The Barista is going out. But if you insist on staying home and looking at the internet, you can see Times Square live on Panasonic’s Earthcam here. It may take a few minutes to load.

We’ll be back with pictures of Montclair First Night when it’s last night. Meanwhile, talk amongst yourselves. And don’t leave chips on the floor.

PS — It’s 7:08 pm and the fireworks have started. Or else it’s thunder. Or gunshots. Or very low loud-flying planes. Or the end of the world. We’re hoping fireworks.
