A knock off: Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman

I find this very amusing. Don't be fooled, it's not an authentic Charles & Ray Eames Lounge chair... it's a poser. An original will cost you about $4110 (via MoMA store).
Disclaimer: "This item is not an original Charles & Ray Eames Lounge chair, nor is it manufactured by or affiliated with Herman Miller."

Before heading to the Mohawk for the Bleet-Up, I'd recommend visiting Whole Foods for their annual Taste of Thanksgiving event. It's from 6-8:30 at the Lamar location and features free tasting of the holiday menu. A description of the event:
It's time for our annual feast, the Taste of Thanksgiving!  Join us for an elegant evening as we welcome the fall harvest and present our newest holiday menu!  Stroll through the store and taste all the fabulous flavors of fall.  It's our biggest event of the year so you don't want to miss it!
From prepared foods and bakery to wine, each department across the store will be sampling delicious seasonal fare so bring your appetite, grab a plate and explore the flavors of the holidays.  Imagine serving a classic turkey dinner with wild mushroom and sage gravy, cinnamon-dusted butternut squash, cranberry-mandarin orange relish, and handmade, fresh baked pies without spending a minute in the kitchen!  Now that's something to be grateful for.
