Early winter fun and a trip to Philly Mag's best bars

This weekend on FYI Philly, we are thankful for all the fun things to do around town this holiday season. We'll show you three new spots to gather for a friendly get together and round up some of Philadelphia Magazine's picks for the best bars in the area.

As the weather cools down we'll show you a few places to take your sporting activities indoors and some exciting shows coming to local theaters. Plus, we preview the 99th annual 6abc Dunkin' Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade and some locally made essentials for your Thanksgiving feast.
