We are back with another weekly round-up of what we are loving this Wednesday.
November 23 – McKenzie’s Run
One of the most enjoyable 5K’s in Jacksonville is this weekend at the Bank. Run for a good cause. Run because the smell of the Maxwell factory is like no other (in a good way). Run because it might be the only chance to be on a pro football field, run because you are about to feast…whatever the reason, register and run.
November 24 – Canine Field Day
Sunday it’s the dogs’ chance to run. For $10, your pup can explore acres and acres at the beautiful Congaree and Penn Farm. Should you get parched on the 10-minute walk to the off-leash area there will be a pop-up bar available.
November 24 – John Oates at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall
Calling all Maneaters! Oh, oh here he comes. John Oates is playing this weekend. Watch out now, the new album is a soulful mix with a little bit country a little bit blues and a little bit bluegrass.
Meal planning for the epic food holiday can require a little research. Chrissy Teigan has a new website full of comforting and delicious ideas and Half Baked Harvest, a popular cooking blog, has a full menu guide on her site. Prefer to dine out? Jacksonville Magazine has a good list of restaurants open on Thanksgiving.
This is not new, but new to me. If you are interested in football or stories told well, I recommend giving The Gladiator a listen. It’s the Aaron Hernandez story reported by the Boston Globe Spotlight Team. I am only on episode three but am completely hooked.
