Bars, Restaurants, and More Open on Turkey Day in Denver

Whether the meal is traditional turkey with a glass of wine or going all Colorado with lamb chops and a beer, there are plenty of options for getting out of the house on Thanksgiving and celebrating the holiday with family, friends and neighbors.
