Wednesday, Nov. 2, join the chefs at Culinary Underground School for Home Cooks, 21 Turnpike Rd., Southborough, for a special holiday workshop. “Thanksgiving Entrees for Vegetarians” is for those who – though they are legion these days – are often the afterthought on Thanksgiving. At CU, there are great entrees this year that are both upscale and scrumptious, and, with a few tweaks, you can even make them completely vegan. Also, much of the entrees are do-ahead, so you can enjoy your guests and the football game, too. The workshop will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m., and the cost is $75 per person.

When asked to donate money at a recent fund-raiser for cancer research, Mark Silverman, president and CEO of Mark's Moving & Storage and a prime agent for Arpin Van Lines, happily wrote a check for $1,000.
