I'm not much of a parade super fan, but I will turn on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade at some point during the holiday morning. Mostly I'm hoping to catch a number from a Broadway show. Looks like this year's parade will offer scenes from the Tony Award-winning musical "Dear Evan Hansen," along with "Anastasia," "Once on This Island" and "SpongeBob Square-Pants, The Broadway Musical." This year's 91st annual shindig will be hosted by Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker. It starts at 9 a.m. Thursday on NBC. - Jennifer Mulson
Serendipity brought me to tour New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins on the day of the release of La Folie Grand Reserve Geisha coffee sour. The brewery's ($48) 750-ml bottles sold out in just two hours to a long line of customers. But the Geisha, with 7.9 percent alcohol by volume, was on tap at $12 a pour - and worth it. The gorgeous color is thanks to a special Ethiopian coffee bean, and the taste, on nitro, was very smooth. Floral and citrus notes blend with New Belgium's La Folie sour brown ale to create this delicious treat for sour lovers, at retailers mid-November.
