New York Hotels Celebrate Thanksgiving & Hanukkah

This week will see a one-time-only quirk of two calendars that causes two holidays--one ancient, one fairly modern--to converge: Dubbed "Thanksgivukah," Thanksgiving and Hanukkah will be combined this year, and (according to some experts on the Jewish calendar) never again. Hanukkah  begins at sundown on November 27, while Thanksgiving is the day of November 28. (We say this is a prime excuse to serve latkes with turkey. Trust us, they go great together.)

Those in New York can combine the two food-focused holidays at The Eventi, A Kimpton Hotel, which will serve a menu of both traditional Thanksgiving and Hanukkah favorites at Humphrey restaurant and in-room. (Cool touch: All of the tables will be decorated both a Menorah and Cornucopia side-by-side.)

Thanksgivukah menu options will include:
·         Green Onion and & Zucchini latkes with, Crème Fraiche, Jalapeno Brandied Apple Sauce and Fresh Cranberries 
·         The Ultimate Thanksgiving Sandwich: Roast Turkey, Cranberry Chutney, Green Apple and Corn Bread Stuffing, Grandma’s Gravy, on Marble Rye or Toasted Sour Dough 
·         Pumpkin Cheesecake, Candied Cranberries, Malted Milk Chocolate Ice Cream, “Gelt”
(Good to know: Traditional Thanksgiving and Hanukkah menus are available upon request for purists.)
