The biggest bar night of the year isn't Halloween, the Super Bowl or even New Year's Eve. It's the Wednesday evening before Thanksgiving, traditionally when people are home for the holidays and don't have that last-minute shopping to take care of like at Christmastime.
Don't be left out in the cold for this year's debauchery. Wicker Park's Plan B Bar and Kitchen is hosting a Thanksgiving Eve "B Thankful" party on Wednesday, Nov. 26 replete with food specials, including half-off appetizers like parmesan-and-garlic fries, mac-and-cheese wedges and artichoke fritters (don't worry, you'll be hungry again tomorrow). Drink offers include Jameson whiskey shots, Southern Comfort-and-lime shots and martinis, all for $3, and $2 domestic canned beer. Local DJ Daddy will spin '80s classics, vintage rock and old school hip-hop, setting the appropriately nostalgic vibe. Hey, isn't that your old high school girlfriend by the bar?
