Top 5 Things to Do This Weekend

This weekend, while you're not working out in hopes of preempting next week's impending Thanksgiving calorie fest, there are plenty of ways to keep yourself occupied. 

Here are our top picks for things to do this weekend:

Sip, Shop, Spa & Pretty Party @ Talking Stick
Combine going out with chilling out during tonight's party at Talking Stick with free mini spa treatments (like a quick foot massage or sugar scrub), cocktails, and shopping from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on the fourteenth floor. Admission is free. See details here.

A Bitch in Time @ Space 55
Round two of fresh solo performances from local female performers including Beth May, Kim Porter, and Jackalope Ranch contributor Sativa Peterson.
