1 The Black Tape Project. What better way to celebrate ‘Blackout Wednesday’ than with some Black Tape? The Black Tape Project — think metallic body tape creations worn by models (in lieu of clothing) created by Miami designer Joel Alvarez — is coming to HQ2 Nightclub at 10 p.m. on Wednesday night. These definitely aren’t the clothes you’ll be rocking at Thanksgiving dinner, which makes the whole scene more exciting, more thrilling, and a best bet for celebrating Thanksgiving Eve. With music by Chris Devine and DJ Jason E, it’s a can’t miss. Located in Ocean Casino Resort at 500 Boardwalk in Atlantic City. Go to TheOceanAC.com for more information.
2 Playing with Fire. While just about every local bar will be home to boozy cocktails and plenty of peeps from your past, The Wave at Golden Nugget is keeping things toasty with fire pits, backyard games, half-price appetizers and drink specials starting at $3 at the outdoor veranda, in addition to live entertainment by Stellar Mojo inside starting at 8 p.m. Located at Golden Nugget at Huron Ave. and Brigantine Blvd. in Atlantic City. Go to GoldenNugget.com.
3 Boogie on Down. Celebrate the biggest party night of the year at Boogie Nights, where they’re feasting on $6 cocktail specials until midnight and half-price select liquor bottles. With music from the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, you won’t have to rely on running into your old high school classmates to have a nostalgic night out. Located in Tropicana at 2831 Boardwalk in Atlantic City. Go to BoogieNightsUSA.com.
4 Happy Anniversary. It’s already part reunion and part Thanksgiving … why not add “anniversary” to the list? At Tennessee Avenue Beer Hall, celebrate their one-year anniversary with giveaways, music from Glenn Roberts and Cranked Up Country at 9 p.m., and beat-the-clock specials including $4 craft beers and $4 cheeseburgers at 4 p.m.; $5 craft beers and $5 cheeseburgers at 5 p.m.; and $6 craft beers and $6 cheeseburgers from 6 to 8 p.m. Located at 133 S. Tennessee Ave. in Atlantic City. Go to TeennesseeAvenueBeerHall.com for more information.
5 Get Your Laugh On. Forget running into your former high school quarterback, class valedictorian, or the prom date that blew you off. Instead of heading to one of the many, many bars where small talk and a local band will be the highlight of your evening, go get some laughs. Tune into comedians James Goff, Robyn Schall and Mick Thomas at 9 p.m. at the Borgata Comedy Club or Vinnie Brand at 8 p.m. at the Howie Mandel Comedy Club at Hard Rock.
6 Pool Party. With the first sprinkling of snow already come and gone, who needs another cold night? Channel the summer — and summer parties — with a poolside Thanksgiving Eve Bash with DJ Pauly D at The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s. Located at 777 Harrah’s Blvd. in Atlantic City. Go to ThePoolAfterDark.com for more information.
