The night before Thanksgiving is known as the biggest bar night of the year, because nothing says “Happy Thanksgiving” quite like getting blackout drunk the night before you give thanks, right?

If your high school buddies are coming back into town and you’re looking for somewhere fun and happenin’ to reunite, consider one of the following:

On the Dunes

Located in Commerce, the bar will celebrate Thanksgiving Eve with free cover before 10 p.m., drink specials and a live set by DJ Lanka from 9 p.m. to close. This party is a can’t-miss for sports fans, as Red Wings tickets will be raffled off throughout the night.


Ferndale’s favorite sushi bar and lounge will throw a “sophisticated” bar night out party, starting with happy hour from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner service from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Very happy hour goes from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m., and DJ Tom T will spin from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.

From backyard projects to weekend getaways, the Chevy Blazer offers unmatched cargo space and convenience for all your adventures.

Reservations are suggested, but not required.


Starting at 8 p.m., Brick’s of Northville will put on its biggest party of the year, hosted by Joey Radio. DJ DANO will provide the live music, and complimentary party buses will be available for safe rides home.

Mon Jin Lau

Located in Troy, Mon Jin Lau is hosting another classy alternative to the typical 21 and up “bar night out” event. A special edition of the restaurant’s usual Shanghai Wednesdays, the evening will feature DJ Vin Amori and an acoustic performance by Kenny Spear.

Mention the evening’s 15 percent off dinner special to your server before ordering to receive a discount on your meal.

Rosie O’Grady’s

The Irish pub’s Chesterfield location is hosting a party that spans two floors with two full bars. DJs Don Mecca and Gus Quest Jibraail will kick things off at 9:30 p.m., and you won’t want to miss out on drink specials like $2 shots and $1 Jell-O shots. There will also be a special late night food menu.

No matter where you find yourself this Thanksgiving Eve, have a great time, and most of all, be safe. Don’t leave the house without a planned safe ride home!
