Need Plans For “Blackout Wednesday”? Here’s Where To Go In Mercer County
It’s officially Thanksgiving week, which means the biggest party night of the year is just a few days away. Blackout Wednesday, Drinksgiving, Thanksgiving Eve, or whatever you call the national holiday, is officially THE biggest bar night of the year in America.
It surpasses New Year's Eve and St. Patrick's day, which is insane to me! It’s also the night that you go out to your local bars and see just about everyone you went to high school with and have your annual, unofficial reunion. There are plenty of bars to check out this Drinksgiving in Mercer County, NJ, but these are just a few that will really have you thinking to yourself, “hair of the dog”, while sipping your champagne with your family on Thanksgiving day.
