This week's column starts on Wednesday in a galaxy far, far away but also touches down in some familiar locales closer to home, such as the Replay (although, as a friend often notes, the Replay is really not so different from the cantina scene in "Star Wars"). We've also found ...

LarryvilleLife's Picks: McCollum Hall implosion; Franksgiving; Bizarre Bazaar; Culinaria Supper Club; post-holiday rock 'n' roll
Thanksgiving approaches, but there's plenty to do in LFK for those who aren't trekking to parts unknown.

Halloween may be over, but costumes and cosplay are all over this week's installment, which includes an annual comedy treat, a burlesque "hexstravaganza," and a screening of a sci-fi/comedy cult classic.
