Drink of the Week

Ahhh, Thanksgiving: the official start to the glorious holiday season, when friends and family are certain to drive you crazy -- or at least drive you to drink. And there's no better place to do that than Charlie Brown's Bar and Grill, a wonderfully dilapidated Denver drinking institution and a safe haven for wayward souls. As a special season's greeting, order a Wild Turkey and Coke ($4): Bourbon on the rocks always improves your outlook on life, and the friendly staff at Charlie Brown's understands that you're going to need a stiff one.

Open from 7 a.m. until 2 a.m., 365 days a year, Charlie Brown's does Thanksgiving right, too. You can enjoy a delicious dinner featuring turkey, prime rib, pumpkin pie and all the fixings for a bargain price of $8.95, and consume it in the company of your new, easygoing friends, without a screaming child or bickering in-law in sight. With smooth music coming from the mirrored piano, football on TV and good conversation all around, a day spent here is definitely something to be thankful for. So save your sanity and make Charlie Brown's your home away from home this holiday season.
