Close your laptop, forward your calls to voice mail and put on your comfiest sweatpants: Thanksgiving week has finally arrived and it’s time to do nothing but eat, drink and be very merry with friends and family. If you need a break from leftovers, head out for some fresh air and fun vibes all around the Bay. From outdoor markets to acclaimed musicals, high teas and dance parties, there are endless opportunities to commemorate the official start to the holiday season.
