When you have no money and live far away from your folks, the holidays can seem like sort of a bummer. Not being able to see your family can put a real damper on the holiday spirit, even if yours rivals Buddy the Elf's. However, Friendsgiving is a popular remedy — and with good reason! Not only will your besties at Friendsgiving not judge you for 1) serving fancy-ass cocktails that may contain the same ingredients as the turkey brine, but they will 2) also encourage the excess consumption of said cocktails.
We know throwing together a Friendsgiving bash in your 400 sq. ft. apartment can seem like an insurmountable task, especially if dinner prep includes a trip to IKEA to buy a real table, finally. So we're here to help you look like you know what the hell you're doing and have an enviable table setting, even if you do burn the turkey and serve the gravy in a red Solo cup.
