Where to party in York on Black Wednesday

Everyone knows the day before Thanksgiving is one of the biggest party nights of the year.

Friends are home for the holidays, and it’s a chance to catch up with people you haven’t seen in months. But most people do a little more than catch up.

Thanksgiving Eve has come to be known as Black Wednesday, short for Blackout Wednesday – aka the day you go out and get blackout drunk before spending Thanksgiving Day with family.
