Good Day Chow Hounds,
Years ago when I was younger, the holidays were truly meant for families. Everyone came together at home and cooked. There was so much food and all you could do was eat, stumble to a chair and take a nap. After waking from a good food slumber you got up and went back to eating some more. It was an all day family chow down fest.
Sometimes we work too much, sometimes flights get missed and sometimes…just sometimes we don’t wanna do anything but relax on the holidays. Whatever it is, times have changed and so have our values. Today we have a lot of places open for you to dine during Thanksgiving. You can take your family, friends, or just eat a great Thanksgiving meal all by yourself. You can also hit the town with the family after a great Thanksgiving meal. Drink With Trey always has the 411 for drinking, partying, and all your cocktail needs.
Trey’s Chow Down has listed the restaurants below in hopes you will enjoy a happy, loving and delicious Thanksgiving!

From the gas pump faucets, tire sinks, whiskey bottle light fixtures, and creative decorations to its incredible outdoor area that comes complete with a swimming pool. That’s correct, a swimming pool with underwater seats for pool drinking! Fantastic outdoor setting with semi-private tables and a massive wooden deck. Whiskey has plenty of bar space to quickly grab cocktails while still leaving lots of space open for socializing. Bring your suit, your fun times, and head to Whiskey Garden to throw down.

The park is outdoors with a small dimly lit indoor area that is ideal for relaxing. Beautiful old trees adorn the entire Lola’s Trailer Park. The outdoor stage is visible from anywhere, and the outdoor bar puts out nothing but good vibes.

Complete with BBQ, food truck parking, and outdoor games- I love Lola’s, and all the awesome bands that play here year round.
