Weekend’s Best Bets in Falls Church

See what’s going on in Falls Church over Thanksgiving weekend

If you're stuck in a food coma after your Thanksgiving Day feast, relax in the Little City with a trip to Stifel & Capra to meet November visiting artist Kathleen McFall and for a Black Friday brunch or head to Red, White & Bleu's tasting room on Sunday afternoon. For those looking to get into the holiday spirit, see the Classical Ballet Theatre of Northern Virginia's production of The Nutcracker in Annandale. And if you're up for a night out, head to the State Theatre for a blues rock show or to Signature Theatre for a performance of Dying City.
