Blackout Wednesday: Where to celebrate ‘drinksgiving’

November 24, 2021

"Drinksgiving" or "Blackout Wednesday" is the day before Thanksgiving and is considered one of the single biggest party nights of the year.

The extended four-day weekend coupled with the influx of out-of-town friends and college students returning home makes the pre-holiday revelry especially popular with twenty-somethings.

Many of Chicago’s LGBTQ bars are hosting events to help you indulge your wildest self and get crazy on November 24. 

Drink responsibly and take a rideshare 

Uber and Lyft are offering to be your free designated drivers for the evening — check your local providers for details. Download the Uber and Lyft apps now. 

Anheuser-Busch is getting in the act, too, with a partnership between Budweiser and Uber called Zero Hour. On November 24, across 30 cities—including Chicago—anyone who partakes in a complimentary Budweiser Zero beer between 12 and 1 a.m. local time (or by signing a pledge to drink responsibly on Thanksgiving Eve via Budweiser’s social media) can score $25 off their ride home from the bars.
