If you absolutely must gnaw on the carcass of a dead turkey on Thanksgiving, stop reading this ... now. If you're either a vegetarian or just into trying new things, however, we've got a couple of interesting alternatives for you to consider.
The first is the annual all-you-can-eat Thanksgiving feast at Govinda's at 711 E. Blacklidge Drive. The highlight of this event is the live turkey that roams around in magnificent splendor while you dine on some of the finest vegetarian fare in the city.
Govinda's also has a kick-ass pond with koi the size of small children in it. There's more on the restaurant here. Check the special events section for specifics on the Thanksgiving meal.
