Burn off some of that turkey and pie by heading to one of our picks for the best eating, drinking, and merrymaking events this weekend. Here’s what to do and when to do it. By Jessica Allen.

Kick off the countdown until Christmas by heading to the world’s largest theme park for its annual Holiday in the Park, featuring seasonal snacks (such as spiked eggnog and peppermint and mocha fudge), live entertainment, Santa’s village, and more than one million lights. Kids can even meet a real reindeer, spend storytime with Mrs. Claus, visit the Poinsettia Princess, walk through Snowman City, and boogie til they’re dizzy at the Gumdrop Hop Dance Party. Weekends and select days through January 3, admission starts at $39.99.

Asking the tough questions this Thanksgiving, BAM wonders “folly or misunderstood masterpiece?” about such movies as Showgirls, Dune, and Heaven’s Gate. Generally considered to be “box office bombs and films maudits, [these movies] . . . flopped on their original release but . . . [seem to] grow more fascinating each year.” Grab some popcorn, settle in, and see whether you think the film deserves such re-evaluation and attention, or whether you think it still stinks. Now through Sunday, November 29, see schedule for details, tickets required.

Skip Black Friday and start your holiday shopping on Saturday or Sunday by heading to the third annual Brooklyn Holiday Bazaar. Curated and hosted by Brooklyn Makers, an organization dedicated to showcasing “the work of local entrepreneurs,” this event brings together more than 40 local craftspeople. Throw your eye around and see what you like, then have a chat with the very person who made it. Sounds far more meaningful than buying a gift card. Saturday, November 28, and Sunday, November 29, 11 am to 6 pm, free.

Every year over Thanksgiving weekend, folk legend Arlo Guthrie, backed by his band, plays a concert at Carnegie Hall. This year’s concert celebrates the 50th anniversary of Alice’s Restaurant, and will feature his signature blend of comedic asides, commentary, satire, song and spirit. It also includes the first full-length performance of “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” in a decade. As he notes on Facebook, Arlo was “born with a guitar in one hand and a harmonica in the other.” Saturday, November 28, 8 pm, tickets start at $15.

Test your knowledge of Sir Galahad the Pure, Patsy, Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot, and Sir Not-appearing-in-this-film by attending a screening and quote-a-long of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Which knights say nil? What kind of wound is it? Who’s a witch? What the heck’s wrong with that rabbit? If these questions mean nothing to you, we recommend you join a team, rather than playing for yourself. Saturday, November 28, 9:30 pm, $10, tickets required.
