A Morning Menu of Stories We Think You’ll Find Interesting
Norma’s Cafe Serving Free Thanksgiving Dinner
For the 26th consecutive year, Norma’s Cafe will be serving free Thanksgiving dinner, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, at their Oak Cliff location (1123 West Davis Street in Dallas). While they don’t say anything about who the meal is for (in fact, they explicitly state it’s for anyone who comes), we suspect it’s meant more for people in need than anyone else, so if that’s you and your family, we suggest you show up early and enjoy Norma’s hospitality.
Grand Central Holiday Fair
Grand Central’s 15th Holiday Fair began in Vanderbilt Hall a couple of days ago in New York City.

Check here for the complete vendor list and map. For more details about the fair, details on the offerings from some of the vendors, and the wonderful Grand Central building itself, check here.
