    Yeah, you've got the turkey, but what about the sides? Learn some tricks of the trade tonight.

    HOLIDAY HELP:  So Thanksgiving is less than a week away.  You've watched all the shows, read all the books, studied all the recipes and you've got the turkey thing down.  But a beautiful bird does not a fabulous feast make.  You've got to have the sides.  There's the stuffing, the sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, the green beans, the bread and oh yes, the cranberry sauce.  So what's a home cook to do?  Why, get some professional help.  Head to the Viking Center at Delia in Wallingford for a hands-on class on Thanksgiving sides.  From 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m., you'll get all the knowledge you need to make your family think you bought dinner from a pro.  The class is $85 to attend, but the reservations are worth every lip-smacking dollar.

    LET THERE BE LIGHTS:  Already looking past your Thanskgiving evening food-coma?  Head to Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven for a true Connecticut Holiday Tradition.  The 16th annual Fantasy of Lights is underway tonight.  Hop in your car, turn out the headlights, and drive (carefully) through an enchanting display of holiday lights.  The lights will be lit from 5 p.m.-9 p.m.  Proceeds from the $10-$50 tickets benefit Easter Seals.

    DOZING OFF:  It's all about the Rock and Roll tonight at Mohegan SunPhil Dirt & The Dozers are taking the stage at the Wolf Den.  They just sound like they should be wearing leather jackets with slicked back hair right?  The Dozers' show encompasses three decades of music, performed with a light-hearted attitude.  It's a show all ages will enjoy (as long as you're old enough to get into the casino).  the free show starts at 7 p.m.
