Metro Phoenix bars, eateries ready for pre-holiday rush

PHOENIX — Thanksgiving is typically one of the busiest nights of the year for Valley bars and restaurants. In fact many say it is the biggest bar night of the year.

Impressive when stacked against New Year’s Eve and St. Patrick’s Day.

Jaret Johnson at Milagro Grill near 40th Street and Indian School Road is ready for the rush.

“Full staff. Ready to go and entertain everybody who comes in,” Johnson said.

With a big day ahead in the kitchen, few people want to cook Wednesday night or to deal with dishes when a mountain will be piled up soon enough.

“It’s a great evening to let us do the work. Come on out enjoy the beautiful evening on the patio,” Johnson said.

Should be a giant tip night for servers across the Valley, too.
