It's time to get your gobble on – Thanksgiving has arrived. Amidst the gluttony, family and Tryptophan-induced comas, a few glimmers of fun still exist and we’ve pulled them all together. So give sitting at home the bird and head out to one of these see-and-be-seen, shop-and-be-shopped events.
Tuscan-Twist Thanksgiving at Ferré
Thursday, November 22, 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
If passing the gravy around the family dinner table is just too passé, let Ferré serve up an Italian-themed Thanksgiving meal. Mom’s green-bean casserole falls flat when compared to Cider-Cured Pork Loin over maple whipped yams with wilted Swiss chard and apple-marsala jus.
Three courses for $34.95 per person
Ferré Restaurant e Bar
2699 McKinney Ave #106 (in the West Village)
Through Saturday, November 24
Found objects, complicated layers of paint and botanic tree-forms dominate the last weekend of this three-person exhibition with works by Marci Crawford Harnden, Norman Kary and Steve Seinberg. A cute outfit, a little wine, witty conversation and maybe you could find an object of your affection too. Who says you only have to look at art in the gallery?
1011 Dragon Street
Wednesday, November 28, 7 p.m.
We would be dating ourselves if we admitted to owning Blondie on vinyl, so we won’t. Suffice to say, we knew her when she was “Debbie” and she still has our heart (of glass).
House of Blues
2200 N Lamar Street
The Trains at NorthPark, Benefiting Ronald McDonald House of Dallas
Through January 1, 2008
Admit it, you’ll be at the mall on Black Friday anyway building up your shopping bag biceps. So make tracks to NorthPark’s annual train exhibit featuring 28,000 square-feet of cutesy choo-choo’s and more caboose than J. Lo in spandex.
Monday through Friday – 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Sunday – noon to 6 p.m.
