With Piecora’s shuttered and awaiting demolition, one of the small traditions of Capitol Hill Thanksgiving is gone. Every year, the restaurant opened for a come-all Thanksgiving feast. Don Jensen, executive director at Community Lunch on Capitol Hill, tells CHS that the tradition is still alive with his group and All Pilgrims Church:
I wanted to let you know that Community Lunch on Capitol Hill will be serving a traditional Thanksgiving meal on the 27th at 5pm at All Pilgrims Church, and it is open to EVERYONE! We will have turkey and all the trimmings, and it should be a great meal. I have attached our turkey flier promoting it. All Pilgrims is at Broadway and Republican, entrance on Republican. We will be serving from 5-6pm.
If you’re interested in learning about this and other “feed the hungry” and volunteer opportunities in the area, here’s a roster of local food banks and organizations that are busy this time of year.
Capitol Hill also offers feasts for budgets of mostly every level. Here are some of the special Thanksgiving plans for Capitol Hill food and drink Thursday of the more “last minute” variety. Please let us know about anything we missed.
