Let a Pitmaster Handle Your Turkey

And right when you need it, Thanksgiving just got 72% easier. Step #1: Order a whole wood-smoked turkey from the BBQ kingpins at Maple Block Meat Co.

Neil Young Will Never Die
FOREVER YOUNG

Neil Young Will Never Die

You enjoy art. You enjoy classic rock. So if you find yourself at the Morrison Hotel Gallery for Long May You Run, a one-day exhibit chronicling Neil Young’s iconic music career, then afterward you decide to head over to the Viper Room or something, well, that’s not a bad Friday, is it?

WOOD YOU RATHER

Nick Offerman Teaches You to Use a Table Saw

It’s not every day you get to watch Nick Offerman build furniture. Or any day, actually. But when the man who played Ron Swanson hosts an afternoon of woodworking activities, spoon carving and log-milling demos, you might almost feel like America will be okay.
