They like turkey, too

Though your peers’ talk of travel plans and turkey dinners may have you in a homesick slump, there are ways for you to get your fill of Thanksgiving goodness without even going south of 110th Street.

In Lerner’s Broadway Room from 6 to 7:30 pm this evening, Bhakti Club and Columbia Students for Animal Protection will be hosting a free, vegan Thanksgiving dinner. We’re told they’ll be serving breaded seitan nuggets, BBQ baked tofu, a glazed root veggie roast, cumin mashed potatoes, vegan gravy, a carrot and golden beet salad with cilantro-mint dressing, and a pear and cranberry green salad with raspberry vinaigrette. Nomz!

For Thanksgiving Day meal options, the Office of Residential Programs has got your back. All Columbia students staying in NY for the break are invited to attend a “traditional” Thanksgiving Dinner in Wien Lounge from 4 to 5:30. The menu will feature all the classics: turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, roasted vegetables, candied yams, roasted potatoes, assorted holiday pies and beverages. If the thought of these edibles tickles your fancy, make sure to RSVP by 3 pm today. Seats are limited to 100 attendees, so be quick about it! Email Asha Bartley if the pesky Sundial calendar system gives ya any trouble.

And last, but certainly not least, SIP (of all places!) will be holding an all-day, all-night Potluck Thanksgiving event. In keeping with its six-year tradition of free turkey, they’ll be serving dinner with all the trimmings to anyone who shows up, though they do encourage food contributions of any kind.

If you’re having a free Thanksgiving event that you’d like other Columbia students to attend, let us know in the comments!
