If you don't want to cook on your Thanksgiving holiday, here are two options: one for vegans, one for traditionalists.

For Traditionalists

The Heathman is having their annual Thanksgiving dinner, with food by Chef Philippe Boulot. Boulot and crew are offering both a prix fixe menu and a grand buffet for diners, both $46.50 per person ($18 for children under 12). Considering how much you might spend making dinner for your friends and family, it could conceivably be cheaper to say "fuck it" and take a date to the Heathman for Turkey Day.

For vegans

Northwest VEG and Proper Eats Café are sponsoring their annual "Compassionate Thanksgiving Dinner," November 23, at the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Beaverton. Yes, Virginia, there are better options than Tofurkey. All attendees will receive a free chocolate bar from Theo Chocolate. Pre-register at nwveg.org. There is a $5 fee.

Also, there are plenty of free dinners next Thursday for the neediest. Why not find one and help out? It'll warm you up better than a bowl of stuffing and a football game, I guarantee that. Visit handsonportland.org for a list of holiday volunteer opportunities.
