Holidays in New York are perhaps one of the best times to be a New Yorker, but also one of the most stressful. Traveling, cooking, and dealing with in laws can make Thanksgiving feel more daunting than dandy. You work hard all year, so make the most of some time off!
Thankfully, the city has much to offer if you are looking for something out of the ordinary to do to celebrate turkey day:
From feeding the needy at your local soup kitchen or wrapping presents at the nearest hospital, the opportunities are endless. Check out this guide to all the volunteer openings in the city.
Host a friendsgiving
Host a potluck style dinner with all your friends that are keeping it local this holiday. Assign a course to each person, and don’t forget that wine counts as a course.
Replace your recipes for a reservation
Let someone else do the cooking! Check out this list of affordable restaurant options for Thanksgiving day.
Check out the parade
Stick to tradition and head uptown to watch the parade! Bonus points if you can watch it from your friend’s apartment.
It is a holiday after all…why not treat yourself to some turkey sandwiches via Seamless in bed?! We won’t judge.
