Revel in NY: Weekend Happenings Nov.25th - Nov. 27th

Well I must say my house is sure smelling great right now and the Hubby is just about finished. My parents are hosting Thanksgiving dinner at their place this year for about 18 people and my Hubby was given the main attraction "The Turkey". Everyone knows that my Hubby loves to throw down in the kitchen and has to out do himself every year. The flavorful aromas in here are making my mouth water with excitement {I'm sorry I can't share with you}. I've never really been a fan of turkey but he's completed brining the bird and I'll probably steal a piece before we even make it to dinner. Here's a video on brining in case you've never tried it. Recently the Hubby tried it with chicken and it was amazingly moist and juicy{don't tell him I shared this with you he'd kill me}. Are you hosting Thanksgiving dinner or are you going to a collective get together of loved ones? What's your must have on the menu? My boys and I wish you and your loved ones continued blessings and full tummies. Happy Thanksgiving! Here's a brief weekend list of things happening in NYC this weekend, enjoy!

Urban Ballet Theater re-imagines The Nutcracker with krumping rats and popping soldiers in Nutcracker in the Lower for its 10th anniversary year. Daniel Catanach, Artistic Director of UBT, is acclaimed for his movement vocabulary that innovates storytelling for both children and adults. Nutcracker in the Lower explodes with daring delight, twisting the classic story of Clara and her magical adventures to reflect Manhattan's cultural diversity.Tchaikovsky's original score remains largely intact throughout the ballet, injected  with the baselines of hip-hop and the burnished cante of flamenco.
Location: Abrons Art Center 466 Grand street at Pitt street.
