Thanksgiving Comes Early! 

Vegetarians have a tough go of it when Thanksgiving time rolls around. The entire meal centers on turkey (in case you haven’t noticed), and in addition to missing out on the bird, the vegetarians can’t even enjoy stuffing (usually) or mashed potatoes. Well, technically mashed potatoes are vegetables, but eating them without gravy seems un-American. So what’s left for those of the veggie persuasion? The cranberries and the sweet potatoes — and they make for a pretty sad meal. Fortunately, the St. Louis Vegetarian Society saves the holiday once again with its tenth annual Turkey-Free Thanksgiving Feast at the First Congregational Church of St. Louis (6501 Wydown Boulevard, Clayton). Delicious vegetarian food abounds at this supper — notice it’s called a “feast” — so no one will leave hungry, not even the non-vegetarians. In fact, a “turkey” will be served along with dressing and other sides, soup, salad, and dessert! The dinner bell rings at 5 p.m., and tickets cost $15 in advance (from MoKaBe’s among other places) and $20 at the door. For more about the meal, visit
