It’s a funny thing about Thanksgiving. Some people love it for the cozy family and friend bonding time; others loathe it due to the the stress involved with travel and potential family feuds.

Regardless of which of the aforementioned camps you’re part of, the Drinksgiving event at The Oxford Social Club is the perfect way to pre-funk for the big day. If you’re excited about Thanksgiving, it’s the perfect kick-off to a joyful weekend. On the other hand, if you’re dreading Turkey day, then it’s the perfect time to drown your sorrows and/or gain a little liquid courage to deal with the challenges ahead.

Drinksgiving at The Oxford Social Club. Did you know that the evening before Thanksgiving is one of the biggest nights for going out? This is especially true in San Diego’s bustling Gaslamp Quarter, and we’re definitely going to be part of the celebration! The Oxford Social Club, located in the Pendry San Diego, is the perfect place to celebrate Drinksgiving. We’ll be featuring some great music from Scooter and Lavelle. DJ Scooter and Lavelle Dupree are award winning DJs unto themselves; but together, they create an unforgettable party experience.

Drinksgiving: a real holiday? While you’re unlikely to find “Drinksgiving” listed on most wall calendars or day planners, it is a recognized phenomenon in pop culture. The evening before Thanksgiving is referred to as either “Drinksgiving,” or sometimes “Black Wednesday” or “Blackout Wednesday” (as a sort of joking alternative to Black Friday, the popular shopping day which comes directly after Thanksgiving).

Why make drinking a tradition before the holiday? Primarily because, well, people can and so they do. Plus, it’s great fun. Relatively few people work on Thanksgiving Day, and universities are closed. This means that there’s a large contingent of people who find themselves with a Wednesday wherein they don’t have consequences or a required wake-up time the next day! In some areas, “Drinksgiving” is an even bigger party night than New Year’s Eve or St. Patrick’s Day.

So take advantage of this pre-holiday sensation, and enjoy! Of course, always be sure to take the proper precautions to enjoy a safe night out, including taking taxis, having a designated driver, and enjoying drinks in moderation!
