A swarm of 5,000 bees hit London’s Top Shop on Victoria Street this week.

5,000 bees? Were they shopping for a cocktail dress or just hoping to score a deal on a new handbag?

No confirmation on what has drawn the swarm to this particular location, but it appears the seasonal sale had something to do with it.

About.com has compiled a good list of places throughout the U.K. offering Thanksgiving menus this week (and not just the usual turkey and stuffing, but some variations on the theme like Cornish crab macaroni and cheese and pumpkin and ricotta ravioli!) Yum!
