Things to do in the Scranton area this weekend

Panksgiving! $5. The thing about Thanksgiving dinner is it’s larger than other dinners — both in the amount of food consumed and the number of people you’re forced to talk to during it. Whatever it is you eat on Nov. 24, go work it off at The Bog’s 341 Adams Ave., Scranton location during the Panksgiving dance party. Festivities begin at 9 p.m. Thanksgiving night. For more information, call 570-341-6761.
