Nine Thanksgiving Weekend Parties in Metro Phoenix
According to our estimates, the Thanksgiving weekend lasts approximately 112 hours, starting at the exact moment you leave work on Wednesday afternoon until the dreaded moment you report back to the salt mines the following Monday.
Subtract the time it takes for the annual T-Day meal itself (as well as the requisite food coma) and you've still got plenty of time left to kill over the four-day holiday. Instead of wasting away the hours watching football, the Macy's parade, or engaging in the annual fracas known as Black Friday, consider shaking a tailfeather at one of the Thanksgiving weekend parties being put on at many of the Valley's bars and dance clubs, including the nine celebrations we've found.
