The Holidays are great because we get that rare chance to see family and friends that we normally don’t see during the year. But, let’s face it, there’s only so much time we can spend with our family, during the holidays, before we need to decompress a bit. So, for those of you looking for a little getaway while your family is still at your house, here’s a list of bars in Abilene you may want to visit for a cold one or two. Heck, you’ll probably see some old classmates you haven’t seen in years.
