Happy Thanksgiving, from your friends at Oakland North!

on November 24, 2011

We wish you all a safe and plentiful holiday, whether you are racing to the airport or cooking a turkey or already eating pie!

And if you’re in the mood for a little seasonal reading, check out this piece we did about the cultural crossover of the Thanksgiving turkey. Looking for last-minute Thanksgiving recipes? We’ve collected some great ones from our readers! (Plus: a few tips on cooking the perfect bird.) And Hell’s Kitchen winner Rahman “Rock” Harper has a few ideas of his own. Meanwhile city officials already served Thanksgiving dinner to over 2,000 people.

Heading to the airport? You’ll have to decide: To scan, or not to be scanned. And of course, you’ll have to figure out how to get there — check out Oakland North’s Race to the Airport for a few examples of what not to do!
