Is this a foreign concept to everyone outside of Fremont, Ohio?
Every Wednesday before Thanksgiving, it is tradition to go to the bar–the Depot to be more specific. And we call it Drunksgiving.
Everyone is home, you know? Everyone you went to high school and junior high and elementary school with. They’re all home. And they’re all at the Depot, and they’re all drunk and in good spirits. It’s a great time. When you don’t live in your hometown anymore, it’s nice to be able to go to one place–one crowded, sweaty, smokey, wonderful place–and see the people you haven’t seen all year.
It’s nice to catch up. But you always run the risk of seeing someone you really didn’t want to see.
Let’s just hope that happens AFTER you’ve had a few.
Happy Drunksgiving, everyone!
