You need a beverage. Now. Doesnt matter that you and the fam are in the middle of eating Christmas dinner or that your niece is being all cute because, basically, what it boils down is that its your one freaking day off. Even if your family rules and you generally enjoy spending time with them, right now is the time to purge stress at the bar with some Christmas Day Drinking.
Thankfully, some selfless barkeeps are open on Friday, December 25:
* Bikini Lounge, 1502 Grand Avenue, will certainly be a hot spot for downtowners. Even though its Christmas, there will certainly be some interesting drama to gossip about heading into the New Year. Call 602-252-0472.
* Harveys Wineburger, 4812 North 16th Street, is totally the place to go if you werent feeling the family dinner. They plan on serving greasing grub and stiff beverages from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Call 602-248-9950.
* Coach House, 7011 East Indian School Road in Scottsdale, is the perfect establishment to take out-of-town guests because of the orgasmic holiday-lights display inside the historic tavern. Theyre in business from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. Call 480-990-3433.
Theres no cover at any of these joints.
