(Updated at 6:15 p.m.) ARLnow.com wishes you and yours a happy Thanksgiving weekend.

Except for regularly-scheduled features and breaking news, we will be not be publishing for the remainder of the weekend.

For those who are staying in town and participating in the traditional post-Thanksgiving shopping bonanza, the Pentagon City mall has announced its extended holiday weekend hours:

  • Thanksgiving: 6-11 p.m.
  • Black Friday: 7 a.m.-9:30 p.m.
  • Saturday: 10 a.m.-9:30 p.m.
  • Sunday: 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

Don’t forget that Saturday is Small Business Saturday — which reminds us to support local, independent retailers this holiday season.

Speaking of mixing holiday cheer and altruism with commerce, the charity-oriented Christmas tree sales around Arlington start this weekend, and on Tuesday Shirlington shopping center is holding its annual Light Up the Village event.

If you’re going to be driving around Thanksgiving day, keep in mind that the annual Turkey Trot 5K will be closing roads in Lyon Park until around 10 a.m.

With that, feel free to use the comment section of this post to discuss any issue or news item of local interest this holiday weekend.

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.

On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.

On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
