Bars seen busiest night

Last years COVID restrictions closed bars for the holiday but this year they expect crowds to be larger than previous years

“Feeling like normal” is how manager of the Fenton Pub, Lindsey Grover describes one of the busiest nights for bars referred to as “Drinksgiving.”

“I never know what to expect,” Grover said. “You have the college kids, the older crowd, we’re hoping for that great group tonight.”

For Grover’s daughter, Hannah, her nerves are a little higher but says the excitement to see locals and out of towners is drowning it out

“I’m kind of nervous for tonight because you never know what the vibe is going to be,” Hannah said. “I miss that feeling of having everyone together so it’s pretty exciting.”

On top of helping locals wine down and celebrate the holiday, the pub is also celebrating 3 years in business--something Grover says can’t help without support of the pub customers

“We love seeing new faces, old faces and with fenton, it's a small town and everyone knows everyone it's a great place to be,” Grover explained.”

Whether you are a regular or home for the holiday local bars remind customers to keep a few things in mind when out on the town.

“Have fun of course but drink responsibly,” Grover said.
