Gobble Gobble.
After you eat your turkey dinner five times over you are going to need to “walk it out”.
Below are a few events where you can walk it all out at. And please bring your whole family. I picked some cool events that I think everyone would be interested in. And the best part, they are FREE. So, no doing that awkward “who is going to pay for this” dance. I’m thankful for free events – how about you?

Aaannddd, to spice things up a bit on the car ride to the spot, I have also added two free mixtapes from DJ Alf Alpha and Classic Cult. If your family likes hip hop, pop in that Alf Alpha mix. If your family is from Florida, or just likes electro/techo, then pop in Classic Cults.

And finally, when all the Gma’s and Gpa’s, Moms, and Dads, Aunts and Uncles go to sleep, all the cousins should sneak out on Saturday night and head over to the Date Farmers Art Studio Party.

So, here we go. A list of things to do with your family on this wonderful Thanksgiving holiday:
