I want to quickly mention Time Square in New York. If a tourist is planning it and has an American friend in New York, then you can forget about rocking in the countdown with your friend.

I suspect it is the same here. No Parisien wants to stand in the freezing cold for a couple of houre to see the fireworks off the Eiffel tower.

There is a group created by a portuguese guy

http://www.couchsurfing.org/group_read.html?gid=35336&post=7140025

so far there are 35 people + 16 guests interested in partying the new year in Paris. Me and my 4 friends included.
I havent spoken to anyone, but i can guess that most of the people want the eiffel tower fireworks experience (guilty- again, me included)

what i think would be great though, is if some parisiens could put out some posts for house parties, that we could come to before and after midnight (we sneek away for the spectacle and come back)

This is exactly what i have done in other countries, just that paris is so high profile, so many people will be coming - it might take a few people offering different parties for it to work.

(please at least invite me and my friends...........hee)

I'm trying to surf, but having no luck. lots of declines. :( But a parry would be awesome. I too want to do the touristy Champs thing (I am in Paris and how many times will I be there for NYE?) but a party would be awesome, too.

Maybe in a week people could start organizing a room if others aren't having any luck finding couchs? 39 euro is pretty cheap and on par with (the few) hostels left.

I'm totally into the idea of parties before and after the Eiffel tower countdown as I would also like to do the cliche' haha. Anyone else that's wanting to do that let me konw, I'd love to tag along. That's the only solid thing I WANT to do is the countdown there, as for everything else, I'm open to anything!
