Bars nationwide will open early Thursday morning for patrons who want to tune into a much-ballyhooed TV event that has Americans buzzing.

“Come on… you know you want to watch the drama unfold this Thursday,” the Facebook organizer wrote on the event’s page. “Grab your friends, grab a drink and let’s COVFEFE!”
