Gobble, gobble II: Win a free Thanksgiving turkey dinner and wine

Note: The deadline for entering the contest is Tuesday, November 3, at 5 PM.

Thanksgiving, the U.S. edition, is just around the corner and I am running a repeat of  last year’s contest. To enter, let us know one thing that happened in Beijing over the past year for which you are thankful. It could be anything from the opening of line four to the RMB20 happy hour drinks at Fubar to finding the love of your life in our fair city.

One comment will be drawn as the winner. The prize: a whole turkey dinner for takeout courtesy of Culinary Capers and a bottle each of Yarrabank Cuvee 2004 (more here) and Yering Station E.D. Pinot Noir 2005, courtesy of The Wine Republic.

By the way, for those seeking Thanksgiving sustenance, Culinary Capers will serve up turkey dinners on November 26 at the Guanghua Lu branch of Sequoia Cafe (map). Along with bird, the menu features butternut squash soup, roasted vegetables with maple butter and thyme, stuffing with cranberry, chutney, celery, onion, and apple, and Grand Marnier and pumpkin seed brittle, and more (see full menu).

There are two seatings - 6 PM to 8 PM and 8:30 PM on – at RMB188 per person. Individual turkey dinners (RMB138) and whole turkey dinners (RMB850) are available for pickup from 3 PM to 6 PM. To reserve a spot, or a take-out bird, contact Jenny at 6532-5905 or jenny.zheng.cccintl@gmail.com by November 21.

Finally, I’ll soon have a list of other Thanksgiving dinners being held about town.

  1. Plain, simple and honestly; I am grateful for my wife and all the support she’s given me in the past year. I am one lucky man… :)

  2. There’s a lot to be thankful for, living in Beijing… good friends, great restaurants, yang rou chuan’r, National Day being over… the list goes on…

    HOWEVER, there is one thing that I am grateful for, on a daily basis, that would make living in one of the world’s most vibrant, exciting, fast-moving countries like living on a freaking barb-wired island:

    My VPN.

    God bless you, VPN. I give thanks and praise to thee.

  3. thankful that we don’t have to sit on the plane anymore for another hour after landing, waiting for masked health inspectors to take your temperature. for now, at least… (knock on wood)

  4. I’m thankful for 250+ “blue sky” days, a growing extra-SLT bar scene and a new gig as a food writer. Living the dream in the ‘jing.

  5. solana opening: beijing desperately needed a faux outdoor californian mall and i am grateful that it all came together on my watch. Whether its enjoying the refreshing nighttime breeze in late February, rollin like a serious money flasher/ p-diddy wannabee at bling or hanging at the best restaurant in asia, all star, it doesnt get any better for me than than this retail riviera of the east

  6. A recent trip back home has made me thankful for the choice of budget in Beijing – from super cheap beers, taxis and groceries to all the fine-dining and flash clubs around.

  7. plenty to be thankful for both as far as my professional and personal lives go.. but in terms of Beijing, I’m thankful for the improved array of choices available and H&M finally opening.

  8. I’m thankful for Twitter and all of the great friends I’ve made in Beijing because of it. Traveling to China for research no longer has to be a lonely experience.

  9. I am thankful for the Bird’s Nest. It will really come in handy if the Weather Service Administration ever engineers a hurricane in Beijing and 90,000 people need a place to sleep.
