In DC for Thanksgiving?

Concerned everyone’s fled the city for the holiday? Whether you’re trekking in to see loved ones around the Beltway or completely friendless and sticking around the Capitol, there’s lots going on in DC during the Turkey Day weekend.

Starting on Wednesday, they will be a huge Thanksgiving Eve party at Tattoo Bar on K Street. It’s sure to be the hottest party since the pilgrims met the Indians. Vodka-copias and colonial dressing strongly encouraged.

After you eat your way into bigger pants, hit up Black Friday sales for more stuffing-friendly clothing for overeating dressing in style. Here’s a great list of places having BF sales around the area.

Then squeeze in some culture at the Ayr Hill Gallery in Vienna for an art opening for Ken Frye. You’ve got yourself a nice little Thanksgiving game plan, and it didn’t cost you a dime! (Minus the shopping splurges and incidental costs).
