Drink and Jive!


Be mindful not to gorge yourself on Thanksgiving day because you'll have to squeeze into that old (but still groovy) glowing-white Saturday Night Fever suit or a pair of leopard-print hot pants. Better yet, eat enough to feed both the pilgrims and Native Americans, and then slide right into some sassy one-size-fits-most Lycra bell-bottoms. Yes, folks, this holiday is stayin' alive at Jive Turkey, a disco-themed celebration that reminds you to "be thankful for da funk." Five bucks or a canned-food donation will get your boogie-starved booty in the door, and $3 Turkey Bombs and/or $2.50 wells and domestics will loosen you up for when DJ Daddy J throws down jams popular more than 30 years ago (mixed in with the current Top 40 hits, of course). The best part? The couple donning the sexiest "disco duds" will take home $500 cash. Jive time is from 10 p.m. 'til 3 a.m. at Throttle (720 North First Street), downstairs from the Feisty Bulldog on the Landing. For more information call 314-241-1000 or visit and
