If you’re looking for something to do over the long holiday weekend – be it dance your face off or burn off some pre-turkey calories at one of the many road races taking place tomorrow – you’ve come to the right place.

Personally, I would recommend steering VERY clear of anything to with shopping on Friday, but I know there are plenty of folks who really enjoy the whole Black Friday thing, and even make a regular tradition of it.

Whatever your pleasure, the Mistress of Fun has something for you. Read on to see her recommendations for this 2019 Thanksgiving experience.
