Biggest party night of the year? Eh. Gobble Gobble. Last night marked the biggest party night of the year, which I never really understood because who wants to eat turkey and gravy hung over? Not this girl. Regardless, my friends partook in the Harrisburg Thanksgiving Bar Tour — five bars, $15 bucks, and a lot of crazy pictures. Trust me — it was hard to say no. They started at Sawyers and made their way to Hardware Bar and Bourbon Street before calling it a night. What can I say? The idea of eight hours of sleep followed by mashed potatoes far outweighed any mixed drink special. If you’re starting your Black Friday shopping at

insanely early hours of the morning tomorrow (sorry, I am a big proponent of Cyber Monday in my PJs), then by 11 a.m. you’ll be ready for a nap — or a Bloody Mary. My neighbor Scott has the best recipe in town. I’m told the secret is something to do with adding celery seed to the mix. In my humble opinion, Bloodys are best when they sit for a day in the fridge, so make yours early. If you’re in for a little kick, add Absolute

CALC • Continued from D4 membership can be obtained on the spot for $25. While many of the items in the sales gallery are purchased for family members and friends, patrons also enjoy picking up a different kind of gift for clients and as hostess presents, notes Macaluso. And, as always, CALC will be offering gift certificates, which are good toward artwork or classes, the latter being especially popular around the holidays with grandparents who want their grandchildren to be involved with the center, she says. But, in addition to the gifts, the focus of Art for the Holidays is on supporting the talented artists in Carlisle’s own backyard. “Instead of having an exhibit with artists that have gone through a juried process, this is one of two

Peppar. I can’t compete with my neighbor’s recipe, so instead I’ll just say if you meet anyone named Scott that lives in Midtown, you should friend him immediately. This is the one time I’ll advocate talking to strangers — only because he’s awesome. So I finally checked out Brick City Bar & Grille in Midtown (1313 N. Second St., to be exact). It’s slightly upscale, but then again I’m basing that off it being a block from Shady McGrady’s. The food was decent and reasonably priced, and we got seated immediately. I would say it’s a great first date or catch up with friends restaurant, as there’s ample space to spread out. Plus

the vibe is just really chill — which is a lovely break from the house music at the bars further down on Second Street. It may not be the classiest drink ever, but I’ve got to admit it’s good, and it came as a birthday present from my good friend Apes. Smirnoff makes these pre-mixed Cosmopolition and Pomegranete Martinis. I love ’em. I have to add a bit of water to the mix (it can be a wee bit sweet), but if I have friends coming over I’ll just pour it in a fancy pitcher, cut up some limes, break out the martini glasses and *poof* people think I’m a mixologist. ——— As a friendly reminder, please drink responsibly.

Out with Erica Reporter Erica Dolson shares tips for 20-something entertainment that doesn’t involve Second Street.

Happy Thanksgiving! The winter holiday season truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year. It’s not only because of extra time spent with family and friends or the feelings of goodwill that seem to come with this season. It’s also because there are so many fun things to do. Last weekend, on a whim, I decided to attend the holiday parade in Harrisburg. It has been nearly 20 years since I have been to a parade (not including any that I have been assigned to cover), and I almost forgot about the cheery atmosphere — lively marching bands, persistent souvenir vendors, chilly weather. Being outside at the parade reminded me of the holidays before December meant final exams, end-ofyear stories and Christmas shopping.

This week, I’m going to encourage you to take a break from the holiday preparations to get into the holiday spirit. Visit the Dickens of a Christmas event in downtown Mechanicsburg on Friday, go to the Toys for Tots holiday parade in Carlisle this Saturday or check out Hersheypark’s Christmas Candy Lane. Take in a holiday show, like “A Christmas Carol,” being performed at Open Stage in Harrisburg, or “The Nutcracker,” being staged by the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. — Erica Dolson, Sentinel Reporter

But not everyone has her best interest at heart, so she’ll have to cling tight to her values to figure out whom she should trust. And she’ll do it ... in song!

“Faster” (R for violence, some drug use and language. 98 minutes) H — Recent films of revved-up adrenaline are like movies on steroids, and cause some of the same side effects: nausea, stunted growth and probably some liver damage. George Tillman Jr.’s film begins with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s character literally sprinting out of jail, released in a seething rage from a 10-year prison sentence. The movie is in such a hurry that it doesn’t bother to slow down for proper names, instead referring to its main characters as archetypes: Johnson is “Driver,” Billy Bob Thornton is “Cop” and newcomer Oliver Jackson-Cohen is “Killer.” “Love & Other Drugs” (R for strong sexual content, nudity, pervasive language and some drug content. 112 minutes) HH — Despite its dramatic pretenses and far racier sex scenes than the typical studio romance, Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway’s latest is as predictable and sappy as any other run-of-the-mill Hollywood love story. Gyllenhaal and Hathaway, who costarred as an unhappily married couple in “Brokeback Mountain,” this time play the bumpy romance between a hotshot pharmaceutical salesman and a woman with early onset Parkinson’s disease. Co-written by director Edward Zwick, the screenplay shoves the two together awkwardly — and keeps them coming back together even more awkwardly — undermining the easy, genuine sense of affection and passion the stars manage. — Associated Press

On Saturday night, Baltimore-based rock and soul quintet The Almighty Senators take the stage with Hexbelt and DJ Geoffro. “That’s a big deal because the Almighty Senators don’t do a whole lot of shows anymore,” says Greenbelt Events owner Mike Van Jura, who handles the ABC music bookings. “And having them and Hexbelt together in Harrisburg will be just a real fun dancing type of night.” On Friday, Dec. 3, reggae band Jah Works returns to notch up the party atmosphere. Also hailing from Baltimore, the band is widely known for its original reggae music as well as its high energy performances. “That will be a lot of fun. They’ve played here three or four times now, and it’s always a good time,” says Van Jura. “It’s a very danceable kind of thing.”

A tribute On Saturday, Dec. 4, Talking Heads tribute band Start Making Sense will appear at ABC with its acclaimed act honoring the popular ’80s band. “(This) is a must-see for any — even fairweather — Talking Heads fan. These guys are just the real deal, they are so indescribably good that

... you’ve got to see it to believe it,” says Van Jura. “We do a handful of tribute bands throughout the year, but if we are going to do a tribute band it’s got to be amazing, and this is no different.” And, speaking of tribute bands, Splintered Sunlight will pay homage to the Grateful Dead for the final show of 2010 on Dec. 17. On Dec. 10, nationally known bluegrass band the Steep Canyon Rangers will appear with Colebrook Road. Although this show does not feature the group’s famous funnyman member, Steve Martin, it’s a musical event not to be missed for any fan of the genre. The Asheville-based group is making waves with its latest record, “Deep In the Shade,” which stayed on the Billboard Bluegrass Top Ten for 18 weeks.

Erica Peterson traded the biggest party night of the year for a little rest and relaxation last night.

Last Call

Biggest party night of the year? Eh. Gobble Gobble. Last night marked the biggest party night of the year, which I never really understood because who wants to eat turkey and gravy hung over? Not this girl. Regardless, my friends partook in the Harrisburg Thanksgiving Bar Tour — five bars, $15 bucks, and a lot of crazy pictures. Trust me — it was hard to say no. They started at Sawyers and made their way to Hardware Bar and Bourbon Street before calling it a night. What can I say? The idea of eight hours of sleep followed by mashed potatoes far outweighed any mixed drink special. If you’re starting your Black Friday shopping at

insanely early hours of the morning tomorrow (sorry, I am a big proponent of Cyber Monday in my PJs), then by 11 a.m. you’ll be ready for a nap — or a Bloody Mary. My neighbor Scott has the best recipe in town. I’m told the secret is something to do with adding celery seed to the mix. In my humble opinion, Bloodys are best when they sit for a day in the fridge, so make yours early. If you’re in for a little kick, add Absolute

Peppar. I can’t compete with my neighbor’s recipe, so instead I’ll just say if you meet anyone named Scott that lives in Midtown, you should friend him immediately. This is the one time I’ll advocate talking to strangers — only because he’s awesome. So I finally checked out Brick City Bar & Grille in Midtown (1313 N. Second St., to be exact). It’s slightly upscale, but then again I’m basing that off it being a block from Shady McGrady’s. The food was decent and reasonably priced, and we got seated immediately. I would say it’s a great first date or catch up with friends restaurant, as there’s ample space to spread out. Plus

membership can be obtained on the spot for $25. While many of the items in the sales gallery are purchased for family members and friends, patrons also enjoy picking up a different kind of gift for clients and as hostess presents, notes Macaluso. And, as always, CALC will be offering gift certificates, which are good toward artwork or classes, the latter being especially popular around the holidays with grandparents who want their grandchildren to be involved with the center, she says. But, in addition to the gifts, the focus of Art for the Holidays is on supporting the talented artists in Carlisle’s own backyard. “Instead of having an exhibit with artists that have gone through a juried process, this is one of two

the vibe is just really chill — which is a lovely break from the house music at the bars further down on Second Street. It may not be the classiest drink ever, but I’ve got to admit it’s good, and it came as a birthday present from my good friend Apes. Smirnoff makes these pre-mixed Cosmopolition and Pomegranete Martinis. I love ’em. I have to add a bit of water to the mix (it can be a wee bit sweet), but if I have friends coming over I’ll just pour it in a fancy pitcher, cut up some limes, break out the martini glasses and *poof* people think I’m a mixologist. ——— As a friendly reminder, please drink responsibly.

Happy Thanksgiving! The winter holiday season truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year. It’s not only because of extra time spent with family and friends or the feelings of goodwill that seem to come with this season. It’s also because there are so many fun things to do. Last weekend, on a whim, I decided to attend the holiday parade in Harrisburg. It has been nearly 20 years since I have been to a parade (not including any that I have been assigned to cover), and I almost forgot about the cheery atmosphere — lively marching bands, persistent souvenir vendors, chilly weather. Being outside at the parade reminded me of the holidays before December meant final exams, end-ofyear stories and Christmas shopping.

This week, I’m going to encourage you to take a break from the holiday preparations to get into the holiday spirit. Visit the Dickens of a Christmas event in downtown Mechanicsburg on Friday, go to the Toys for Tots holiday parade in Carlisle this Saturday or check out Hersheypark’s Christmas Candy Lane. Take in a holiday show, like “A Christmas Carol,” being performed at Open Stage in Harrisburg, or “The Nutcracker,” being staged by the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. — Erica Dolson, Sentinel Reporter

Now in its fifth year, CALC’s annual Art for the Holidays event kicked off last week and continues through Jan. 3, featuring gifts for every taste and budget. “We are trying to promote local artists,” says Sales Gallery and Outreach Coordinator Jean Macaluso. “We have a lot of fantastic artists that you don’t hear about regularly.”

A wonderful life What’s a holiday season without “It’s a Wonderful Life”? Gettysburg Stage is presenting a play by the same name, based on the classic 1946 film starring Jimmy Stewart, Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore. David Hurlbert is directing a cast of 14 actors playing a total of 63 roles in a production conceived as an old radio program, complete with sound effects. Performances will take place on the weekends of Dec. 11-12 and 18-19 in Gettysburg and in two additional locations. For information, visit www.gettysburgstage.org.

Holiday-themed theatrical productions may not start as early as Christmas shopping, but here it is Thanksgiving, and some are already under way or about to begin. Summarized alphabetically by name of theater are some of these productions. Again, as stated last week in the first of this two-part holiday roundup, the list is comprehensive but not complete. If you have additions, please e-mail Lifestyles/ Entertainment Editor April Trotter at atrotter@cumberlink.com or call 240-7137, and visit www.cumberlink. com for part one of the roundup.

“‘The Best Christmas Pageant Ever’ is a gentle reminder that people are able to come together if they just observe and listen to those who don’t necessarily see things the same way they do,” says director Tony Pingitore. “By listening we come to understanding, and by understanding, we come to love.” Once again, in its third annual holiday production, Hershey Area Playhouse lets “the antics of the Herdmans roll over a local Sunday School Christmas pageant, recreating the hysteria of a disaster that never happens,” says Pingitore. The production runs Dec. 2-12, with performances at 7:30 p.m. Thursday to Sunday and 2 p.m. Sundays. Ticket prices are $17 for teens and adults and $14 for kids 12 and under. Call 5338525 for tickets and information.

Just as holidays bring together endearing (and sometimes eccentric) family members, Hershey Area Playhouse, Sand Hill Road Another Nutcracker at Cherry Drive, is bringing back the Herdmans in its “The Nutcracker” with traditional Christmas sea- Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous son production, “The Best score will be danced for the Christmas Pageant Ever.” ninth year in a row by Penn-

sylvania Regional Ballet of Enola. “Rehearsals begin as soon as students start classes in September, and all of our pre-professional division students — ages 6 through 18 — look forward to taking part in the annual production,” says Sandra Carlino, artistic director. “The different parts are actually a rite of passage for our students.” Live music is provided by the Pennsylvania Regional Ballet Orchestra, led by Conductor Gregory Woodbridge. The Capital Youth Chorale, directed by Marina Cherepinsky, will lend vocal talents the Snow Scene at the end of Act I. Mary Elaine DeCavalcante of Camp Hill is the heroine, Clara. Guest artists Martha Chamberlain and Jonathan Stiles will dance the roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier. Performances are held at 2 and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 4 and 2 p.m. Dec. 5 at the Scottish Rite Theatre, 2701 N. Third St., Harrisburg. Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, $15 for students and $10 for children 3-6. Call 732-1974 or visit www. prballet.org.

Santa comes to town Santa Claus is coming to town — and a show by the same name is next at Gamut Theatre. Popcorn Hat Players, southcentral Pennsylvania’s only professional children’s theater and of the two components of Gamut, is presenting a Yuletide tale about how Tinker the Elf helps Santa find his lost bag of toys. Performances are set for Dec. 1-23 at 10:15 a.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays and 1 p.m. Saturdays. There will also be a 10:15 a.m. performance on Dec. 21. Tick-

ets are $7 for adults or children. Make reservations at 238-4111 or online at www. gamutplays.org.

Season staple Another beloved staple of the holiday season is Charles Dickens’s story “A Christmas Carol.” Theater of the Seventh Sister has its own version — adapted and directed by founding member and co-artistic director Gary Smith. The story and play revolve, of course, around the unhappy, miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, who undergoes a transformation after Christmas Eve visits by spirits. The production is very close to the Dickens novella — “with not only his characters, but almost all his poignant narrative intact,” says Smith. “In addition, the way we offer it to the community is completely true to his message as well. The entire run of the show is offered as pay-whatyou-will performances. It runs Dec. 9-30, with Saturday and Sunday matinees. Tickets can be reserved by calling 396-7764 or visiting www.seventhsister.com.

“‘The Best Christmas Pageant Ever’ is a gentle reminder that people are able to come together if they just observe and listen to those who don’t necessarily see things the same way they do,” says director Tony Pingitore. “By listening we come to understanding, and by understanding, we come to love.” Once again, in its third annual holiday production, Hershey Area Playhouse lets “the antics of the Herdmans roll over a local Sunday School Christmas pageant, recreating the hysteria of a disaster that never happens,” says Pingitore. The production runs Dec. 2-12, with performances at 7:30 p.m. Thursday to Sunday and 2 p.m. Sundays. Ticket prices are $17 for teens and adults and $14 for kids 12 and under. Call 5338525 for tickets and information.

Just as holidays bring together endearing (and sometimes eccentric) family members, Hershey Area Playhouse, Sand Hill Road Another Nutcracker at Cherry Drive, is bringing back the Herdmans in its “The Nutcracker” with traditional Christmas sea- Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous son production, “The Best score will be danced for the Christmas Pageant Ever.” ninth year in a row by Penn-

sylvania Regional Ballet of Enola. “Rehearsals begin as soon as students start classes in September, and all of our pre-professional division students — ages 6 through 18 — look forward to taking part in the annual production,” says Sandra Carlino, artistic director. “The different parts are actually a rite of passage for our students.” Live music is provided by the Pennsylvania Regional Ballet Orchestra, led by Conductor Gregory Woodbridge. The Capital Youth Chorale, directed by Marina Cherepinsky, will lend vocal talents the Snow Scene at the end of Act I. Mary Elaine DeCavalcante of Camp Hill is the heroine, Clara. Guest artists Martha Chamberlain and Jonathan Stiles will dance the roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier. Performances are held at 2 and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 4 and 2 p.m. Dec. 5 at the Scottish Rite Theatre, 2701 N. Third St., Harrisburg. Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, $15 for students and $10 for children 3-6. Call 732-1974 or visit www. prballet.org.

Santa comes to town Santa Claus is coming to town — and a show by the same name is next at Gamut Theatre. Popcorn Hat Players, southcentral Pennsylvania’s only professional children’s theater and of the two components of Gamut, is presenting a Yuletide tale about how Tinker the Elf helps Santa find his lost bag of toys. Performances are set for Dec. 1-23 at 10:15 a.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays and 1 p.m. Saturdays. There will also be a 10:15 a.m. performance on Dec. 21. Tick-

ets are $7 for adults or children. Make reservations at 238-4111 or online at www. gamutplays.org.

Season staple Another beloved staple of the holiday season is Charles Dickens’s story “A Christmas Carol.” Theater of the Seventh Sister has its own version — adapted and directed by founding member and co-artistic director Gary Smith. The story and play revolve, of course, around the unhappy, miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, who undergoes a transformation after Christmas Eve visits by spirits. The production is very close to the Dickens novella — “with not only his characters, but almost all his poignant narrative intact,” says Smith. “In addition, the way we offer it to the community is completely true to his message as well. The entire run of the show is offered as pay-whatyou-will performances. It runs Dec. 9-30, with Saturday and Sunday matinees. Tickets can be reserved by calling 396-7764 or visiting www.seventhsister.com.

The biggest bar night of the year has passed, ushering in the holiday party season. And while the Appalachian Brewing Company on Cameron Street hosts its fair share of seasonal soirees, there’s still a full schedule of live music to help local merrymakers kick off the month of December. On Saturday night, Baltimore-based rock and soul quintet The Almighty Senators take the stage with Hexbelt and DJ Geoffro. “That’s a big deal because the Almighty Senators don’t do a whole lot of shows anymore,” says Greenbelt Events owner Mike Van Jura, who handles the ABC music bookings. “And having them and Hexbelt together in Harrisburg will be just a real fun dancing type of night.” On Friday, Dec. 3, reggae band Jah Works returns to notch up the party atmosphere. Also hailing from Baltimore, the band is widely known for its original reggae music as well as its high energy performances. “That will be a lot of fun. They’ve played here three or four times now, and it’s always a good time,” says Van Jura. “It’s a very danceable kind of thing.”

A tribute On Saturday, Dec. 4, Talking Heads tribute band Start Making Sense will appear at ABC with its acclaimed act honoring the popular ’80s band. “(This) is a must-see for any — even fairweather — Talking Heads fan. These guys are just the real deal, they are so indescribably good that

... you’ve got to see it to believe it,” says Van Jura. “We do a handful of tribute bands throughout the year, but if we are going to do a tribute band it’s got to be amazing, and this is no different.” And, speaking of tribute bands, Splintered Sunlight will pay homage to the Grateful Dead for the final show of 2010 on Dec. 17. On Dec. 10, nationally known bluegrass band the Steep Canyon Rangers will appear with Colebrook Road. Although this show does not feature the group’s famous funnyman member, Steve Martin, it’s a musical event not to be missed for any fan of the genre. The Asheville-based group is making waves with its latest record, “Deep In the Shade,” which stayed on the Billboard Bluegrass Top Ten for 18 weeks.

Nudity aside, “Love and Other Drugs” is a sappy, predictable, runof-the-mill Hollywood love story.

LAST CALL | D8

Erica Peterson traded the biggest party night of the year for a little rest and relaxation last night.

Last Call

Biggest party night of the year? Eh. Gobble Gobble. Last night marked the biggest party night of the year, which I never really understood because who wants to eat turkey and gravy hung over? Not this girl. Regardless, my friends partook in the Harrisburg Thanksgiving Bar Tour — five bars, $15 bucks, and a lot of crazy pictures. Trust me — it was hard to say no. They started at Sawyers and made their way to Hardware Bar and Bourbon Street before calling it a night. What can I say? The idea of eight hours of sleep followed by mashed potatoes far outweighed any mixed drink special. If you’re starting your Black Friday shopping at

insanely early hours of the morning tomorrow (sorry, I am a big proponent of Cyber Monday in my PJs), then by 11 a.m. you’ll be ready for a nap — or a Bloody Mary. My neighbor Scott has the best recipe in town. I’m told the secret is something to do with adding celery seed to the mix. In my humble opinion, Bloodys are best when they sit for a day in the fridge, so make yours early. If you’re in for a little kick, add Absolute

Peppar. I can’t compete with my neighbor’s recipe, so instead I’ll just say if you meet anyone named Scott that lives in Midtown, you should friend him immediately. This is the one time I’ll advocate talking to strangers — only because he’s awesome. So I finally checked out Brick City Bar & Grille in Midtown (1313 N. Second St., to be exact). It’s slightly upscale, but then again I’m basing that off it being a block from Shady McGrady’s. The food was decent and reasonably priced, and we got seated immediately. I would say it’s a great first date or catch up with friends restaurant, as there’s ample space to spread out. Plus

membership can be obtained on the spot for $25. While many of the items in the sales gallery are purchased for family members and friends, patrons also enjoy picking up a different kind of gift for clients and as hostess presents, notes Macaluso. And, as always, CALC will be offering gift certificates, which are good toward artwork or classes, the latter being especially popular around the holidays with grandparents who want their grandchildren to be involved with the center, she says. But, in addition to the gifts, the focus of Art for the Holidays is on supporting the talented artists in Carlisle’s own backyard. “Instead of having an exhibit with artists that have gone through a juried process, this is one of two

the vibe is just really chill — which is a lovely break from the house music at the bars further down on Second Street. It may not be the classiest drink ever, but I’ve got to admit it’s good, and it came as a birthday present from my good friend Apes. Smirnoff makes these pre-mixed Cosmopolition and Pomegranete Martinis. I love ’em. I have to add a bit of water to the mix (it can be a wee bit sweet), but if I have friends coming over I’ll just pour it in a fancy pitcher, cut up some limes, break out the martini glasses and *poof* people think I’m a mixologist. ——— As a friendly reminder, please drink responsibly.

Happy Thanksgiving! The winter holiday season truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year. It’s not only because of extra time spent with family and friends or the feelings of goodwill that seem to come with this season. It’s also because there are so many fun things to do. Last weekend, on a whim, I decided to attend the holiday parade in Harrisburg. It has been nearly 20 years since I have been to a parade (not including any that I have been assigned to cover), and I almost forgot about the cheery atmosphere — lively marching bands, persistent souvenir vendors, chilly weather. Being outside at the parade reminded me of the holidays before December meant final exams, end-ofyear stories and Christmas shopping.

This week, I’m going to encourage you to take a break from the holiday preparations to get into the holiday spirit. Visit the Dickens of a Christmas event in downtown Mechanicsburg on Friday, go to the Toys for Tots holiday parade in Carlisle this Saturday or check out Hersheypark’s Christmas Candy Lane. Take in a holiday show, like “A Christmas Carol,” being performed at Open Stage in Harrisburg, or “The Nutcracker,” being staged by the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. — Erica Dolson, Sentinel Reporter

“Burlesque” (PG-13 for sexual content including several suggestive dance routines, partial nudity, language and some thematic material. 116 minutes) HH — A small-town girl with big dreams and a big voice packs up everything she owns in a suitcase, makes her way to Hollywood and wows the world with her talent. But not everyone has her best interest at heart, so she’ll have to cling tight to her values to figure out whom she should trust. And she’ll do it ... in song!

“Faster” (R for violence, some drug use and language. 98 minutes) H — Recent films of revved-up adrenaline are like movies on steroids, and cause some of the same side effects: nausea, stunted growth and probably some liver damage. George Tillman Jr.’s film begins with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s character literally sprinting out of jail, released in a seething rage from a 10-year prison sentence. The movie is in such a hurry that it doesn’t bother to slow down for proper names, instead referring to its main characters as archetypes: Johnson is “Driver,” Billy Bob Thornton is “Cop” and newcomer Oliver Jackson-Cohen is “Killer.” “Love & Other Drugs” (R for strong sexual content, nudity, pervasive language and some drug content. 112 minutes) HH — Despite its dramatic pretenses and far racier sex scenes than the typical studio romance, Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway’s latest is as predictable and sappy as any other run-of-the-mill Hollywood love story. Gyllenhaal and Hathaway, who costarred as an unhappily married couple in “Brokeback Mountain,” this time play the bumpy romance between a hotshot pharmaceutical salesman and a woman with early onset Parkinson’s disease. Co-written by director Edward Zwick, the screenplay shoves the two together awkwardly — and keeps them coming back together even more awkwardly — undermining the easy, genuine sense of affection and passion the stars manage. — Associated Press

Biggest party night of the year? Eh. Gobble Gobble. Last night marked the biggest party night of the year, which I never really understood because who wants to eat turkey and gravy hung over? Not this girl. Regardless, my friends partook in the Harrisburg Thanksgiving Bar Tour — five bars, $15 bucks, and a lot of crazy pictures. Trust me — it was hard to say no. They started at Sawyers and made their way to Hardware Bar and Bourbon Street before calling it a night. What can I say? The idea of eight hours of sleep followed by mashed potatoes far outweighed any mixed drink special. If you’re starting your Black Friday shopping at

insanely early hours of the morning tomorrow (sorry, I am a big proponent of Cyber Monday in my PJs), then by 11 a.m. you’ll be ready for a nap — or a Bloody Mary. My neighbor Scott has the best recipe in town. I’m told the secret is something to do with adding celery seed to the mix. In my humble opinion, Bloodys are best when they sit for a day in the fridge, so make yours early. If you’re in for a little kick, add Absolute

CALC • Continued from D4 membership can be obtained on the spot for $25. While many of the items in the sales gallery are purchased for family members and friends, patrons also enjoy picking up a different kind of gift for clients and as hostess presents, notes Macaluso. And, as always, CALC will be offering gift certificates, which are good toward artwork or classes, the latter being especially popular around the holidays with grandparents who want their grandchildren to be involved with the center, she says. But, in addition to the gifts, the focus of Art for the Holidays is on supporting the talented artists in Carlisle’s own backyard. “Instead of having an exhibit with artists that have gone through a juried process, this is one of two

Peppar. I can’t compete with my neighbor’s recipe, so instead I’ll just say if you meet anyone named Scott that lives in Midtown, you should friend him immediately. This is the one time I’ll advocate talking to strangers — only because he’s awesome. So I finally checked out Brick City Bar & Grille in Midtown (1313 N. Second St., to be exact). It’s slightly upscale, but then again I’m basing that off it being a block from Shady McGrady’s. The food was decent and reasonably priced, and we got seated immediately. I would say it’s a great first date or catch up with friends restaurant, as there’s ample space to spread out. Plus

the vibe is just really chill — which is a lovely break from the house music at the bars further down on Second Street. It may not be the classiest drink ever, but I’ve got to admit it’s good, and it came as a birthday present from my good friend Apes. Smirnoff makes these pre-mixed Cosmopolition and Pomegranete Martinis. I love ’em. I have to add a bit of water to the mix (it can be a wee bit sweet), but if I have friends coming over I’ll just pour it in a fancy pitcher, cut up some limes, break out the martini glasses and *poof* people think I’m a mixologist. ——— As a friendly reminder, please drink responsibly.

Out with Erica Reporter Erica Dolson shares tips for 20-something entertainment that doesn’t involve Second Street.

Happy Thanksgiving! The winter holiday season truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year. It’s not only because of extra time spent with family and friends or the feelings of goodwill that seem to come with this season. It’s also because there are so many fun things to do. Last weekend, on a whim, I decided to attend the holiday parade in Harrisburg. It has been nearly 20 years since I have been to a parade (not including any that I have been assigned to cover), and I almost forgot about the cheery atmosphere — lively marching bands, persistent souvenir vendors, chilly weather. Being outside at the parade reminded me of the holidays before December meant final exams, end-ofyear stories and Christmas shopping.

This week, I’m going to encourage you to take a break from the holiday preparations to get into the holiday spirit. Visit the Dickens of a Christmas event in downtown Mechanicsburg on Friday, go to the Toys for Tots holiday parade in Carlisle this Saturday or check out Hersheypark’s Christmas Candy Lane. Take in a holiday show, like “A Christmas Carol,” being performed at Open Stage in Harrisburg, or “The Nutcracker,” being staged by the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. — Erica Dolson, Sentinel Reporter
