Hey, that’s not a turkey! Slice into a different sort of PIE. When you’re tired of Thanksgiving leftovers, bring the fam to Mellow Mushroom for specialty pizzas, tempting appetizers, hoagies, salads, or calzones. (They’re closed today but open tomorrow!) Enjoy letting somebody else do the dishes for a change. Kick back on their heated patio and overlook the hustle and bustle of Decatur’s West Ponce retail district – with a pint of craft beer or a crafted cocktail in hand. Take 20 percent off of your ‘for-here’ food purchase when you drop in on Terrific Thursdays in December!

Brace yourself… for the holiday shop-splosion that is Sq/Ft! Their surprising stash of yuletide inventory makes the season bright – never boring. Fill Santa-approved sackfuls with hand-spun hipster ornaments, candy-cane striped knee-highs, disco ball tree toppers, festive felted garland, and oh-so-much more. Get your gift list out and check it twice. Shop Sq/Ft’s BLACK FRIDAY SALE and take 30% off the whole shop from 9 to 10 a.m. (with more deals throughout the day). That’s hip home goods, gifts galore, eye-catching coffee table books, snarky stationery, and stand-out accessories and apparel for men and women. They’ve got something for everyone (…or is it ‘a bunch of things for myself’?)
