Thursday, November 25th
5pm-The Lodge Tavern
7pm-River Shannon

What’s better than the holidays? Avoiding it with your family (let’s be honest). Add free food, some drinks, and the absence of Uncle Morty’s toupee and you’ve got this tasty, coma-inducing event from The Lodge Tavern and River Shannon. The purchase of one beverage gets you a complimentary turkey dinner with all the trimmings. No thawing, gutting, stuffing, or sawing required. Whether you can’t or just don’t want to spend Turkey day at Aunt Mildred’s, take the pressure off yourself and put the fire department at ease by joining the Rush and Division gang for some free Thanksgiving fare. (Or bring the fam along! Let’s face it, your mom could use the drinks.)

River Shannon will open on Thanksgiving at 7pm and close at 2am, and The Lodge Tavern will open at 5pm and close at 4am.
