I have always been quite impressed with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It is amaz­ing how so many peo­ple come together to see the floats and enter­tain­ment. If you are inter­ested in join­ing the crowd, visit this link to the parade route map and the best loca­tions to watch. I often think of run­ning into the city with the girls to watch the bal­loon blow up on Thanksgiving Eve, but tend to get put off by the cold weather. Maybe next year…

Are you look­ing for some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent for Thanksgiving? Our friend, Chef Anthony Pino, sug­gests using a clas­sic Italian dish with a fes­tive makeover. Try his Turkey Porchetta recipe with cau­li­flower au gratin; your guests will love it!

It you want to take a year off from prepar­ing this year’s Thanksgiving feast, Chef Pino’s restau­rant, Anthony David’s, can pre­pare your turkey and all the trim­mings. Sounds like a fab­u­lous idea.

It’s fun to go into the city and see a show this time of year, and we have plans to watch sev­eral over the next few weeks. We are all lucky to live so close to New York City. Here is a list of shows play­ing on Broadway– get there early, grab a hot choco­late and enjoy New York City dressed up for the holiday.
