“My father was a stern man. He forbade us to participate in any activities that he thought were associated with the common man. The Thanksgiving Day Parade was first on the list.” If you’re a Seinfeld fan, show off your knowledge at Slattery’s Midtown pub for their “Seinfeld Thanksgiving Trivia.” You can prepare for the event by studying this list of Seinfeld film locations.
The Fraunces Tavern Museum is hosting a dinner honoring those involved with achieving American Independence. The British Army evacuated America on November 25, 1783, thus the event is appropriately called, Evacuation Day Dinner. It will be hosted by The Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York.
