Where to Shake Your Tailfeathers Thanksgiving Eve

Did you know Thanksgiving Eve is one of the most popular nights of the year for the bar scene? It makes sense, since everyone is off work and have got nothing to do but eat, watch a parade from their couch and maybe participate in a game of Turkey Day football.

The only question is which bars are going to have the best party this year? Here are three of the best places in Scottsdale to get down before Thanksgiving.

Talk Turkey to Me

The Crudo crew is offering a night of bird-related food and spirits. Beverages will be whipped up by Micah Olson and his guest bartenders, Jason Asher and Clint Spotleson, and will include Wild Turkey Whiskey, Black Grouse Scotch, Aylesbury Duck Vodka and more. The bird talk doesn’t end there. Chef Cullen Campbell will whip up dishes like Pastrami-style chicken wings with Mustard Vin.

Crudo is located at 3603 E. Indian School Rd. Phoenix, 85018. 602-358-8666. Open 9 p.m. to close.

Twerky” Day

Take note from Miley Cyrus and “twerk” your way to any of the three Sandbar locations for some pre-Thanksgiving celebrating. Sandbar is offering some sweet deals on holiday drinks and food, including $4 Wild Turkey 101’s and $5 cranberry margaritas. Don’t forget to wash down the turkey tacos with $4 pumpkin beer.

Sandbar has three valley locations:  

Sandbar Peoria                     Sandbar Chandler                  Sandbar Desert Ridge

Party like a Pilgrim

If you’re one of the lucky people who gets to leave the office a little early today, then head over to Hi-Fi Kitchen & Cocktails for its Harvest Hoedown block party that starts at 2 p.m. and doesn’t end until 2 a.m. Ole Smokey Moonshine is sponsoring this event, which will feature moonshine cocktails, happy hour and live music all day and night. Shake a tail feather on the two-story dance floor that will also extend into the street and turn the block into one big pre-Thanksgiving party. You can’t go wrong with $4 Old Smokey cocktails and shots.

Hi Fi Kitchen and Cocktails is located at 4420 N. Saddlebag Trail #110. 480.970.5000.
