Things to do for November 25, 2015

The Weekender

Oreo Donuts, Trolley Rides and Thanksgiving Karaoke

Plymouth Weekend.

Wednesday
Baker Miller to the Thanksgiving Rescue
THEY’RE THE MILLERS

Baker Miller to the Thanksgiving Rescue

24 hours until Thanksgiving: Sh*t. You should really consider bringing something to the feast. 18 hours until Thanksgiving: You head to Baker Miller’s new Hot Bar for some malted-milk-custard-stuffed Oreo “dough-nots” and other such pastries. Six hours until Thanksgiving: You ate all the “dough-nots.” Thanksgiving: Thought that counts.

Thursday
This Isn’t Supposed to Make Sense
HEY, BUB

This Isn’t Supposed to Make Sense

You always play football on Thanksgiving. And watch football. And eat a bunch of turkey and stuffing and pumpkin pie. What you never do: sing late-night live-band karaoke at Bub City with those crazy cousins you only see once a year. Until now. Until now...

Friday
A Trilevel Fitness Studio. Timely.
THREE’S COMPANY

A Trilevel Fitness Studio. Timely.

One way to handle that post-Thanksgiving food coma: absolving your gluttonous sins at this brand-new, three-story fitness club with interval training, hot yoga and a cycling studio. Another way: making a sandwich out of leftovers and sitting down. We shouldn’t have mentioned that other way.

Saturday
Black Friday’s a Mess. Do This Instead.
DUE WEST

Black Friday’s a Mess. Do This Instead.

Black Friday vs. West Town Winterfest: A Comparison.

Black Friday: Everywhere’s packed, everyone’s crazy, and physical violence is a potential factor.
West Town Winterfest: You and your date can take a leisurely ride on a trolley through West Town’s nicest bars, restaurants and shops.

Glad we did this.

Monday
Your Monday Morning Cure-All
DOVE THE ONE YOU’RE WITH

Your Monday Morning Cure-All

You’ve got a long holiday weekend to look forward to. But come Monday, Monday comes again. Thankfully, Dove’s Luncheonette has a new grab-and-go weekday breakfast involving carnitas burritos and $1 Dark Matter coffee. Which doesn’t help, but also helps.
