America’s Dive Bars Are Among Those Hit Hardest by Alex Trebek’s Death

The dive tradition of watching ‘Jeopardy!’ over beers and shots will end with Trebek’s final episode on December 25

As 7 p.m. hit on Monday, the bartender at Do or Dive in Brooklyn killed the music and two ancient black-and-white TVs roared to life, as they do every night at 7. On the screens, Alex Trebek took the Jeopardy! stage from his pre-taped purgatory. “I can’t believe how quickly the year is moving along,” he told the audience.

Thanksgiving, the traditional start of the holiday season, is getting a COVID-19 makeover. With the Centers for Disease Control advising against holiday travel, many individuals across the United States are finally surrendering to the grim reality of the pandemic by making last-minute calls canceling family dinner plans. In fact, only 29 percent of consumers are expected to host or attend a meal with extended family who does not live with them in 2020, down almost 20 percent from the 2019 holiday, according to market research firm IRI.
