8 reasons why Thursday is definitely the best night for pints

Embrace the Friday hangover.


It’s Thurday night and there is no question that it’s the finest evening for a few drinks. Why? Well:

1. You only have one day left of poxy work

It’s a simple but effective thing to keep in mind – and your chief tool in convincing someone to come alone “for one.”

2. When you go out on a Thursday night, you are essentially starting your weekend early

3. Which makes it a de facto bonus weekend night

Make every weekend into a three dayer with this simple trick.

4. People don’t really have proper excuses to avoid it either

On weekends it’s well understood that people have lives and aren’t likely to join you for a few pints.

But if it’s just a few straight out of the office? They’ll be there.

5. Which means the crowd is solid and probably up for some shenanigans

Thursday Night Pints:

Tiredness from the working week + a few pints = zero f**ks given.

6. The pubs are slightly less packed out of it on a Thursday night

Friday and Saturdays be all:


7. Whilst still maintaining a serious buzz

Why? Because everyone knows it’s Thursdaaaay night. This isn’t the dark days of Monday and Tuesday. There is life in the pub.

8. And finally, there is NEVER a better time to have a hangover than on a Friday

You still have the whole, wonderful weekend stretching out in front of you, AND you had serious craic last night.

Compare it to a hangover on a Monday and we’re dealing with two completely different beasts. Embrace the Friday hangover and with it, Thursday pints.
