THEATER
Upright Citizens Brigade is back at it with their annual Thanksgiving Feast Show that celebrates all the family-awkardness you can expect on a holiday such as this. Advance reservations are sold out for this uber-popular event, but there will be a stand-by line for the 8 p.m. show so get there early to get your family dysfunction on tonight.

WINE TASTING
Take a break from Beaujolais overload and pick a better brand of cab for turkey day. Taste several budget friendly cabs at San Dimas Wine Shop & Tasting Room this evening. No reservations are required, tasting starts at 7 p.m.

ELECTRONICA
The Airliner is known for LOW END THEORY Wednesday nights and just because it's Thanksgiving Eve doesn't mean you have to skip a night at The Airliner. Tonight's show features Take and starts at 8 p.m.

ENJOY OUR EMPTY CITY
If a visit to The Gorbals downtown last night is any indication, L.A. is deliciously devoid of crowds right now as many Angelenos have traveled outside the city to be with family. Consider this a directive to take full advantage of never-available but now yours-for-the-taking parking spots, restaurant tables, freeway lanes and ever-crowded workout hangouts.
