Known as the biggest bar night of the year, Thanksgiving Eve is an overlooked opportunity to catch some music while also enjoying an assortment of liquid courage before facing the dreaded onslaught of family small talk on Thanksgiving day. Hell, you can even get a free ride home from the party of your choice so you have no excuse not to partake in at least one of these pre-turkey feast bangers.
