UPDATE: We did a random draw for this one. I asked Ivan Matic of Moment Cafe to witness the process and make the pick, under the watchful of the even helpful Linda.
And the winner is: sarahplusone.
Congratulations to her and thanks to everyone entered and to Switch! Grill for providing the prize. Switch! will have turkey dinner for four straight days at its grill and cafe locations. Check out the menu below if you’re hankering for some turkey.
Got a personal turkey-related story from Beijing? (And, honestly, who doesn’t?) Share it here and get into the draw for a four-course turkey dinner for six people at Switch! Grill — see menu below — from November 22 to November 25.
Maybe it is an anecdote from a past Thanksgiving or Christmas in Beijing. Maybe it is from that Halloween you dressed up as Foghorn Leghorn (yes, he’s a chicken, but I’ll count that). You know what? I’ll even accept entries about Wild Turkey.
This is the fourth straight year I’ve teamed up Debra Lykkemark and Billy Kawaja at Culinary Capers, which owns Switch Grill and Switch Cafe, for a Thanksgiving contest. And this year’s four-course meal includes butternut squash soup, arugula salad with candied hazelnuts, dried cranberries and more, turkey with gravy, stuffing, chutney, potatoes and more, and some fancy pumpkin pie to finish. Both the grill and cafe will have two seatings per day, from November 22 to November 25, at rmb220 per person.
- Leave a comment with your Beijing turkey-related story. All reasonable entries go into the draw.
- Deadline for entries is 6:22 PM on Tuesday, November 20. We will pick the winner that night.
- The winner gets a four-course dinner for six people at Switch! Grill.
- You can enter multiple times — some people have a near-limitless supply of turkey stories — but please leave each entry as a separate comment.
