Can anyone recommend a good place to eat dinner on Thanksgiving?

Most of the restaurants will be closed so the employees can celebrate the holiday with their families. Some of the resorts will keep a restaurant open for their guests. One option is a potluck dinner held at the Full Moon Bar at Cane Bay. This has been going on for years and usually has anywhere from 50-150 people attend. They have a sign up sheet going on now to help spread out what people bring as potluck dishes to share. There is always turkey and ham and roast pork and mac-n-cheese and mashed potatoes and assorted salads and green beans and desserts and bread and so much more. The bar will be open for beverage service but the food is provided by everyone who attends. This is kind of a large, extended family of other transplants and some locals and usually a lot of fun. It's a great alternative for people who are here away from their families on the mainland.

We eat at home, However 3 years ago my son was married on Thanksgiving week and to many people to feed that day. We went to the DIVI and it was great! All 60 of us and on a short notice.

Domino Club does a great Thanksgiving dinner... we were moving on Thanksgiving day last year and stopped in late to eat after moving all day. As usual, the atmosphere was cool and the food was fantastic. We'll be there again this year, although, thankfully, we are not moving this time.

Great tip - just in time for Thanksgiving!!

Here is a turkey recipe that also includes the use of popcorn as a stuffing --
imagine that. When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like
me, who just are not sure how to tell when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but not
dried out. Give this a try.

8 - 15 lb. turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is Good.)
1 cup uncooked popcorn (TRAILS END UNBELIEVABLE BUTTER) Salt/pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter
salt, and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in
baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven.

Listen for the popping sounds. When the turkey's butt blows the oven door
open and the bird flies across the room, it's done!!!

The band coming from the states to play all over the island from November 26-December 8th has a native STXer in the group. Some people here will know Joey Roberts. He is the grandson of Mama Candi Dyer from Rust Op Twist. Their first show is at Chicken Charlie's on the 26th after they arrive and they are playing 11 gigs in 12 days at nearly every venue you can think up, including Parrot's Cove, Club 54, Domino Club and a bunch more he listed so fast I missed them. I think he said Off the Wall in there somewhere as well. He's supposed to be sending me a list of locations and times to share so that anyone who wants to follow them around and be groupies for a week can have fun with them. The band is coming from Tampa.
