Ever wonder what a food influencer brings to Thanksgiving? Each Tuesday, Kevin and Jenna talk about all things food in Connecticut with Alex from CT FoodGirly. Today, Alex shares the best spots to celebrate the biggest party night of the year: Thanksgiving Eve! She also brings us into what Thanksgiving with her family looks like, and her favorite Thanksgiving-food based tradition. 

Thanksgiving Eve in Connecticut from CT FoodGirly:

- Dockside Brewery is having a thanksgiving eve party starting at 8pm and it is 80’s vibe
themed. They have a DJ, photo booth, an 80s costume contest and themed cocktails for
the night with free entry. I’m headed here next Thursday for a cocktail party with some
other food influencers and I’m super excited to check out their new lodge space.

- Also in Milford, the Stonebridge Restaurant is having a country style themed party with
the band Zac N Fried, who is a Zac Brown Tribute band. This place can get pretty
packed pretty fast, so I’m sure the line will be out the door all night long.

- In Fairfield, Geronimo’s Tequila Bar is hosting a party and having a DJ there starting at
10PM. I used to go to the Geronimo’s in New Haven for my Thanksgiving Eve, and it’s
such a fun atmosphere to meet up and hangout with old friends. And speaking of New
Haven, Toad’s Place is having their thanksgiving eve blacklight glow party at 9:00, which
looks like a lot of fun.
