Blackout Wednesday

Welcome to Thanksgiving Eve, one of the biggest party nights of the year. Here's my recent article explaining the phenomenon.

People call it Black Wednesday -- or less tactfully, Blackout Wednesday. Bar often attribute the large crowds to the social reunions that happen when friends come home for the holidays.

Almost every bar will likely be crowded tonight. Need plans? Here are some highlights.

One quick matter of business: Tonight's Young Jeezy concert at the Columbus Civic Center has been postponed. Get details here.

Flip Flops, 1111 Broadway, hosts a performance by Brent Stephens. There's no cover and action starts at 9 p.m.

The Shanty Shack, 4475 Warm Springs Road, hosts a Pre-Turkey Day Bash with no cover charge. Spend $20 or more on drinks and get a free 10-inch pizza 3 p.m.-10 p.m.
