Let us give thanks for bars open Thursday, including the Fainting Goat

The Fainting Goat -- the go-to holiday escape for working Westworders -- realized there was a need for official Thanksgiving hours early today, when they got a call from a group that wanted to make a reservation for ten o'clock on Thanksgiving night.

We're sure that the Goat, which now plans to open at 5 p.m. on Thursday, November 22, isn't the only tavern where people can give thanks this Thanksgiving. See also: - Get high on the Fainting Goat's rooftop patio - Here's a B-cycle crawl for day drinking

But it's the spot closest to our office, and although the Goat won't be offering any deals on Wild Turkey -- because it doesn't stock Wild Turkey -- all of the usual specials will be in play, including the normal Thursday night ladies' night deal. (A moment, please, to give thanks that Steve Horner no longer lives in Denver.)

Do you know of other watering holes that will be open on Thursday? If so, please post the information in the comments selection below, and we'll post an updated guide to your Thanksgiving drinking options tomorrow.
