Before settling in-or traveling far-for the obligatory family turkey gathering, we recommend a night out on the town. And what better way to enjoy a good meal, fine wine, and the company of friends than an evening of food and music? For some rollicking good times-and some scrumptious food to boot-check out some Santa Barbara eateries that are currently booking dinnertime entertainment. We guarantee some delicious tunes to chow down to.

The Bay Cafe and Fish Market (131 Anacapa St.) considers itself one of Santa Barbara’s best-kept dining secrets, and we can’t help but agree. Delicate and delightful seafood fare is paired with live tunes on the patio Friday through Sunday at 6 p.m.

• Enjoy Southern eats and roadside blues at Tupelo Junction Cafe (1218 State St.) every Friday from 5:30-7:30 p.m. when the Stiff Pickle Orchestra plays to the loyal happy-hour crowds.

Quantum Kitchen & Cocktails (201 W. Carrillo St.) offers up delightful new American cuisine and an eclectic lineup of singer/songwriters every Wednesday and Thursday from 6:30-9:30 p.m.
