Is "Black Wednesday" the Biggest Drinking Night of the Year?

Many people know all about Black Friday, but did you know that the day before Thanksgiving has become infamous as well? Black Wednesday has slowly but surely become one of the most popular drinking nights of the year, with bars across the country experiencing huge bumps in business. Every year, law enforcement ramps up its DUI/DWI efforts with an increased officer presence and checkpoints set up to detain drivers suspected of intoxication. Even rideshare services like Uber offer special promotions on the evening before Thanksgiving to encourage partiers not to get behind the wheel.

Why is Black Wednesday such a big party night? Part of it is because most Americans have Thanksgiving off. Many people ring in the holidays by celebrating with family and friends without having to worry about going to work the next day. While having a few drinks with your friends can be a fun way to get in the holiday spirit before slaving in front of the stove, it can get people into trouble if it impairs their ability to drive home safely. With DUI patrols actively searching for drunk drivers, an arrest could really put a damper on your holiday. Don’t let this happen to you!
