If you’re tempted to prepare a vegan Thanksgiving dinner because it doesn’t involve sticking your hand inside a dead bird, think again. From hunting down an elusive Tofurkey to convincing your Southern relatives to actually eat it, a meat-free holiday has its own downsides. Skip the drama and give thanks to Foodswings, the Brooklyn mecca of meatless fast food, who will host a Vegan Thanksgiving feast of belt-loosening proportions. For $15, indulge in traditional favorites like stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and, yes, the infamous faux turkey.
