I usually do. How is that different than Walmart being open?

by evening most normal people will go anywhere to get away from their family or relatives

I have been to a strip club on both Good Friday and Christmas.

Pretty sure I'm going to hell.

I normally go see a movie christmas day night with my cousin and girlfriends etc.

Granted they are open. If they weren't, I would 100% understand and just have some more brandy egg nog.

I would probably not be to happy if I worked at walmart or the movie theater and had to go in. It isn't like they are saving lives or protecting the streets.

I'm going to a restaurant for Thanksgiving.

I usually end up in a bar on Christmas day to get away from family. Nothing wrong with it to me.

I worked at a bar that was open on Thanksgiving night. The owner usually worked it himself, and whichever bouncer volunteered to work got paid really well. It was always busy on Thanksgiving night.

Where I use to work we had a tradition of going to the strip club on christmas eve. I have gone to a bar on thanksgiving, but not too many of them are open around me on that day, but i have no issue with it.

The place i go I is always an all volunteer staff. Customers always seem a little more generous on holidays.

I'm in Miami with a lot of tourists. The GF and I are heading out to Smith & Wollenskys down on South Beach. Here, restuarants need to be open to capatilize on those tourists. I guess the South American tourists will be busy shopping as well, but I don't know if they'll be shopping at 12am, or 6am.

People visiting 'need' to eat on TG, but they don't necessarily 'need' to get that new Black Ops XXIV game on TG.

My family is this year because my dad just had surgery and isn't going to be in the mood to deal with relatives, in fact he usually avoids them when he hasn't had surgery

I'm usually to drunk to make it to the bar on Thanksgiving, although I did get a ride to a bar one Thanksgiving when I had tickets to the Bronco game.

Back in my bachelor days a few buddies and I would go out to a restaurant for dinner then a dive bar for a shot of Wild Turkey.

I intend to get a ride to the bar Thursday evening....get snot slingin' drunk on Ugly Pug and watch football.....with a belly full of smoked toikey breast.

I ain't got no kin within 1000 miles, so it's just me.

As a divorced empty-nester who will be having Thanksgiving dinner at my house with just my 78-year-old mom, hell yes I'm going out to a bar later.

Back in 2004 I had Thanksgiving dinner at the Cracker Barrel. It was actually really good.

I was in the Army and since I was the new guy I got stuck on duty the day before Thanksgiving.. so my parents came to see me and we went to eat there since it was next door to their hotel.

I think Christmas 2010 was the year I went to a bar that night. Did the family thing, then drove to hang out with this Japanese girl I was casually dating who was spending the holiday alone. Went out for dinner and drinks.

Used to go to the bar on Thanksgiving night, It was the only night of the year all of my friends from high school could all get together at the same time

We don't celebrate thanksgiving. So we go to a Chinese buffet.

I'm in Norfolk this time. I'm away from home, but not on a ship. I will be on a ship for Christmas and new year.

Last year I was at a bar watching Football on Christmas day.

I went out with my dad once, a few years ago. I also bought a frozen pizza at walmart on thanksgiving, and the look the clerk gave me was a "you poor soul" look.

I will be joining the ranks this year. Damn job has me out of town over the holiday.
