Thanksgiving dinner with friends and strangers at The Irish Heather

Maybe you already have plans for Thanksgiving, or maybe you don't. Or maybe your dinner is on Sunday and the glutton in you wants one on Monday, too. Whatever the case The Irish Heather wants to share the upcoming holiday with you. 
In their typical Sunday to Wednesday manner the team is hosting long table dinners with two specialty dinners in a traditional Thanksgiving theme.
On Sunday October 7th and Monday October 8th, they will be offering the full meal deal, including sumptuous roast turkey with stuffing, Okanagan cherry relish, maple glazed sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts, all hand-crafted by Executive Chef Paul Haldane.The meal will be paired with the signature French import, Kronenbourg Blanc, a fruity wheat beer with citrus notes.

With all these "Lonely in Vancouver" and "Social Isolation" articles floating around our fine city, why not prove society otherwise and gather together for Thanksgiving dinner?
If there's any time to do it, it's during the holidays, and for a small price for a full spread of food, it's hard to go wrong. No dishes, no cooking, just eating and mingling. Since the table you dine at is a 40 foot "communal" table it's hard not to chat with the person across you, diagonal from you or beside you, even if you came with a friend. As they say, "You may not know the folks beside you, but you will within 10 minutes."

Thanksgiving dinner will be served at 7:00pm and is priced at $18 (plus taxes and gratuities). For reservations please email [email protected]. Vegetarian options are available.
