From delivering Thanksgiving meals to fostering a homeless dog, here are a few ways you can volunteer this holiday season in metro Atlanta.
Let these Atlanta restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day and offering Thanksgiving to-go meals help you feed your family so all that’s left on your to-do list is to be thankful.
Chef Zeb Stevenson, formerly of Watershed, relies on Green Ola Acres’s papaya squash as the foundation of a savory pie that’s perfect for Thanksgiving. Although you can use different varieties for this recipe, papaya squash has the right amount of sweetness, complexity, and water content, and its distinct nuttiness makes it perfect for a pie.
Christmas at Six Flags, a hip-hop take on the Nutcracker, and support black business at Black Friday Fest.
The son of Nigerian immigrants, Steve Osunsami grew up in Peoria, Illinois housing projects eating government cheese. His mother would cook on Sundays, but otherwise it was Shake ’N Bake chicken. Now, Osunsami calls Diane Sawyer, Robin Roberts, and David Muir colleagues—and friends—and he’s afforded himself the ability to celebrate and “pull out all our best liquor!”
No time to cook? Here are several restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day in Atlanta, and several where you can order turkey and sides to-go before the big meal.
There are health benefits to varying your poultry routine throughout the year. Turkey could almost be considered a superfood: It’s packed with protein, low in fat, and contains iron, vitamins B6 and B12, niacin, and zinc. But the market for turkey that’s not ground is slim after the holidays.
I don't believe in waiting for Thanksgiving to eat roast turkey when plenty of places around Atlanta serve it year-round. You can even get a whole turkey dinner with all the trimmings (pumpkin pie included) on a random Tuesday if you're feeling festive, which is a reason to give thanks even if it is still pool weather.
For many, it’s their biggest meal of the year. Where will you eat on Thanksgiving Day? Check out these top-notch options.
