    BENSALEM, Pa. (CBS) — Thanksgiving Eve is one of the biggest party nights of the year, and it’s also one of the most dangerous. Law enforcement agencies are on the lookout for drivers under the influence.

    WALTHAM (CBS) – Bars and restaurants around Massachusetts are going to be a lot quieter on this Thanksgiving Eve. “It’s like a high school reunion except everyone from grades below and above you are here. You get to see people you haven’t seen in a long time,” said Nick Carnes. The state’s mandatory 9:30 cut off for restaurants and the Covid-19 capacity limits will mean fewer crowds than in years past. “It’s just concerning having to close so early when a night like this is a moneymaker right through last call,” said Joey Lacava of Shoppers Cafe. Shoppers Cafe has locations in Waltham and Manchester, New Hampshire. It is typically their biggest night of the year. To help bring in some extra money it is selling complete Thanksgiving meal packages. This is the first time they have ever had to do anything like this on Thanksgiving Eve. “It’s definitely an avenue to get our name out there and to get our food out there to generate business,” said Lacava. At Fit-Z’s in Watertown, they’re also preparing to...
    MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (CBS) — Most people traveling today are driving, according to AAA. Eyewitness News was at the James Cooper rest stop in Mount Laurel on the northbound part of the New Jersey Turnpike. There was a good amount of cars in the parking lot, but it wasn’t as packed as it normally would be the day before Thanksgiving. Drivers say the turnpike has also been clear. “So far the roads are pretty clear,” one driver said. “Making some good time,” said another. Thanks in part to many people listening to CDC warnings urging people to stay home, there hasn’t been much traffic trouble for those driving on the turnpike to see loved ones for Thanksgiving. “So far so good, it was smooth sailing,” said Diane Gonzalez. Gonzalez, of North Carolina, grabbed some food at the rest stop in Mount Laurel. She says she’s only seeing a handful of her family when she arrives in upstate New York. “Just immediate family, my parents and my siblings and that’s it,” she said.

    MEDIA, Pa. (CBS) — Pennsylvanians expecting to enjoy a Thanksgiving week tradition tomorrow night may be in for a shock. Gov. Tom Wolf has ordered bars and restaurants to stop serving alcohol for one night, but the change is causing confusion. A lot of restaurants and bar owners believe the governor is crashing a Thanksgiving Eve tradition. They’re not party bars but fine-dining establishments who have been unfairly lumped in. There’s alcohol anger and booze confusion in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board says stores have been crushed with people incorrectly believing the governor ordered them to stop alcohol sales at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Again, that’s not true. “We’ve been hearing that our stores are very, very busy,” said Shawn Kelly with the PLCB. Meanwhile, the governor’s order prohibiting alcohol sales for Thanksgiving Eve has inspired some Media-area restaurants to think outside the box. At La Padella, they’ll pivot to a BYOB. “We’ve gotten nothing but great feedback. People are just happy to see us continuing and to still be here,” Nick Amoroso said. Brick and Brew, known for its...
    Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat and fascist, has just will-nilly, with no authority from the spineless eunuchs in the Pennsylvania legislature (that should be impeaching him), outlawed the sale of alcohol starting at 5 p.m. Wednesday night (Thanksgiving Eve) and ending at 8 a.m. Thursday morning (Thanksgiving Day). But… He’s only outlawing the sale of alcohol in bars and restaurants. You can still buy all the booze you want at the store. Wait till you hear his rationale… “The biggest day for drinking is the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I don’t like addressing that anymore than anyone else does, but it’s a fact,” Wolf said. “When people get together in that situation it leads to an increase in the exchange of the fluids that leads to increased infection.” What!? This isn’t going to decrease alcohol consumption. Like Prohibition did 90 years ago, it’s only going to increase drinking because now drinking comes with a taste of the forbidden. Anyone who wants to drink on Thanksgiving Eve is going to drink and “exchange fluids” at home, while the bars and...

    Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf ordered restaurants and bars to halt the sale of alcohol on the evening before Thanksgiving to try and mitigate possible upticks in coronavirus cases. According to KDKA of Pittsburgh, Wolf cited the Thanksgiving Eve as the "biggest day for drinking," and said the one-night ban is necessary despite the hard economic hit the service industry has taken from the pandemic. "The thing that we can’t do is ignore reality and say ‘yeah you folks, for no fault of your own, have been hit hardest by this virus.’ But the virus is what’s doing this. It’s not me. It’s not the administration. It’s not the government," Wolf, a Democrat, said. The ban will begin on 5 p.m. on Nov. 25, according to the governor's office. The move was met with criticism from those working in the service industry, who said the night before Thanksgiving is one of their biggest nights for sales. Teddy Sourias, who owns five bars and restaurants in Philadelphia, told the Philadelphia Inquirer that Wolf's order was "yet another blow to our...
    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Last call for Pennsylvania bars will be at 5 p.m. on Wednesday to cut COVID-19 transmission during what is normally a night of heavy public drinking, Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf announced Monday. Wolf also imposed new crowd size limits of 500 people indoors and 2,500 outdoors and vowed there will be heightened enforcement of mask wearing requirements and other infection control tools. He said busy bars can lead to “an increase in the exchange of the fluids that leads to increased infection.” The order will end 8 a.m. on Thursday, Thanksgiving. “We've got to recognize that as tough as that is, it's even tougher when people die,” Wolf said. The Wolf administration says infections and deaths from COVID-19 have risen sharply in recent days, raising concerns the infection could spread during holiday gatherings and could challenge the health care system's capacity to adequately treat the sick. The governor also said there will be limits on civil liability for businesses that enforce the statewide mandate that people wear masks in public spaces. The state's Health Secretary, Dr....
