Weekend Guide: Winter Wonderlands & Whatnot

This is it…  the weekend before the most exciting day of the year (for food lovers) Thanksgiving.  The horn of plenty, the celebration of the harvest, clinking glasses with family, Macy’s Day parades, football and all such indulgences.  Take time to enjoy the weekend.  If you’ve planned well you don’t have to stress about coming week.  If you haven’t planned well, turn on the cartoons for the kids, grab a cup of coffee and a notepad and take a minute to plan. Then, get out and take advantage of some of the things going on this weekend.

Bust (the magazine not the body part) Holiday Craftacular

Visit the Holiday Craftacular at the Cyclorama in the South End.  Get all your shopping done before Thanksgiving and then you can enjoy the entire holiday season with a hot toddy and a biscuit while everyone else is somewhere else much less pleasant buying ugly, or uninspired junk they’d rather not be buying anyway.


Cultural Survival Bazaar at Cambridge College in Cambridge.  Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Shop the world and support artists and artisans.

Jingle Bell/Run Walk in Newton.  What better way to prepare for the Thanksgiving feast than by working up an appetite while getting into the spirit of things?  The race is at the Fessenden School in Newton.  There is a kids Santa dash as well as the run/walk.
