    Don't worry, you get to sleep in tomorrow.

    Before turkey, family and football, give thanks to hot house beats, even hotter clubbers and copious amounts of cocktails on Thanksgiving Eve. Here is our roundup of Black Wednesday parties taking place around town. 

    Spybar is hosting British house music producer and DJ Mark Knight from 10PM to 4AM (better call Mom now and tell her you're gonna be late for T-Day dinner). Be a good American and fill him in on all of our Black Wednesday traditions.

    Metromix is embarking on a pub crawl pilgrimmage to honor those who drank before us. Board the trolleys at Lottie's Pub to visit three nightlife destinations around town that will be offering drink specials for the group. The festivities wrap up back at Lottie's with late-night barbecued turkey legs.

    If you like your turkey of the alcoholic variety, head to O'Donovan's for $2 shots of Wild Turkey and and $3 cocktails, plus $1 Wild Turkey "balls" (maraschino cherries marinated in bourbon). Yum.

    Old Town pub Sully's House is fixated on the "black" in Black Wednesday. Dark beers (like Guinness and various stouts) plus drinks made with Johnny Walker Black, Effen Black Cherry vodka and Jack Daniels (don't ask us) are $1. Movies like "Men in Black" and "Black Dahlia" will be on mute. So clever!

    Perhaps you have family in town you have to entertain. Class it up at Matisse, where $5 pumpkin martinis will be on offer.

    Uptown's F. Mahony's is opening up early to celebrate Black Wednesday. Indulge in $4 Jameson shots, $5 Bacardi cocktails, $5 Beefeater martinis, $3 cranberry shooters and $5 pizzas. After all, it's officially the holidays!
