Switch Up Thanksgiving Dinner With These Turkey Alternatives
Not a huge fan of the big bird on Thanksgiving? Local alternative meals to chow down minus the turkey.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Sometimes, bird is not the word. I know, I know, the turkey reigns supreme on Thanksgiving but fried, lasered or baked – I can live without it. If you find yourself in this same gravy boat, you’re in luck. We’ve selected a few alternatives to the traditional turkey feast this holiday.
Pescatarian? Shell out for some shellfish from Mr. Seafood! Order a seafood party tray which comes in 5 different sizes. Hey, get wild and try all 5. Why not? It’s 2020. Go nuts.
– You can order them plain and sauce them at home yourself if you want
– They are taking pre orders for pick up on Wednesday
Veggie vibes? Take your tastebuds on a trip to Ethiopia at Abugida. Their flavorful vegetarian feast is filling and loaded with variety. Bonus points: you eat with your hands using the spongey sour dough injera bread… so less dishes!
The vegetarian feast features: Red lentils, Collard greens, Cabbage and carrots, Potato and carrots, Brown lentils, Chick peas & Injera bread *meat dishes are available for omnivores*
Plant based pilgrims – sample the soul food goodness of Chef Joya. You can place your preorders until Monday with delivery available. On the menu:
– Not your mama’s meat loaf
– baked Mac n Cheez

Craving a turkey meal but not the price tag? The generous folks at Moo & Brew are hosting a “Pay What You Can” Thanksgiving dinner. They’ll be serving a traditional turkey dinner with fixins starting at noon. They will have approximately 100 meals that will be served in a socially-distanced setting on their outdoor patios. Service will be offered from our take out window. “The meal will be pay what you can so no amount is too small so that everyone can enjoy a meal until the food runs out.”
