You bring the side dish, and the bar brings the turkey — deep fried, by the way — at tonight's A Cocktails Cleveland Thanksgiving Potluck. For the third-annual holiday feast, bartender George Clendenning will also mix up Apple Cider shots made with anise-flavored Jägermeister, Apple Pucker schnapps, and a dash of pineapple juice, so you can toast the fact that you avoided your weird Uncle Ron for the third straight year. The event is "basically for our friends who have nowhere to go for Thanksgiving," says Stan Kawecki, manager of Cocktails, one of Cleveland's most popular gay hangs. "If you need to visit someone for the holidays, come visit us." Dig in at 6:30 tonight at Cocktails Cleveland, 9208 Detroit Avenue. Admission is free. Call 216-961-3115 or visit
Thu., Nov. 22, 6:30 p.m., 2007
