Thanksgiving eve: Time to party with Wild Turkey at Seven Grand

November 23, 2011 |  3:41 pm

Fancy a traditional corn-hole toss on the night before Thanksgiving? You can compete like a pro at Seven Grand in downtown L.A., and you might take home the grand prize: A turkey stuffed with a bottle of Wild Turkey. Just be sure to pull the bottle out before you put that bird in the oven.

Yeah, I think it's a weird prize, too, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't be really into trying to win it. And you know what else I would be really into? Drinking the special punch that Seven Grand has concocted just in time to make people really hung over for Thanksgiving and its attendant deep-family time. A nice headache will get your mind off the other headaches of the day.

The punch is made with Wild Turkey bourbon (yes, Wild Turkey is sponsoring Seven Grand's "Thanksgiving Eve bash"), fresh citrus juices, spiced apple cider, fresh cranberries, nutmeg and cinnamon. The punch sells for $6 a boozy glass, with $1 being donated to the Midnight Mission for Thanksgiving Day dinners for the homeless.

Raffle tickets will also be awarded for every punch purchased, and for every $1 donated to the Midnight Mission at the door. Who knows? You just might win two turkeys stuffed with Wild Turkey. Who's a turkey now?
