If you're doing life at all right, you are starving yourself today so that you may gorge on dry, flightless bird and bread-based casserole tomorrow. Therefore, with the blood-sugar dropping, the screen may appear but a blurry haze right now. But soldier on, Park Slope givers-of-thanks, holiday celebrations don't mean you must give up your regular Brooklyn partying ways. Welcome to Whassup: Thanksbrooklyning Edition:
* Wednesday, Nov. 27: 45 Candles, Union Hall: The '80s did, in fact, end. And yet, we never did get to find out what happened to Ferris Bueller, the Breakfast Club Gang or Say Anything's stereo-wielding anything-sayer. Tonight, we learn their fates in a series of fan fiction pieces that imagine if John Hughes characters had "grown the fuck up." My guess is they're all forced to deal with teenagers as irritatingly self-absorbed as they were. 8pm, $7.
* Wednesday, Nov. 27: Thanksgiving Eve with Black Dragon, Littlefield: NYC-natives Black Dragon play joyous funk to get you in the holiday spirit, and help work off some booty weight before Thursday's gorgeathon. 9pm, $10.
* Thursday, Nov. 28 (aka Thanksgiving): Open Restaurants: Just because your mom is far away in Kansas, wondering what sins you've gotten yourself into in New York, doesn't mean you can't eat well over Thanksgiving. Brooklyn Based lined up four restaurants where you can still book a Thanksgiving dinner, while Brokelyn goes for broke(lyn) with a megalist of 24 BK restaurants open on Turkey Day. If you do go this route, be sure to tip well -- you know serving assholes like us can't be fun on a holiday.
