Dranksgiving, winter skating, Holidazzle: Freeloader Friday

The holiday weekend is here. And while many of us will be traveling, hanging with family, and and watching football on TV, there's still plenty of fun to be had in the cities with friends and fun relatives. This weekend the Holidazzle kicks off, Wells Fargo Winter Skate opens with a big tree-lighting ceremony, and there's lots of free music to be had.
