It’s Thanksgiving week—do you know how you’re cooking your turkey? Luckily you still have time to figure it out before Thursday. If you’ve got free time on your hands, there’s plenty to do this week before (and after) the holiday. New York City never disappoints, and we’re thankful for it as always. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! See below for this week’s social agenda.
California has been hit by a slew of devastating wildfires, with Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino being particularly affected. Tonight, join Winemakers & Sommeliers for California Wildfire Relief (WSCWR) to do something to help those affected. Head to Tribeca Grill for a special wine tasting event ($50) from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. that will help benefit wildfire victims. We can’t think of a better way to start the week than drinking for a good cause. Tribeca Grill, 375 Greenwich Street
City Winery is known for its impressive selection of wines, but tonight it’s all about beer. At the City Winery Beer Pop-Up Festive-ALE, Radeberger, Lagunitas, and Harpoon Brewery are coming together to showcase their new releases. Vote for your favorite brew, enjoy a variety of appetizers, and hang with your friends. Sounds like a good Tuesday night to us. Tickets are $29. City Winery, 155 Varick St.
With Thanksgiving tomorrow, you’ve probably got some last-minute food shopping to do. If you’re still in need of some dessert and you don’t feel like baking, head to Grand Central’s one-day-only Thanksgiving Market, where you can buy sweet treats from five Grand Central dessert shops and bakeries, including Magnolia Bakery and Jacques Torres Chocolate. Live music will also be provided to get you in the holiday spirit. Grand Central Terminal, 89 East 42nd Street, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Happy Thanksgiving! If you’re not spending the holiday at a friend or family member’s house but still want to treat yourself to turkey, mashed potatoes, and other festive foods, don’t worry. There are plenty of restaurants in NYC hosting Thanksgiving dinner today. Haven Rooftop is offering a $65 prix fixe menu, featuring delicious dishes like turkey, butternut squash soup, and pumpkin spice cheesecake. And the Cupping Room Cafe is serving up a four-course meal for $60 with options like goat cheese crostini, roasted turkey, candied fingerling sweet potatoes, and pie.
