I’m from Brazil, and here, in almost every city, Thursdays are days which adults (> 25 y/o) go out and have some fun, staying up until late even if they got to go to work the next Friday morning. Bars and night clubs run full.
Usually, Fridays are expected to be the day for hanging out, but that is only truth for teenagers and young adults (< 25 y/o ) around here. Adults here tend to use their Friday to visit family, close friends AND have business dinners instead of going to the night club.
This perspective is true around <1M citizens cities. Big cities like Curitiba, São Paulo, Rio, Salvador, Recife, etc party all day.
This being true, I myself (22 y/o) do not schedule any business dinners with other older coworkers on Thursdays because of that. And so often I have to plan them on Fridays, which is normal for them but not for me, since all my friends are inviting me to hang out and go to a bar, etc.
This is not the main point though, my question is:
- Does this happen often in other countries? Because I have two business travels scheduled to Spain and Germany May/2021 and I’m in charge of the schedule.
