This Thanksgiving weekend, let the holiday shopping operate like a
Choose Your Own Adventure book. Will you (a) Spend the early waking hours of Black Friday at the bottom of a sweaty dogpile stuck in the automatic doorway to Wal-Mart or will you (b) Sleep in and spend the day plotting handmade projects, kitschy presents and gifts made with little funds but plenty of L-O-V-E? If you chose option A then stop reading now, theres no hope for you. Option B? Move along and head to Undergrounds Coffeehaus for a craft fair today. Local crafters will set up shop from 4 to 7 p.m. showcasing homemade gifts, jewelry, art and the like. Theres no cover to peruse. Stay late for the legendary caffeine-fueled stitch-n-bitch sit-in (it's their one year anniversary) thatll go until 1 a.m. Consider it a marathon jam session for crafty folks. Bring glue guns and glitter. Snacks, movies and music will be provided at 2743 East Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-630-1900 or visit myspace.com/undergroundscoffeehaus.
