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 firstname.lastname@example.org by November 21.
Finally, I’ll soon have a list of other Thanksgiving dinners being held about town.
