Thanksgiving Dinner - Hart House 1640 - Ipswich, MA

Hi Ladies:

No plans for Thanksgiving? Join the ladies at the Harts House in Ipswich. This is turning into our holiday tradition (Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas)! Past holidays were wonderful, great food, menu choices, if you chose not to have the traditional.

I have reserved 25 spots and need to update them 10 days prior to the event. If you wish to bring more than one guest, please contact the organizer of the meetup. Where we do come to this location for all holiday events, please help us to continue to do so....rsvp only if you are serious about attending, they have already allocated a room for us to accomodate 20-25 people. It would not be fair to the establishment for them to have to move us and other parties around, or turn a larger party away for space we say we are taking. They are almost totally sold out for Thanksgiving.

Our Thanksgiving Dinner Reservations are at 11:30 at the Harts House in Ipswich. (We chose this time for Parking Reasons and wait time :)

If it is a nice day we can hike after our meal, nice trails down the road.

Parking is available at back of building, enter at front.

THERE WILL ONLY BE ONE CHECK PER GROUP, I DO KNOW IT'S EASIER TO GET SEPARATE CHECKS BUT THEY WERE VERY SPECIFIC .....ON BILL ONLY AND TO LET THE GROUP KNOW AHEAD OF TIME.

    I might be the only vegetarian in the group but fyi I had called the restaurant a while ago to make sure they would have a vegetarian option and they said they are offering butternut squash ravioli.

    November 20, 2012

  • Sue

    RSVP's were called in based on number we had at that time, 22.

    November 19, 2012

  • Sue

    I told them we want the menu choices so you can order traditional or other options as you wish.

    Hi Folks: Liking the idea of a hike/walk, whatever better than the movie, unless it turns out to be a rainy day. Going to a movie after a big meal will probably put to sleep! Triptophan is like a sleeping pill! Hiking will be good exercise! Cindy

    An option/sugestion? New release. In Danvers, must be showing on two screens making it easy timewise.

    Ladies carpooling with me...I am going to skip the walk and go to a movie in Woburn instead. That was I can still drive everyone and it won't effect carpool. Those interested in joining us at a movie are welcome... Thanks Ninamarie for movie idea!

    November 19, 2012

  • Sue

    Hi Ninamarie: I was holding out on walk because me feet have been bothering me. I am so in for a movie.....nice warm and so many good movies out....I'll check out Woburn (I have 2 ladies carpooling with me meeting in Wakefield so I have to do Woburn if anything)

    November 19, 2012

  • Ninamaria

    Hi I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in a movie after
    Thanksgiving dinner? Ninamarie

    Hi Ricia: The holiday tradition started very early on in this meetup. The first being a Thanksgiving dinner at a members home "Tobie", the second was Barbara Carson, who had no idea what she started when she offered to run the Thanksgiving dinner meetup....lol she invisioned a small gathering of 7 ladies. The request got so large that she was overwhelmed, I ended up taking over the event for her that year. Since then the group has gathered for for Easter, Christmas and now our 3rd Thanksgiving dinner! I am so proud of all who have participated in making these holiday a new tradition for the meetup and all the attendees who come to spend the holiday's with friends! I hope this tradition continues on for many many years! Thank you all for being a part of it!

  • ricia

    Wondering about having one check for the whole group. Will we split the check or pay for what each one eats and drinks?

    November 18, 2012

    • Sue

      Everyone will be responsible their share of the bill (meal/drinks/tax/tip) :)

      November 18, 2012

  • ricia

    Finally, on a "posting roll", I would love to hear and share the happy and touching appreciations we are thankful for, beginning with this list and Sue for co-ordinating.

    See you all Thursday....

    November 18, 2012

  • ricia

    Walking after stuffing myself on Thanksgiving has become one of my personal traditions and I'd love to continue it with you all.

    November 18, 2012

  • robbie

    Taking a walk anywhere sounds good to me. Looks like the weather will be good. I may have to get back to house to connect with my daughter, so I'll see how much time is going to be spent on a walk or a stroll in Newburyport.

    November 18, 2012

  • Joanne

    I am good for a short walk after dinner -- as long as it isn't a hike. Sue, I will wait to hear from you on Tuesday. Thank you.

    November 18, 2012

  • Christine

    Theresa and I think a siitroll along the waterway in Newburyport after dinner would be a nice option providing thee weather is nice. Please let us know how is interested.

    November 17, 2012

  • Cindy H.

    Hi All. Count me in for the hike/walk whatever after dinner. The exercise would be good for all of me. Cindy

    November 17, 2012

  • Christine

    I won't be hiking after the meal as I'm having knee surgery on the 27th, however I just thought of another option. If it's a mild day we could go to Newburyport and take a stroll along the water.

    November 17, 2012

    • Theresa

      That sound great, Christine, why don't you organize it that now, before Thanksgiving!! I would like it.

      November 17, 2012

  • Joanne

    Sue - If you are going to hike directly after the dinner, I will not be able to carpool with you. Let me know. Thanks.

    November 17, 2012

    • Sue

      I posted hike for the group not sure I am going to be able to attend hike yet. I am really not needed, it is directly across from Marini Farms, which member will see on the way in (from highway), trail pretty much is easy to maneuver. I'll advise by Tuesday :)

      November 17, 2012

    • Lynne

      Joanne/Sue: hike or no hike; we can be flexible, no? If someone doesn't want to go, bring a book and wait comfortably in the car. The ladies will not be 'hiking' after a Thanksgiving meal, maybe more a short walk/stretch.

      November 17, 2012

  • Sue

    Finalized RSVP's we will have a table set for 22 of us. Weather looks good for a hike afterwards Marnini Farms has a nice walking path for a hike afterwards. Those that want to attend please bring walking shoes :0 No need to rsvp for walk, those that want to attend will meet and go afterwards, very casual.

    November 17, 2012

  • Peggy

    My Thanksgiving plans are up in the air. I will know by early next week if I will be traveling or not. If anyone is on the wait list at that time I will give up my seat.

    November 14, 2012

  • Cindy H.

    Hi. I am new to the group having just joined. Please let's know if there is an opening for Thanksgiving dinner. Sounds like fun!
