Either Places or Place

Happy New Year, everyone!

I was earlier writing the following sentence, and I hit a snag when I came to the determiner, "either": should it be followed by a plural noun (=places) or a singular noun (=place)?
"I shall seriously discourage you from coming to either place(s)._"
