Shakespeare wrote the maxim “all’s well that ends well,” and the same could be said for the marathon that is Thanksgiving.

In Chattanooga, the end of day can be anything from a midnight dance party to a cigar and a scotch. Find your old friends who are home for the holiday or scoot out of the awkward evening with the in-laws-whatever the situation, you’re sure to find a way to unwind.
