Thanksgiving is all about family, which is why it's both the best and worst holiday we have. It's so very important to spend time with your family, really. But there's spending time with your family, and then there's being forced to spend time with your family. One is good, and one is dangerous. One will enrich your life for the better, and the other will send Uncle Burt to the hospital with a fork in his deltoid.
So after the plates are cleared and the pie digested, it's important to get a little time to yourself. Or at least a little time surrounded by strangers who would also like some type of liquid solution to help them forget about the fact that Grandma just admitted to doing porn in the '50s before you were even passed the sweet potatoes.
We understand. That's why we've compiled a list of all the bars and clubs in Miami that will open their doors on Thanksgiving Day. Dance off those calories.
