(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.
