Have you ever asked yourself “I wonder what day is the MOST popular night to go out for a drink?”  or “Where does Cinco de Mayo rank among the most popular drinking nights?”  I have put together an unscientific survey and here are the results:

1. St. Patricks Day

2. Cinco de Mayo

3. Halloween

4. Night before Thanksgiving

5. New Year’s Eve

New Years Eve

Some things to think about: A lot depends on what night of the week each of these days falls on.  For example, if the day falls on a Monday, you can expect a lot less people to go out for a drink.  On the other hand, it if falls on a Friday or Saturday night, beware of large crowds and expect some very BIG parties.  This is why Cinco de Mayo, or the 5th of May is a big one this year.

On the other hand, weather can play a big factor in the success of the party.  For example, last October, Halloween was a rainy night.  Even if it falls on a weekend, rain can definitely ruin your party, especially if it’s outdoors!

Lastly, a big warning: Just because the beer is cheap, it doesn’t mean that you need to get drunk!  I’m not sure why, but it seems that the greatest number of people who don’t drink much during the rest of the year decide that they are going to start on New Year’s Eve.  That’s not the kind of New Year’s resolution most people make on January 1st but if you aren’t the type who drinks much the rest of the year, don’t start on December 31st!

I had fun putting together this little blog and hope you enjoyed reading it.  You can leave comments below.  Have a great weekend!
