If you're over the Turkey Day food hangover and ready to get out and about this weekend, here's a few suggestions. As always, leave comments here, tweet @alex_garrison or email firstname.lastname@example.org with anything I might have missed.
This new exhibit features artifacts showing the self-reliance and community spirits present in Douglas County, including reminders of Works Progress Administration projects.
It opened this week, runs until January and is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the community building, 1047 Mass. Entrance is free.
Always a big, big deal to Lawrence's crafters, the Bizarre Bazaar is a show with about 150 vendors, held near Thanksgiving. This year, it's from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Arts Center, 940 Mass. (Here's my story on last year's event: Quirky crafts, adorned art abound at shows.)
Another Lawrence holiday tradition, carolers will be out for the lighting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Friday near Ninth and Mass streets.
A bit of an eclectic lineup, but one with a punk vibe, it's a tour kickoff night for Dry Bonnet. Catch them all, starting at 10 p.m., for a $3 cover.
The traditional holiday sale for the art-school non-profit will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 715 N.J.

J-Pot seems to be doing what it can to keep regular hip-hop a thing in downtown venues. KC-based collective Winner's Circle will perform there again, starting at 10 p.m. $5 for 21+, $8 for 18-21.
