Turkey, Massages and Breaking a World Record

The weekend makes a mean corn bread sausage stuffing.

Wednesday
Thursday
A Record-Breaking Turkey Run
WILD TURKEYS

A Record-Breaking Turkey Run

This Thursday, you’re rewriting the record books. Also, dressing like a wild bird. Because at the Turkey Trot 5K, they’re putting together the largest gathering of humans in turkey costumes. Your attire: a headpiece, tail feathers and maybe some kind of webbed running shoe.

A Gratis Thanksgiving Meal at Norma’s
THE NORM

A Gratis Thanksgiving Meal at Norma’s

Cooking. Giving. And lots and lots of family time. It’s all happening tomorrow. But just in case you and Grandma need a break, Norma’s will be serving up a gratis Thanksgiving meal, replete with cranberries and rolls and pecan pie. Oh, right: there’s turkey, too.

Friday
How to Relax on Black Friday
DIRECT MASSAGE

How to Relax on Black Friday

Black Friday: stressful. Here’s what you do. Head to the Ritz spa, maybe get a massage, then pick up some spa products, apparel, candles and home decor for 50% off. Note: technically, the massage part is optional.

Lights, Hot Chocolate and a Carriage
PONY UP

Lights, Hot Chocolate and a Carriage

Nothing says fail-proof date like a carriage and Christmas lights. This Friday you and up to 11 carriage-worthy guests can be pulled through Highland Park. Tip: you can spike your hot chocolate as long as the cup has a lid. Tip 2: make sure your cup has a lid.

Nov 25-Jan 1, 3300 Mockingbird Ln, 214-263-7498, reserve here

Wednesday
Partying with a Room Full of Mustaches
NICE ’STACHE

Partying with a Room Full of Mustaches

Hotel ZaZa’s celebrating the last day of Movember with a mustache-friendly blowout. (By mustache-friendly we mean there’s vodka and a DJ.) You can lose the ’stache at their straight-razor shave booth. Or jump on the massive rocking horse for a “mustache ride.” And by rocking horse we mean a rocking horse.

Nov 30, 8pm-2am, Hotel ZaZa, 2332 Leonard St, 214-468-8399
