Thanksgiving Weekend Roundup

Hi everyone! I know we’ve been quiet this week – the holidays are busy!

If you’re broke like us, you may be looking for a free meal tomorrow. You’re in luck! The Laugh Factory is hosting its 32nd annual Thanksgiving Feast for anyone. Comedians will serve guests and perform between meals all day. Come from 1pm to 8pm to get your FREE meal. If you do have some cash to spend, Fig Restaurant in Santa Monica has some relatively cheap options $10-$20 (and some to-go options that are more expensive).

After all that food, you may want to get out there, start holiday shopping and feeling the holiday magic! Below are some great events to help you do so:

1. Hollywood Wonderland at the Hollywood Museum – From today to January 22, 2012, The Hollywood Museum will transform into a Winter Wonderland. 18 Christmas trees will decorate the museum inspired by great Christmas movies.
