Birthday plans

Yes, it's stupidly far in advance. Yes, it's a stupidly long poll. I have no defence.

At the tail-end of September I reach a fannishly significant age, and I'm intending to mark the occasion with a suitably disreputable party.
However since I'm not a great decision-maker, I'm seeking the advice of the readership.
