Everyone knows about Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year which falls the day after Thanksgiving. However, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving also has a name. Black Wednesday is considered one of the busiest nights of the year for bars and clubs and often brings in more business than even New Year’s Eve. This is the day that students return home from college and families get one fun break before the family traditions of the holidays. Here is a look at the best bars to celebrate Black Wednesday in the DFW area.
