From serving hot meals to the homeless to enjoying the lavish Thanksgiving spreads of the city's top hotels, the city by the bay makes for the perfect destination over the coming holiday weekend. Come spend Thanksgiving in San Francisco this year, I have got it all planned out for you:
- Stay and Feast in a Historic Hotel: San Francisco's elegant Historic Hotels offer an experience that is unmatched in terms of sheer architectural luxury. This year two of the largest are throwing Thanksgiving feasts for their guests:
- The Fairmont, which is perched on the top of Nob Hill, is offering a Thanksgiving Holiday Buffet Brunch set to live jazz and overlooking the city in the Crown Room. At night the hotel's famous Tonga Room Lounge will also host a live band and serve a special Pacific Rim inspired Thanksgiving menu. Check For Rates at the Fairmont for Thanksgiving Weekend.
- Over at the Palace Hotel, downtown's castle-like crown jewel, a Thanksgiving Buffet Brunch will take over the Grand Ballroom during the day and come evening, guests can dine on traditional Thanksgiving day fixing under the Maxfield Parish mural in the Pied Piper Bar and Grill. Check For Rates at the Palace for Thanksgiving Weekend.
- Feed the Homeless at Glide. A beacon of radical inclusivity, Glide Memorial Church needs hearty volunteer support to put on its massive Thanksgiving Day turkey carving and feast, which feeds thousands of Bay Area families and individuals, many of them homeless. Sign up to volunteer at Glide for Thanksgiving Day.
- Run the Waterfront and Burn Off all those Thanksgiving Calories. Those staying in San Francisco through Thanksgiving weekend can help raise money for the Toys for Tots program and run off some of that turkey and stuffing by participating in the 5k run/walk known as the Run Wild. Taking place on Crissy Field on Sunday, November 25th, Run Wild kicks off bright and early at 9am and everyone is welcome. Visit the Official Website for more details.
