I know. Thanksgiving is not a traditional Bahamian celebration. But in recent years, due to simple proximity as well as the influence of American visitors, many Bahamians have adopted the holiday. (An opportunity to stop and give thanks, plus a turkey dinner? Who wouldn’t want to partake?!)
If you’re on Green Turtle Cay today, you’ve got several Thanksgiving dining options…
In New Plymouth, Harvey’s Island Grill will be serving a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner, complete with homemade pumpkin pie. Reservations aren’t required, but they are recommended. Call Harvey’s at 365-4389 or on VHF Channel 16.
At Leeward Yacht Club, the Lizard Bar & Grill is serving a smoked turkey meal with gravy, stuffing, green beans, Bahamian macaroni and cheese and of course, pumpkin or pecan pie.
Ballyhoo restaurant at the Bluff House Beach Resort, is not only serving a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner, but they’re giving you the chance to burn off that extra piece of pie dancing to the New Entry Band, who’ll play from 8:30-11:30pm.
Whatever you do today and wherever you celebrate it, Happy Thanksgiving!
