I think this might be the earliest party train yet. Part Catholic Guilt and part desire to do absolutely nothing for the next couple of days. Hopefully most of you have the week off and can take advantage of some of the fun this next week. Jimi Hendrix tribute, MoVember & MoStache Bash, Cage the Elephant, Gary Clark Jr, Seth Walker, T Bird and the Breaks, Butter Ball, Lyle Lovette, Ryan Bingham etc and so on and so forth and for those who choose to work off the food before you actually consume it, the Turkey Trot.
