I don’t know about you, but I’m always hungrier the day after a hearty night of boozin’. Perhaps this is why November 23 is touted as the “biggest drinking night of the year” – which doesn’t make much sense to me. I’d never heard of this notion until I moved to Pittsburgh, but hey, I’ll take it. While I’ll be en route to enemy territory to spend my Thanksgiving, I won’t leave you high and dry. Here are some options for your Pre-Turkey Day festivities. And as always, be safe, don’t drink too much and save room for dinner!
Thanksgiving Eve Party at Cattivo
This is by no means all-encompassing, as every bar under the sun usually has some type of Pre-Thanksgiving festivities. These are just some options to make your choices easier. If I were going out, here’s what I would recommend hitting up:
Matt Darey at Static - I hear he’s good. We like Static. You can dance there.
Riches to Rags Holiday Soiree featuring Sweet Earth at The Rex - Anything with the word “soiree” in it is worth checking out. Plus, we like the Rex. Good peeps. Good sound.
6th Annual Retro Thanksgiving Eve at Z:Lounge - We’re a fan of tradition, so we’d expect a lot from an event that’s in its 6th year. We also heart Z:Lounge. Congrats to Ova on his new baby!
Thanksgiving Feast of Fists at Stage AE - MMA! Get that testosterone flowin’ before you chow down on some grub. There aren’t too many opportunities to see MMA events in Pittsburgh, so take advantage!
FUZZ! Featuring DJ G at BBT - The guys over at FUZZ are especially excited to bring seasoned dubstep producer DJ G to Pittsburgh for a Thanksgiving Eve celebration that’s sure to be one for the books!
Stay tuned for a special Turkey Day edition of NakNoise. You’ll need some jams to tune out the fam once they start getting on your nerves!
