You know the spiel by now: Thanksgiving Eve is the unofficial drinking holiday nine-to-fivers live for –the coveted breathing room between work and the Thanksgiving Day stresses of family matters, whether in the gay world or otherwise.

Here, we lasso up all of the LGBT-related shenanigans happening tonight in our darling City of Brotherly Love — including one that just might tickle you “pink.” Read more »

Weather May Complicate Your Thanksgiving Plans

ABC News reports: “Thanksgiving travelers scrambled to book earlier flights Tuesday to avoid a sprawling storm bearing down on the East Coast with a messy mix of snow, rain and wind that threatened to snarl one of the busiest travel days of the year and ground giant balloon versions of Snoopy and SpongeBob SquarePants in the Macy’s parade.”

Fat Pants: 5 Stylish Pants That Will Expand With You On Thanksgiving


“Oh, don’t even tell me she’s trying to look all cute in those tight pants on Thanksgiving.”

Three Super-Obvious Things Not To Wear On Thanksgiving:

1. Spanx. C’mon. Give yourself a break.

2. Tights. (These will inevitably roll down and begin to cut off your circulation around whatever course includes stuffing.)

3. High-waisted anything.

I have, at one point or another, worn each of these on Thanksgiving and I still regret it. My secret weapon? The pajama pant, that gift from the heavens that is both slouchy-chic (yes, that’s a thing) and wonderfully, blissfully, eat-all-the-freaking-food-you-want comfortable. Here, five pairs of pants (and what to wear with them) that are blessedly free of pesky things like buttons and zippers and belt-loops, so you can eat as much as you please without feeling restricted.

You’re welcome. Now pass the stuffing. (And maybe don’t tell my friends over at Be Well Philly about this, okay?)

Your most comfortable Thanksgiving ever awaits!

So go vote!
