The Drunkest Night of the Year: Thanksgiving Eve Choose Your Own Adventure

Thanksgiving EveI don’t know if this is just a Midwest thing or if everyone else experiences this too, but Thanksgiving Eve is usually the drunkest night of the year.

You’ve seen it in cheesy made for TV holiday movies – going back to your hometown, meeting up with old high school friends at the local bar, maybe making some bad decisions.

This year of course, things may look differently with COVID, but let’s take a step back in time to when Thanksgiving Eve was basically a high school reunion.

We at The People’s Counsel are all about a good party but we can’t stress enough the importance that everyone enjoy responsibly so they don’t have to come to us with DUI/DWI.

Choose Your Own Thanksgiving Eve Adventure below.

Remember to call a Lyft or Uber this Thanksgiving Eve if you’re out drinking. Enter your email here to receive a free ride home on The People’s Counsel (first come first serve).
