Saturday: The weekend after Thanksgiving tends to be a sluggish one. You've pigged out on food, exhausted yourself with family time, and now you've got three days to veg out, with very few entertainment options, because apparently everyone else is just lying on their couch, too. Luckily, there's Walker Art Center's "Choreographers' Evening." This annual post-Thanksgiving tradition is a great chance to check out locally made dances, curated by someone from the community. This year, it's dancer/choreographer Justin Jones, who has picked a selection of exciting newcomers — including Ea Eckwall, the elementary-school-aged daughter of Hijack's Arwen Wilder and her partner, lighting designer Heidi Eckwall — as well as choreographers who've been around for a minute but want to try something new, such as Jeffrey Wells, known for his work with Supergroup. (7 & 9:30 p.m. Sat., Walker Art Center, 1750 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls. $25. 612-375-7600 or
