Is the night before Thanksgiving a big bar night all across the country, or is it a regional thing? Why is it such a big deal?
I'm in Michigan, and it's been a well-known fact as long as I can remember that the night before Thanksgiving is the biggest bar night of the year. I've participated in my share of pre-Thanksgiving drunkenness, but never really figured out if this is just a Michigan thing or if it's all over the place? Does anyone know why it's such a big night to go out boozing?
