If you’re one of the more practical transplants in New York, then you probably decided to forgo splurging on a Thanksgiving flight just one month before you go home for the holidays. But staying in the city doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a nice, community-building dinner: This Thursday, the folks at Dirck The Norseman are inviting all Thanksgiving “orphans” to eat and be merry for the third year in a row. For just $50, attendees, who are encouraged to bring a family dessert, will enjoy glasses of beer and wine over a home cooked meal prepared by the Dirck staff while kids under age 12 eat for free. Ten dollars of every ticket sold will be donated to the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen. Tickets are available here, doors open at 5pm.
