Thanksgiving brings family together but the search for things to do and places to eat might be tough with many businesses closed for the holiday season.

Luckily, a few businesses are keeping their doors open for patrons. Here are a few spots in Scottsdale you can count on for fun, entertainment and dining options.

Agave Del Scottsdale

Agave del Scottsdale celebrates the vibrant cuisine of Mexico City. The chef driven menu includes traditional mole, modern seafood and classic comfort dishes–all made from scratch. Their dishes are made with recipes of authentic and traditional blends of spices and ingredients that have been passed down from their ancestors, through many generations. Their ancestors were inhabitants from areas of Mexico such as Yucatan, Mazatlan, Puebla and Veracruz.  Hand crafted cocktails featuring a vast selection of tequila and other spirits are offered at the bar. The lively space is welcoming and will stimulate all your senses. The restaurant is located at 8390 E. Via de Ventura in Scottsdale. Visit the website Agave Del Scottsdale Restaurant.
