The Week Ahead: Friday, November 18 through Sunday, November 27, 2016
November 18, 2016
If you check in with the Week Ahead on a regular basis you’ll find this one somewhat different. Leading up to Thanksgiving, mid-week events are understandably somewhat sparse as folks shop, travel and ready themselves for the holiday. So instead of our day by day listing of events, you’ll find this week’s selection extending into the holiday weekend, when we expect most of us will be ready to get out and experience what the Week Ahead has to offer. Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the Week Ahead.
