I can understand that for sure...It USED to be that way.
Now, the liquor laws are enforced more than ever, so Thanksgiving Eve isn't the "party" it used to be.
Kinda like New Years Eve...
The busiest nights in the local bars I play are in order 1 Halloween, 2 thanksgiving eve, 3 New Year’s Eve.I've always heard it's such a hot night... but I've gigged several Thanksgiving Eve's and never had one that was really busy. I think people go to bars to catch up more than they go to venues with a DJ to dance.
Offof 404 on the way to the Delaware beaches or Ocean CIty, MD there is what I consider a true hometown bar. It is literally, and likely the only bar around for like 8+ miles. It is on the side of the high way with a gravel parking lotThanksgiving eve is the biggest club night of the year cuz everyone comes home, especially the college kids. Also those that don’t go out normally, may go out with friends they haven’t seen in a while who are visiting family for the weekend. Add that virtually no one works the next day, in a large metro area all clubs do VERY well... but it’s more of a club atmosphere here than a small local bar.
I Always wished to experience a small town atmosphere such as this one depicted in the video...obviously it’s a humorous video but still something that just doesn’t exist where I’m from. Just something I’ve been curious about.
