No plans for Thanksgiving Eve? Not feeling like hanging out with a bunch of shiny-shirt douchebags and coked-up skanks at some huge club, risk driving home while the city's finest are on red alert - as if they get commission on DUI's, only to feel like total hell at the biggest family get-together of the year tomorrow? We feel you. Here are a few more low key options in Detroit:

Tamion 12 Inch mastermind and former third head of ADULT. Sam Consiglio is exhibiting new visual work at Motor City Brewing Works. Every Wednesday artist, curator (and my former high school newspaper co-editor) Graem Whyte presents the work of area artists. Sam says, "this show should be of particular interest to fans of: Art, Movies, Music, Theater, Dance, Danzig, Cher, Magic, Muscles, Macho Mints, House, Home Furnishings and Decor, Pictures, Rock-Paper-Scissors, Girls that are Boys and Vise Versa." Well, if that dont' say it...

Afterwards, enjoy some nail-biting tournament bowling at America's oldest active bowling center. We'll be cheering on both the Wayne State University Art and Art History Department and "The Gawth Kids" (not only an apt description but the official name of their team. They happen to be in third place. Who ever said that pasty, gloomy, too-smart-for-their-own-good kids would never be good at sports?)

If that's not enough excitement for you, head over to OSLO for Ass Falcon - the sushi lounge's bi-weekly art opening, featuring the photography of Justin Ames. Our good friends Matt Abbott of CPM, David Blunk of the Undercover Eskimo Collective and Imperial Empire will be "throwing down the wax," as they say. (I don't know who actually says that... somebody... I guess.)

Happy Turkey Day!
