Ten Bars and Clubs Open on Thanksgiving in Broward and Palm Beach Counties

The best Thanksgiving memories are the ones in which you're surrounded by family. But what's glittering for your memory bank can be hell on your IRL stress levels.

Way down the line, you can accentuate the positive, but at 6:52 p.m. Thursday, you'll have to use all your will power not to scream at Aunt Sylvia when she asks you for the seventeen thousandth time when you're going to settle down.

To assist with your mental health and desire to booze, we here at New Times decided to locate ten bars and clubs whose doors will be open for you to kick back and cut loose this Thursday.

Original Fat Cat's

320 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale. Visit facebook.com/originalfatcats.

The downtown Fort Lauderdale staple will be opening up shop at 10 p.m. An hour later, you will be serenaded by Jeff Durham, whose music encompasses "old-school rock, new-school rock, and a little bit of country." Perfect for digesting that bird and potatoes.

Red's Bar and Package

2610 N. Dixie Highway, Wilton Manors. Call 954-564-0233.

Not only will Red's have its regular hours on Thanksgiving, open from 7 a.m. on, starting at 2 p.m. until it runs out, it will have a special $5-a-plate Thanksgiving dinner that includes turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and all the fixings.

Respectable Street

518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Visit sub-culture.org.

If you can still fit into your flannels or Cross Colours after Thanksgiving dinner, head over to Respectable Street, which will be hosting Yo! Flaunt Jams: A '90s Thanksgiving, during which you can dance to Coolio and Right Said Fred while pounding $2 PBRs and $3 shots.
