There's more to November than Thanksgiving, so instead of spending the whole month counting down the days until you can stuff your face, start stuffing your month right now -- with all kinds of awesome things, including a few where you’ll be... stuffing your face.
Take your now useless jack-o'-lanterns/homemade pumpkin kegs to either Clement Clarke Moore Park or Sunnyside Greenmarket. You smash and the city cleans -- it’s perfect.

New menus all over the damn place
There’s just a crap load of fall menus that you need to go try: the po' boy and octopus BLT at Black Crescent, the Dandy Onassis (Applejack, Wolfamer Orange, apple liqueur, apple butter, cinnamon) at Maison Premiere, a burger made with beignets at Bo’s, plus everything at Experimental Cocktail Club.
The red and white huts that draw swarms of people in Union Square are back today -- get there and get your Xmas shopping out of the way ASAP. Bonus: bring a flask and find the gluhwein station. You won’t regret it.
