As much as I'd like the holidays to be done and over with for another year (all that I'll say is that it's been a looong couple of weeks), they aren't. I know that, because our Get Out of Town! issue heralds the coming of Christmas in a little more than a week, not the end of anything.
Meanwhile, I have barely started my Christmas shopping (although one purchase was $80 worth of marzipan--don't ask). Most of the gifts I give this year will be Arrested Development DVDs, as part of a personal, doomed-to-fail grassroots effort to save the best TV sitcom ever.
But I digress. Anyway, whether your holiday season has sucked, or whether it has been sensational, I hope this week's issue will brighten your outlook. It's always fun to kick cretins out of town (even if they never actually leave), and we hope you enjoy this year's edition. Then you can get in the holiday spirit with Stephen Seigel, that wacky, Christmas-loving Jew, as he does his annual holiday album recap in Music. And if you are hungry, John Peck has some fowl for you to check out in Chow.
There's a lot more stuff worth noting, but I think I'll shut up now. There's soy nog (with ample quantities of brandy) calling my name, and I wouldn't want to miss that.
