What to do when you just can’t eat any more Turkey

When Mom has run out of ideas on how to fashion stuffing left-overs, and the idea of cranberry sauce just about makes you nauseous, it’s time to go see a guy who never runs out of ideas.

The event will take place this Friday, November 26 from 7pm-11:30pm at the Kessler/X+ Art Gallery 1230 West Davis Street
