Your Best Brooklyn Thanksgiving

By November 22, 2009

Follow me on:

The countdown to T-Day has officially begun, and if you're staying in Brooklyn for the holiday, then here are some ideas for Brooklyn-based things to do (and eat). Enjoy!

1) The Feast: It's not too late to place your orders for pies and other baked goods at local bakeries like Baked, One Girl Cookies, Almondine, and Bread Stuy.

If you're going out for Thanksgiving dinner, these Brooklyn restaurants are dishing out holiday prix fixe specials (you'll find everything from a harvest bisque soup made from lobster and nutmeg cream at Magnolia to cornbread stuffing at Dressler and a Latin-inspired menu at Palo Santo).

2) The Pre- and Post-Feast Workouts: Start your Thanksgiving off with a morning run: Brooklyn's annual Turkey Trot, a 5-mile race around Prospect Park, starts at 9am sharp. Or, burn off some of that turkey dinner later in the day with a spin on the ice. Prospect Park's ice skating rink officially opens for the season on Thanksgiving Day.

3) The Day After Shopping Craze: Black Friday sales abound in Brooklyn, and if you're brave enough to face the crowds, then this guide to day-after-Thanksgiving deals and steals will help you get the most bang out of your holiday buck.
