Nothing is sadder than sitting at home by yourself on Thanksgiving. So if you don’t have plans or don’t want to cook, head to DC Reynolds. The Park View bar is hosting its second annual Thanksgiving dinner next Thursday—completely free.
“Always on holidays I know there are people who are stuck in the city, can’t get out of work,” says co-owner Jeremy Gifford. “I figured we’re a neighborhood bar. People support us 365 days a year.”
DC Reynolds will serve a buffet of turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, and mashed potatoes. Wash it all down with buy-one-get-one drinks from 5 to 9 p.m.
Last year, Gifford estimated 30 people attended the dinner. Most came out because they were showing the Pigskins-Cowboys game. There won’t be an endless amount of food—-DC Reynolds only plans on preparing two or three turkeys—-but there should be enough for people who want to eat and and have nowhere to go.
“We can’t feed the entire city,” he says. “But if people want to come out, there will be food.”
