Better call the boss and tell them you're going to be late to work on Friday, because the night before is jam-packed with alcohol-soaked festivities (with burgers, steak, and fried chicken to help soak it all up). If your calendar's already full on Thursday, there are still delicious events happening on Wednesday and Saturday too. Enjoy!
