Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate family and togetherness... or at least to enjoy some spectacular stuffing and pie. It's also a time to drown family drama and awkward gatherings with a bounty of booze—and if you're anything like us, you get started well before the bird is carved. Thanksgiving Eve is the biggest drinking day of the year for a reason, and we're on board. So designate a driver or set up that Lyft account, gather the coolest of your cousins and take your pick from the following pre-holiday parties.
Seven Grand, along with their gracious sponsor Wild Turkey, are giving you a pretty great excuse to get wasted this Thanksgiving eve. Entry is free, however with each $1 donation they'll pass you a raffle ticket for prizes being given out throughout the night—and all donations will go to the LA Midnight Mission for Thanksgiving Dinner. Each glass of $6 Wild Turkey Spiced Cranberry Punch Cocktail you guzzle will also get you a raffle ticket, for prizes like hats, t-shirts and a few boozy surprises. Prizes will be drawn every hour, and the winning ticket numbers will go up on a chalkboard so that if you miss the draw while you're taking shots/making out with that friend from high school/outside having a smoke, you can still claim your prize.
Celebrate Pre-Thanksgiving at King King this year, where you can dance (almost) enough to justify your Thanksgiving meal. Enjoy sets by Marques Wyatt, Sublevel's Doc Martin, KCRW's Jason Bentley and DJ Big Cee. The event runs from 10pm to 4am, but early arrival is suggested (and early bird tickets are only $10).
The night before Thanksgiving this year, Spaceland presents... well, we're not entirely sure yet. All we know is that it's a super secret party for Los Angeles, at a super secret location with a super secret lineup. Maybe we're just playing into the hype, but it's gotta be good, right? Keep checking back on the Echo website as more info is revealed...
If you're looking to get hammered and sweaty before Thanksgiving this year, head to Supperclub for their pre-holiday bash, boasting DJs Alex, Mehrbod, Deejay Al and DJ Moeen, as well as a bottle service special that we guess is a good deal: 2 bottles of Grey Goose vodka for $600... plus tip and tax. Early Christmas present to yourself?
