Bars prepare for 'Thanksgiving Eve'

The night before Thanksgiving generally means big business for local hot spots. Many bars have already planned special promotions to attract crowds.

Here's a sampling:

Downtown bars will host a Thanksgiving Eve block party in which one cover charge (usually $7-$10) gives you access to the majority of Broadway hot spots.

Columbus hot spot H2O, 6499 Veterans Parkway, will host a mechanical bull-riding contest designed to find the Sexiest Buck-N-Babe and Best Buck-N-Bronc.

SoHo Bar & Grill, 5751 Milgen Road, will celebrate with a performance by the Atlanta-based rockers from Holdcell.
