When nothing but a cold beer in a dark bar will calm your anxiety from uncle Max’s nonstop rants or Aunt Susan’s nosy questions, call an Uber and stop by one of these Miami bars for a Turkey Day pick-me-up.
30 SW 12th St., Miami

The Brickell bar will open at 3 p.m. for drinking and dancing off the turkey’s tryptophan effects.
