I don't know what anyone else is doing for Thanksgiving, but here's an idea if anyone doesn't have any plans. Since 1994, every Thanksgiving (as well as Christmas, but I'll get to that one later) I cook up a 20pound turkey, 10pounds of REAL mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, and beverages. Everyone who I like has an invitation. That happens to include this group. The idea is to just have a good time and be among decent people. This is an all ages thing. My friends who have kids bring them. My friends who don't have kids, bring their dates or whatever. There is drinking, but not to excess. I usually finish cooking between 5pm and 6pm. People are welcome to show up anywhere from Noon (while I'm still cooking) until 2am or whenever I pass out the next morning. The reason for this is that many of my friends wind up having to work on Thanksgiving and some of them have some VERY screwed up shifts. Especially those in the healthcare field. Just because they're stuck working on a Holiday doesn't mean that they can't have a good meal and a good time. EDIT: These little get-togethers of mine have also proven themselves helpful in the past to people who had to endure time with their families and needed to relax after. If you're interested, then considder yourself invited. PM me if you need directions. By the way, PM me if you think you might show up. It would probably be a good idea if I had an idea of how many people might be attending.
