‘Tis the season for gathering with family and friends to give thanks.
Whether you plan a big meal at home, choose a local restaurant that serves a traditional Thanksgiving feast, or order the whole shebang to go, Coral Gables is the place to be for this holiday celebration.
The calendar is ripe with festivities. I’m working my old fingers to the bone trying to keep up with the overwhelming depth and breadth of upcoming fetes and cultural opportunities.
The tree lighting ceremonies, the holiday movies, outstanding live theatre, special musical events, book signings and lectures, family time with the kids, the Harry Potter movie marathon… the list goes on.
From our family to yours, we wish you all the best this happy holiday season and hope you find the following list of Great Gables Events to be interesting, informative and entertaining.

Lady Bird at Gables Cinema
An ideally cast Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn), plays Christine McPherson, a Sacramento teenager stumbling through her senior year. Having given herself an aspirational, creative new identity — Lady Bird — Christine rails, though sometimes just pouts and frets, about conformity, the world and her family, especially her mother (a touching Laurie Metcalf). It’s the perfect mother-daughter flick. Coral Gables Art Cinema is located at 260 Aragon. Call 786-385-9689 or visit the web site for details. http://www.gablescinema.org
