Where To Go If You're Stuck In The City This Thanksgiving

by SARAH KUNST · November 25, 2009

Be it personal preference or evil office policies of work on Friday, many of New York's most social will be in town this Wednesday through Sunday and we know just where they should pre-party, eat, and post party all weekend long. Skim through the must attend events, look back on what we were grateful for in years past, and don't forget to calculate the damage you're about to do to your winter figure. This is the holiday jump off people, let's get it started right! [picture from Lydia Hearst's Thanksgiving Eve Bash 2008]
