1. Go see a movie. Last weekend, “Justice League” took in the top box office movie with over $93 million. “Wonder” trailed behind with a cool $27 million. Other notable movies to watch this week leading up the Thanksgiving feast is ‘Thor: Ragnaork,’ ‘Daddy’s Home 2’ and ‘Murder on the Orient Express.’ Click here to check out Waco’s movie listings.

2. Visit an art exhibit. For months along Waco Creek, Dallas artist Ericka Huddleston has been admiring and researching the difference aspects of the creek to capture in her paintings. The art exhibit is open until Jan. 21, but it will close for the Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 23. Tickets for adults are $8.

3. Listen to live music. Country band The Juhks will be playing at the Waco Winery and Vineyard for free.

4. Make some Thanksgiving meals. If you aren’t spending Thanksgiving with your family, you can cook like you are. Pinterest and Google all the pies and stuffing recipes you can create in your apartment kitchen. It is the season to be grateful, but it is also the season to eat.
