Not everyone wants to sit at home on Thanksgiving day and there’s not much to do, or so we thought until we asked our Facebook followers if they knew if bars would be open for business as usual.  Boy, were we in for a surprise with the list we received with just one post!  So, we thought we would share this informal list of just a few area bars that will be open on Thanksgiving Day, November 23rd, 2017 divided by county.  Special thanks to friends of The Weekend Concierge on Facebook for the following list with added notes of interest on each line.
