Happy Thanksgiving! Lauren sent the photo, wanting to reassure fans of The West Seattle Turkey that it’s alive and well. As usual, we’re starting the holiday with information we hope will be helpful:
GROCERY STORES OPEN TODAY: This list is also in the Thanksgiving section atop our Holiday Guide.
RESTAURANTS (AND BARS-WITH-FOOD) OPEN TODAY AND/OR TONIGHT: Here’s the list; please remember that it is a list of who told us, when we asked, that they planned to be open – so it’s always subject to last-minute change without notice to us. Please let us know if you find discrepancies – thank you!
PRE-TURKEY EXERCISE : Three options this morning, indoor and outdoor, also in the Thanksgiving section atop the Holiday Guide.
WHERE TO FIND A FREE COMMUNITY THANKSGIVING DINNER: Three options this year, everyone welcome:
*The Hall at Fauntleroy, noon-3 pm (9131 California SW)
*West Seattle Eagles, 2 pm-5 pm (4426 California SW)
*Admiral Pub, free “Friendsgiving” buffet starts at 5 pm (2306 California SW)
WANT TO HELP? You can donate a dessert to The Hall at Fauntleroy’s dinner – such as a pie or cookies – dropoffs are welcome before 12 pm, same address as above (south end of the historic schoolhouse). You can let them know you’re bringing one (or more) by registering here – or just drop it off.
