It's official, the holidays have started and it's time to gobble up the fun in Hillcrest.

Thanksgiving weekend starts on Thursday and if you don't like cooking at home, or can't for whatever reason, there is plenty of room at the table in various locations around the community from Crest Cafe to the Missiongathering Church.

Once you're done eating head out to the party. There's the Turkey Shuffle at Flicks and SDPIX's Wonderland at Urban Mo's to name a few. 

So whether you're taking time to catch up with family or just want to get away for a bit, there is plenty of things to do this week in Out & About. 

And don't forget to shop local for Small Business Saturday on Nov. 30.
