Free Events This Week: Thanksgiving Paw Drive, Photos with Santa, and a Holiday Buffet

We're thisclose to Thanksgiving break. Seriously, we can smell the stuffing. And since this work week is a total bust anyway, you might as well make lots of plans to pass the hours until you're free to go apeshit on some pumpkin pie.

Here are a few free things to add to your list, so you can save your pennies for shopping hell at Best Buy come Thursday night.


Thanksgiving Paw Drive at the Lokal: If you aren't willing to lend a hand to help homeless pets, you truly are a heartless bastard. Bring towels, blankets, sheets and donations and score drink and food specials.

Photos with Santa at Bass Pro Shops: Even if your only offspring is a beta fish, you can still sit on Santa's lap and pose for Polaroids. Not creepy at all.


Free Affordable Care Act workshop at Palmetto Bay Library: Clueless about Obamacare like everyone else? Get your facts straight at this free schooling.


Thanksgiving buffet at Ted's Hideaway: Nowhere to go for Turkey Day? Ted's hosts an annual feast for customers in need of a little holiday bonding.
