THE SCRAP EXCHANGE, DURHAM
FRIDAY, NOV. 27
Unless you've got the patience of a saint or you're opting out of the season entirely, the holidays are a stressful time, and they kick into high gear this week. Fortunately, Durham's Scrap Exchange has you covered with a healthier outlet for your post-turkey tension than battling the Black Friday consumer rampage. At the annual Smashfest, you can buy recyclable items for the sole purpose of breaking them—or you can hang out, free of charge, and watch others work out their fractiousness without doing any fracturing yourself. There's music from DJ Piddipat and short film screenings from the A/V Geeks, and the Durham Co-Op Market and Sam's Quik Shop will be on hand with food and drinks. Get smashed.
38 p.m., free, 2050 Chapel Hill Road, Durham, 919-688-6960, www.scrapexchange.org. —Allison Hussey
