5 course meal.
Live music from Sophie Rodgers Music
A late night buffet.
Auld Lang Syne at midnight.
A prosecco or whisky to toast the New Year.
The Jack Dames playing until 2:30am.
Tickets are priced at £59.95 and can be booked online on their website at www.zizzi.co.uk, by calling 0141 221 2000 or by popping into the restaurant.
What better way to bring in the New Year than with friends and family, amazing food, great music and a fantastic atmosphere… (and who doesn’t love an Irn bru cocktail?!)
Get your tickets soon before they are sold out! It promises to be an incredible night!
