DJ Studebaker Hawk • Saturday

Let’s face it — Thursday and Friday night’s activities (and workouts) will likely be lost to a tryptophan-induced food coma. Turkey dinners will become leftover turkey sandwiches for lunch and come 8 p.m. Friday evening it will be a struggle to get our still-bloated bodies out and about. But come Saturday, we’ll need to get moving and grooving. You can fulfill that need over at the Platform Sports Bar’s dance space in Northampton, where Studebaker Hawk will be mixing beats starting at 10 p.m. — Amanda Drane


Stephen Petegorsky Photographs • Through Sunday

Displayed on the walls of the eccentric A.P.E. Ltd. Gallery in Northampton, rests Stephen Petegorsky’s Photographs. Known for his black and white landscapes, Polaroid emulsion lifted onto panels covered with gold leaf — and my favorite — making taxidermed animals beautiful even in death. Petegorsky’s creative work has been on display since the beginning of November and there’s only a few days left to transfix your eyes. 126 Main Street, Northampton. — Jennifer Levesque


Third Annual Mustachio Baschio • Saturday

Beard competition! If that didn’t sell you, I’ll elaborate: The Still Bar & Grill in Agawam is hosting a beard contest in coordination with The Movember Foundation and The Western Mass Whiskers Association to raise money for men affected by prostate or testicular cancer. The evening will include several contests: best beard/mustache, with amateur and pro divisions; and a women’s contest with real or crafted beards/mustaches. Prizes include a $400 poker table, gift cards, a shot chiller machine and more. The night culminates with a date auction of eligible bearded men. Saturday, Nov. 28, 8 p.m., The Still Bar & Grill, 858 Suffield St. (Route 75), Agawam, (413) 304-2795. — Kristin Palpini
