Do you have a complex, time-consuming, or otherwise difficult-to-make item that you’re intending to bring to Thanksgiving dinner? Consider starting that today. My brother and I make a sourdough-applesauce-whole wheat bread (that has since involved to include beer and honey) that is particularly frustrating to bake, to such an extreme that our friends joke that the tears shed during its creation are one of the key ingredients. That’s going in the oven Wednesday — we’ll probably make another sourdough starter the day before because we can barely keep ourselves alive, much less an edible yeast colony. Try to do your grocery shopping earlier in the week, though, because it’s sure to be a madhouse out there today! -Spencer Tordoff / Web Editor

THANKSGIVING!!!!! Take the time off of school to relax and eat a lot! If you aren’t home, there’s still plenty to do in Fairbanks, such as the Art Department’s presentation of Amara Simmons’ BFA Exhibition going on all day in the art gallery. -Zayn Roohi / Photo Editor

There’s a Holiday Bazaar going on at Pioneer Park at 12 p.m.! If you like looking for unique and interesting Holiday gifts, this might be a good place to check out.  Perhaps look for something for a friend, a family member or a significant other.  I tend to think of this time of year as a time for giving thanks, obviously, but I also like to think of it as a time for giving, period.  My advise is to use this Black Friday to consider others: specifically the people you care about. -Kyrie Long / Copy Editor

If you’re ready to throw yourself headfirst into Christmas-y nonsense mere days after Thanksgiving, starting Nov. 28 is the “Christmas in Ice” event, an ice park located next to the Santa Claus house in North Pole. It will have all of the usual mazes, slides, and ice sculptures to check out. Alternatively, if you’re not ready to give up the Thanksgiving spirit you could always stay home and gorge yourself on pie. Guess which one I’ll be doing! -Molly Putman / Layout Editor

Get over that bout of holiday-self-indulgence-induced food coma (be it from turkey, tofurky, or otherwise) by learning a new martial art (for only $7)! Every Monday night at 6:30 the Shoryukan Dojo hosts aikido lessons with Sensei James Fish at Artisan’s Courtyard (right down College from campus). Please feel free to call (907) 388-8375 for more information. -Lida Zakurdaew / Distribution Manager
