Thanksgiving is just a week away; are you ready? Friends and family will be inhabiting your home to crash on your couch and eat your turkey; are you ready for that? Wednesday night ,before the holidays gets into full swing, you should explore the BARmuda Triangle!

Everyone and their brother is out on the town the night before Thanksgiving, catching up with old friends and winding down before the long weekend. Here are a few stops on the BARmuda Triangle (downtown Sault Ste. Marie bars) that we’ve highlighted for you.

Feast on fajitas and margaritas to kick the night off right at The Palace Restaurant and Saloon. With a wide range of Mexican and American food, The Palace is sure to please your palette, but the real fun is the 100 different margaritas! With house specials and an array of other liquors, you could stay here all night with unlimited drink possibilities.

The best part of the BARmuda Triangle is that all of the bars are within a reasonable walking distance of each other. Make your way out The Palace’s front door, across the street, and you’ll find yourself at the Soo Brewing Company. Enjoy handcrafted beer brewed onsite in a relaxed atmosphere. With long tables, overstuffed couches, and board games you might just discover your new favorite hangout.

When you’re ready to move on the next stop is only right next door at Moloney’s Alley Irish Pub. With 20 (mostly) Michigan made beers and a full bar, the lively attitude of Moloney’s will get your evening going. Rack up a game of pool or order from their full menu, and you’re sure to find something to occupy a few hours of your night. Ask about the “Mighty Quinn” shot ski to really get a jump on the evening.

Looking for a little more laid back drinking establishment to “wine down” your Wednesday? Wander up Portage Avenue to 1668 Winery & Lockside Brewery for a selection of house crafted wines and beers. With a light menu and a pleasant aroma, 1668 is a fantastic location to gather for a conversation with friends over gourmet pizza.

I’m not saying friends and family drive us to drink, I’m saying you should take a break and get out for the night before the real chaos of the holiday season starts. Take one of the friends or family members as your designated driver or call a cab if you celebrate a little too much.  No matter what, have fun and be safe.
