    I recall Bourbon Street (http://www.bourbonstbkk.com/) in Washington Sq having a Thanksgiving Day dinner. Did not see anything mentioned on their web page though. Might want to give them a call.

    ^^^It's a day to celebrate the bounty of America - wild turkeys and such. And to thank the Native Americans for teaching us former Brits how to grow corn, squash, etc in our new country - and for doing it before we slaughtered them.

    yup, Johnny and Jack didn't think too much of Wild Turkey getting all the attention.

    Thanksgiving Day is a festive day in America and claims the highest volumn of travel period in the US, even more so than Christmas and New Years.

    Back on the East Coast in Pennsylvania, the Monday after Thanksgiving Day marks the first day of buck hunting season (with rifle as muzzle and archery seasons have already taken place). Most of the schools are closed on Monday as a result of low attendance resulting from all the young lads out hunting. A wonderful time of year with the leaves in color, a cool breeze, and clear blue skies. Yes, a lot to be thankful for.

    Here is a review of last years Thanksgiving meal at Bourbon St.

    1. Bourbon Street Restaurant

    From noon to 10pm on Thursday, Bourbon Street Restaurant has a Thanksgiving buffet on for 899 baht per adult, 499 per child under 12. Now this is the place you want to go if you’re up a feast that will require you to undo the button on your pants afterwards.
    The list of dishes is huge, too huge to list here, but hightlights include cured salmon, Italian cheese sausage, shrimp au gratin, crab cakes, fish Florentine, shrimp bisque, gumbo with turkey, fried mozzarella sticks, potato skins, prime roast ribs, lamb chops, jambalaya, baked Virginia ham, roast beef in gravy, mashed potatoes in gravy, and, best of all, U.S. Butterball Cajun deep fried and roast turkey. And then there’s dessert.

    ^Was in Bourbon Street a week or two back for their Tuesday??? (B300++) all you can eat Mexican night.
    Can't comment about their Thanks Giving dinner but if what they served on Tuesdays is anything to go by, then I am sure it will be worth it.
    B.T.W. This isn't a wind-up post for that Diatronic dude to call me an idiot. The mexican night must have over 20 plus items including starters, mains and deserts with an array of sauces and the like to gorge yourself on.
    Can anyone comment here on what they reckon about Bourbon St? Don't wanna highjack the thread but it may help the OP if you guys give an honest opinion about the place.
    Black diamonds? I shit 'em.

    Pretty well sums it up. Always held last Thursday of November. Can be confusing as date changes year to year. This year 25th.

    ^Not trying to be a wise guy, but it's the fourth Thursday in November, not the last Thursday. Any yes the feast at Bourbon Street Inn is well worth the price.

    Memory might be fading, most leaves are long gone by then.

    Some schools in the mountains may be closed, but not most.

    Possibly in New England the leaves may be off the tree by then but in Pa, Va, and DC area it is not unusual for many leaves to be still on the tress and still falling. Something about the amount of rain received during the summer. Could be an old wives tale but still some leaves on some of the trees. none the less a beautiful time of year.

    OK, with most being 50% or more, it might be that the term many may better describe the number of schools that are off on the Monday after Thanksgiving but, with the point of reference made as being Pa, and with much of Pa being mountainous, I't could still be that it is most of the schools are off the
    Monday after Tday. Not worth worrying about because it remains that at least many of the schools are off.... Unless one is in the metro areas of Phila or Pitt.

    And Black Friday is a grateful time for the merchants, too (usually).

    For a cheap & cheerful, if you're close, Foodland did a little option last year for 2 or 3 days, for around 200 baht - nothing to write home about, but just to let you know...

    Bourbon Street

    There is a very long line at Bourbon and you will have to wait for a table. That is the only thing that makes it not worth going.

    Went to Great American Ribs Soi 36
    Londoner
    Sofitel Central Lad Prao
    PathumWan Princess
    The Hotel in Fortune Towers
    All had enjoyable dinners

    Would not recommend King Power or Amari Airport
    Would love to go somewhere new this year.

    Tried ASB dinner earlier this month, but the line was very long and they did not know how to hand out the dinners.

    AMCHAM is having one on 24 Nov

    Good luck.

    I had that buffet at Bourbon Street last night and it's easily hands down the best buffet I've ever seen.

    Well worth the wait.

    I haven't stuffed myself like that for ages. Kinda hurt a bit after.

    They only do it for two nights. Nov 25th and 26th.

    It really is something to behold, food quality tip-top, like I said I've never seen a better one. Likely the best ever.

    Not if you're a deer. Or a turkey.

    It's a happy day, and everyone gorges themself- thats the tradition.
