Scottsdale club-goers celebrate Thanksgiving Eve in 2012.
Depending on the state of your family's interpersonal relations and the amount of emotional baggage they have stowed away, Thanksgiving will either be a joyous or hellish experience.

If it's the former, you might be in search of a place to knock back a few with some of your relations from out of town. But if it happens to be more of the latter, a few places to escape to after getting your fill of all the psychodrama are needed. Either way, we've got you covered.

Both the night before T-Day and the evening hours of the holiday itself will feature a surfeit of more than a dozen celebrations at metro Phoenix after-dark establishments. Festivities will offer the opportunity to pre-game Thanksgiving on Wednesday, November 27, or have a nightcap following the big meal. That includes chances to down a few shots of Wild Turkey (natch) or shake a tailfeather to EDM at spots around Tempe, Scottsdale, and Phoenix.

Is Hi-Fi Kitchen & Cocktail still denying people of racial color or appearance entry into their establishment?

I'm guessing they'll lift their ban for the holidays to welcome all that money...

So i'm guessing the title must be wrong because all these events are on the 27th and 28th not exactly the weekend...
