Thanksgiving is almost here, and unless you live in a Publix commercial or a Hallmark movie, things don't always go so well when the whole family gathers under one roof.

The turkey is dry, your abuela is bored, and your uncle is drunk. Clich├ęs? Of course, but they happen.

When all else fails, call an Uber and stop by one of these Miami bars for a little Turkey Day pick-me-up.
