It’s Thanksgiving, and that means breaking out your sweatpants, indulging in copious amounts of food, and answering relatives' invasive questions why you are still single and are you ever going to do anything with that degree of yours.

While family tradition and good manners might dictate you have to spend all of Turkey Day with your family to prove how grateful you are for them, nothing says you have to spend the night before with them as well.

In fact, the nouveau tradition is to mentally prepare oneself on Thanksgiving Eve with a few hours of fun. Think of it as an appetizer to the main course or a way to let loose before sitting at a family dinner for five hours.

Copperpoint Brewing Co.
Newly opened Copperpoint Brewing (151 Commerce Road, Boynton Beach) will be celebrating its six-month anniversary party in style. From noon to 5 p.m., guests can enjoy $3 drafts, and from 5 p.m. to close, drafts increase by only $1. There will also be raffle prizes, brewery tours, and food vendors BC Tacos and TC Melts. Visit CopperPointBrewingCompany.com.
