So my plan is
- restrict drink to only slight blur in one eye (left eye best as I know I'm in trouble when it's a right eye session )
- eat seafood, pasta and salad ( no breads or spuds) and not so I am "full as an egg" level
- remember most of the evening ( at least 40%)
- not call/text old friends with "I miss you" messages ( 100% needed on this one)
- try to leave the late night snacks alone if I return worse for wear ( double eye blur, memory loss level of alcohol or the "just a cognac snifter before bed " )
My guess is about 50% level of success
