Well, it's that time of year and the snow is here people. Giselle didn't think she'd make it because her street wasn't plowed. It's our Friday, sorry retail people. We're counting down to turkey and giving you all the tips to surviving the holiday weekend.

6:15 Blackout Wednesday Tips and Tricks

Tonight is the biggest drinking night of the year, Black Out Wednesday, so we wanted to give you the best in hangover cures. You should have started drinking water now to stay hydrated and avoid that nasty hangover when you have to deal with children and family. Here's what not to do: Don't binge watch Netflix, although we aren't all in agreement with that one. Pedialite is your best friend, and don't skip breakfast tomorrow. Best tip though? Don't drive drunk tonight, Uber, Lyft and ride shares are all options so don't do it and don't end up in jail. Just don't.

6:30 Bastille Interview

We talked with Dan Smith of Bastille this morning who is not actually named Dan Bastille as Ben likes to think. He will be in town for Snow Show 2016 at the Myth with Coin, Judah and the Lion, and Banks. Who's excited?

6:50 The Trend 

Big movie weekend with Moana, Bad Santa 2 and Allied all out this weekend. Starbucks will be raising their prices, again. Celebrities were honored yesterday at the Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony, and one of them almost didn't make it in the White House.

7:15 Thanksgiving Success! 

There are some weird turkey combos, like the "chicken spider with claws" that is actually a turkey stuffed with lobster and octopus...interesting right? What about dabbing into some turkey wellington? Dana's take on the whole thing is just to smoke the turkey with some ribs and then throw away the turkey. There are also a lot of toxic pet foods, so don't be feeding the dog any stuffing or bones, it's not safe for them!

7:30 $1000 Minute 

Katie, with a K and "ie" played a fantastic game of $1000 Minute and was so close to taking home $1000. Play everyday with Ben, Dana and Giselle.

8:15 Get To Know 

Some people keep it simple and put basic stuffing in their turkey, but why keep it simple if you could change it up a little? Everyone knows the turducken, the turkey duck chicken combo that has people confused and intrigued. Ben's pick for an off-the-wall stuffing is queso, just let your cheese free! A bacon stuffed turkey? Say it isn't so, but we are also hoping for that! We heard from some of you who wanted a couple crazy things in there like buffalo chicken dip, soaking turkey in beer and even cheesy potatoes. Yeah, we can't wait to eat tomorrow either.
