Longtable Series at the Irish Heather Take a seat at a 40 foot communal table that brings friends—old and new—together in an inimate setting. Their Sunday night seating has sold out, but you can still snap up some tickets for Monday night. Check website for reservation details.
Big Lou's Butcher Shop: Pre-order a dinner to go for $130 (feeds 5-8) or $225 (feeds 10-12). Full dinners include a choice of either Fraser Valley Organic Turkey or Fraser Valley Smoked Organic Ham with Italian sausage stuffing and a variety of sides (pomme puree, seasonal carrots, beets, brussel sprouts, gravy, and cranberry jelly).
Prix Fixe Menus: Make a reservation at one of the following hotel restaurants for a multi-course, traditional Thanksgiving dinner: Griffins at the Hotel Vancouver, Bacchus at the Wedgewood Hotel, Yew at the Four Seasons or Fleuri at the Sutton Place Hotel.
Get outside (and snap out of the turkey haze): Granville Island's Turkey Trot, a 10K run/walk/waddle, starts at noon on Monday. The $45 entry fee supports the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
