“It’s a school night,” Thursday is the hands down the best night to go out. I admit that any night (other than Monday or Sunday) are nights that Nairobians party hard on but Thursday takes the cake. It’s the post work beer that has been engrained in our mind – its just not a full day without it. But it’s the Thursday Night after work drinks that just last a little longer than most nights. Thursday offers a a little more than most night and usually starts earlier than most party night.
The best way to see how much people value their job is watch how late they take their Thursday night. In fact I am sure there is a direct correlation between the lateness of a Thursday evening and Job Satisfaction. But in reality who actually gets anything done on a Friday – might as well just spend the day in an intoxicated glaze.
Here are 5 reasons why Thursdays are the best:
1. There is always something Special
Most likely there is a special offer in your local. Two for one deals, cocktail special offers, Ladies night, All you can eat, Salsa Music and guest Djs – Need I say more. Electric Avenue is alive and well from the early evening right until early Friday morning. Even places like Cin Cin in the Norfolk have a special cocktail night.
2. Extended Weekend
To all those that work 6 days a week – Thursday night makes your weekend a lot longer giving you more things to get done over the weekend. In other words Party with your friends on Thursday to get it out of your system – leaving Friday, Saturday and Sunday for more relaxing and less hectic things. In fact going out on Thursday Aids in more relaxation time and wasting your entire Sunday nursing your hangover.
3. Less People and No Kids
As I said it’s a school night – while all youngins are still under the watchful eye of their parentals their is less chance for underage flirting. Also less chance that you feel old and out of place in the bar. On Thursday there a lot less people in the clubs. That simply means: Less random fights, less constant shoving, easier access to the bar and less competition. There are also more singles out on a Thursday – which is an obvious advantage. Not to mention there are less mindless aggravated beef heads. In brief it is a more mature crowd…
4. Better Music!
It’s just better – now that we have evolved from “Bend Over Thursday” it has transitioned to a more developed musical atmosphere. There are less Britney Gaga House remixes and more actual music. The lead reason for this – themed nights and Great DJs – simply said Salsa nights and DJ Zelalem. I have to confess I am the Pop Music Antichrist so anything House/Techo/Pop remix I am against. Thursdays are the days when less people say “This is My Jam!”
5. Earlier Nights
Simple laws of partying – You start early you leave early. Unlike Friday or Saturday when your evening starts at 11pm and finishes at 5am!! Thursday starts at 8pm and finishes at 1am. Notice the longer party time period. Secondly less traffic mainly because you are going to the bar next to your office. Thirdly there are less of the Die Hard Party goers forcing you to stay until breakfast!
