SALT LAKE CITY — A lot of you were drinking on Thanksgiving, and the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control has the data to prove it.

A DABC spokeswoman told FOX 13 that 306,000 bottles of liquor were sold in state liquor stores the day before Thanksgiving.

The day before a holiday typically results in a mad rush to stock up, as state-run liquor stores are closed on holidays.

The DABC made $2.8 million in liquor sales on Nov. 27, up from last year’s sales of $2.7 million.
