Once the turkey has been reduced to leftovers and the football games have all ended, there's a very real question to be asked: What do we do now? Today's Weekend section is all about helping you survive the next few days. If you haven't picked up a copy yet, here's what's inside.
Neko Case is coming to D.C. on Dec. 1, but she won't be with the New Pornographers, and you won't find her on stage at the 9:30 Club or Black Cat.

While most bars are closed on Thanksgiving night, the places that are open often have great deals. Check out these options if you need a fun place to hang out with visiting family (or a convenient escape from the in-laws). We'll be adding to this post as we hear about more bars, so keep checking back before heading out on Thursday.
