GRiZ headlines a night of booming beats at the Knitting Factory Tuesday.
Obviously Thanksgiving is the highlight of the week, when the lucky among us can look forward to obscene amounts of food and some family altercations that hopefully don't end up with hospital visits. Save some of that pent-up aggression for watching the Apple Cup on Friday, people!

Monday, Nov. 21
WORDS | Get into a little poetry performance at this month's Spokane Poetry Slam at The Bartlett.
Tuesday, Nov. 22
FOOD & DRINK | I love bourbon and I love stout, so I love everything about this idea: Goose Island is hosting a Bourbon Stout Release Party at the Legends of Fire cigar bar at Northern Quest. Cheers!

Thursday, Nov. 24
COMMUNITY | Join the BRCC Turkey Trot at Manito Park before you hunker down for football and feasting. Bring some food or cash for Second Harvest Food Bank—there's no registration fee for the race, so no excuses!
