The taps will be flowing at the Fainting Goat on Thanksgiving.
There's no shame in giving thanks at the bar as opposed to the table, or in taking a break from the family to catch a quick buzz -- which is why many local watering holes will be open on Thanksgiving. Here's a rundown of some of the best spots in town to booze it up on Turkey Day. And if you know of any others, feel free to share them in the comments section below.

Home. The drinks are cheaper, the atmosphere is better, and there's no need for a cab.
