Places To Go Thanksgiving Night

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

In any year, Thanksgiving with the family can be anxiety inducing, but considering most of us are still reeling from the election, sitting across the table from your racist,Trump-voting uncle is seeming particularly daunting. A lot of families also have this weird tradition of eating Thanksgiving dinner at an absurdly early hour so most of us are freed from the table by 7 or 8 and a desperation to immerse ourselves back in a bubble of liberalism, friends and booze will kick in.  I’ll probably end up at the Mint singing karaoke with my friends but here are a few more options to get your groove back on Thanksgiving night
