Marisa: At the Highlander. They do a really good Thanksgiving dinner, then you can get drunk and not have to worry about the shame of doing it in front of your folks. That’s the spirit of Thanksgiving! And instead of hearing early Christmas carols or crappy family music, you get heavy metal. Sweet. I’d be more thankful if my fiance was down here. He’s in Canada. Canadians have their Thanksgiving in October. But it’s not a real Thanksgiving, much like their money and their army.

Frank: Make your own dinner. It doesn’t have to be turkey. If your favorite dish is lasagna, cook lasagna. Bring your music, spoil yourself. Take that long shower or bath. A holiday is a day off. The pressure people put on themselves to make the turkey is almost like a wedding. It’s just a freakin’ Thursday. Relax. With turkeys being so big, you can roast a chicken with the stuffing and turkey gravy. It will be just like Thanksgiving, and you will still have leftovers.

Shenise: Thanksgiving is a really wonderful movie day. There are no Emory students in there. They’re out of town, so you get to enjoy your movie and hang out with cool people who actually want to see the movie. Have you ever been stuck behind an Emory student at a movie? You know they’re Emory students by how many times they say “like” in a sentence. They sit in front of me with their really big heads and ruin my Wes Anderson movie.
