It is that time of year again. Everyone is busy making their holiday plans. Some will be traveling out of town to visit friends and relatives, while others will be staying right here in the Las Vegas area. For those staying in the area, now is a good time to start making your plans for Black Wednesday. What is Black Wednesday? According to Wikipedia, this is “The night before Thanksgiving – sometimes called Thanksgiving Eve, or better yet, Black Wednesday in the industry – is one of the busiest bar nights of the year.” This day rivals, and sometimes exceeds bar attendance on New Year’s Eve.
