Thanksgiving is almost here and it’s time to start thinking about your celebration plans! If you’re sick of sitting around a table with a big dead bird, Farm Sanctuary has a couple celebrity-infused events that might interest you.

The first is a NYC celebration hosted by hip-hop mogul and Def Jam Founder Russell Simmons at Tavern on the Green. The event will include a yummy vegan gourmet brunch and a special reading by Jonathan Safran Foer from his red-hot new book “Eating Animals.” Oh yeah, and I’ll be there too!

Across the country in Orland, CA, actress/advocate Daniela Sea from “The L Word” will host a compassionate Thanksgiving celebration complete with a candlelit gourmet vegan dinner, a “Feeding of the Turkeys” ceremony and a performance by punk rock pioneer Jonathan Richman.

So if you’re looking for some fun Thanksgiving plans, stop by FarmSanctuary.org and see all the events happening in your area. Happy Holidays!

    I can’t wait to meet Jonathan Safran Foer! It’s a good thing I’ll be busy coordinating volunteers so I don’t have time to stalk him :)

    Cute that there’s a turkey feeding ceremony, but not cute that it’s to plump ‘em up for Thanksgiving. I don’t really want to interact with or see the animal I’m gonna eat. I would feel evil and for sure wouldn’t be able to take a bite come dinner-time.

    Somehow I doubt the turkey being fed will later be slaughtered! These Thanksgiving meals are vegan, so no dead turkey! I assume the turkey being fed is a sanctuary turkey that will live out its days without fear of being killed.
