The Buffet Crock Pot & Bar: Looking to get an early start to your Thanksgiving day drinking marathon? The legendary bar that's located in the Iron Horse district will be open as early as 6 a.m. Don't like turkey? You should try a delicious hot dog that's been boiled (in beer) all day in a "formerly-almost-state-of-the-art crock pot." There will be a Thanksgiving potluck at 6 p.m. Bring your left overs and good times.

The Bambi Bar: Looking for an intimate and warm place to day drink in Midtown on Thanksgiving? "Your Neighborhood Bar" opens as early as 6 a.m. Do you like to waste your money on claw machines? The Bambi has a crane game full of X-rated videos and kinky toys instead of cheap plush dolls. There will be a full Thanksgiving dinner for you and fellow solitary loved ones.

Mr. Head's Gallery and Bar: Do you like  booze, art and turkey balls? The bar's drink special is $4 shots of a Wild Turkey and Fire Ball whiskey mixed called "Turkey Balls."  To quote the legendary Stan Lee, " 'Nuff said!" Doors open at 8 p.m.

The Shelter Cocktail Lounge: Nothing says Thanksgiving like the award winning Martinis and pictures of JFK. Happy hour and doors open at 6 p.m. Drink specials include $1.50 Pabst Blue Ribbon and $5 Stoli martinis. It's the only place to drink and to remember those found memories from the 60s.

Wooden Nickel Tavern: The Wooden Nickel Tavern is located in the heart of the Barrio Centro. I know what you're asking yourself, "Hey Henry. Is that the joint next to the shady drive-thru liquor store?" Correct! Did I mention there will be karaoke? Who's down to sing some Mariah Carey and Prince tunes? I'm talking to you DJ PJ.
