What to do this weekend

Eat a steaming hot bowl of ramen. Nothing beats a serving of broth and noodles on a cold day. First, track down the best instant ramen (here’s one guide) and then kick things up a notch by adding some extra seasoning and veggies. Here are 6 easy upgrades you can make.

Read the year’s award winners. From the Pulitzer Prize to the Nebula Award, Literary Hub has kindly compiled a handy list of all the winners and nominees of 2023’s major literary awards. If you start reading them all right now you should be done this same time next year. 

Watch Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget on Netflix. The feathered heroines of the 2000 claymation comedy classic are back! This long-gap sequel to a movie beloved by many millennials of a certain age is packed with wackiness and delightfully droll British humour.

Listen to My Fugitive DadThis new podcast from the investigative documentary series Smoke Screen is unlike your typical true crime show. In it, a woman unravels the history of her father, who admitted to her before his death that he was a fugitive for 52 years.—QH
