The Thanksgiving holiday is rapidly approaching, and most of us are still trying to figure out exactly what we're going to put on the table for the big meal. Sure, the food is going to be awesome, but there's much more to this holiday than just sitting around a table with your weird relatives, watching the Cowboys lose, and going to sleep early so you can shop on Black Friday.
If you're used to staying around in your eatin' pants during the Thanksgiving holidays, consider walking off a few hundred calories at one of these Thanksgiving week events. Who knows, maybe you'll even be able to get in a little Christmas shopping without having to punch someone in the face while waiting in line at Macy's.
Nasher Sculpture Center Is Open Monday
Monday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
The last time you were in the Arts District on a Monday, you might've been perplexed by the emptiness. So much so, in fact, that you find yourself avoiding the whole neighborhood at the beginning of the week. But your in-laws arrived early for Thanksgiving and you're banging your head on the refrigerator wondering what to do with them all week, which might be why the Nasher opened its doors today. For this Monday alone, you, the weary in-law entertainer, can take your perfectly wonderful mother-in-law to see one of the city's finest art institutions. Hours today are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is just $10, and there's a lovely cafe where you can hide out while your family explores the Heatherwick and Anna Bella Pappexhibitions. You've already seen them, and there's wine in the cafe.
