This week's tablehopper: a day late and a dollar short.

Did you miss me yesterday at 3pm? You didn’t think I was going to come back from Vegas alive, did you? Well, I did—and I’ll have a quick recap of my trip for you in Friday’s issue, because I ate some mighty tasty dishes, let me tell you! I had a fabulous 48 hours, and am excited to head back there soon—there’s a lot I need to check out.

So, there is also a whole lot happening seasonally right now: we have Dungeness crab any day now (we just need the fishermen to decide on a price), we have white truffles galore (check out all these special truffle dinners around town—we have added even more to the list), and tomorrow is the celebration of Beaujolais Nouveau!

And, of course, there’s the big one: Thanksgiving is next week! In today’s issue, you will find some of our picks of places serving Thanksgiving dinner around town, along with a few purveyor tips and tricks for those of you preparing Thanksgiving at home.

I will actually be on 7Live tomorrow (Thursday) to talk Thanksgiving and other holiday options—tune in at 3pm!

See you Friday!
