TVS Thanksgiving Feast at Cafe Parizade

November 4, 10:30 PM update: I have closed RSVPs for this Meetup.

------------------

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? :-) We will have a Meetup again this year at the Triangle Vegetarian Society's vegan Thanksgiving feast at Cafe Parizade in Durham. Our group will be seated during the 12:00 and 12:30 arrival times. See the TVS Thanksgiving webpage for more details about the event, including prices and the tentative menu.

Please read the entire description below.

If you will be attending the event, but are not planning to sit with the Meetup group, please DO NOT RSVP here. If you are attending the event, but can't come at 12:00 or 12:30, please DO NOT RSVP here.

A YES RSVP to this event does NOT guarantee you a seat at the event! In order to come to the event and sit with the Meetup group, you will also need to make a reservation and payment through the TVS website before our reservation times fill up. I have listed the steps to follow below, which will give you the best chance of sitting with the group.

You must reserve early with TVS to increase the chances that there will be space in the 12:00 or 12:30 arrival times. I recommend making your reservation ASAP after reservations open.

Here are the steps which will give you the best chance to sit with us:

1) RSVP "Yes" on this page.

2) Once reservations open on Saturday at 9:00 AM, make an online reservation through the TVS Thanksgiving website and choose either the 12:00 or 12:30 arrival time for the Thanksgiving Day seating at Cafe Parizade.

3) Important - While on the reservation form, under the question "Enter any notes, questions, or requests...", please enter "Triangle Vegetarian/Vegan Meetup group" in the box. Please also include your Meetup name in this box.

4) Make your payment (credit card or check).

5) Show up hungry at Cafe Parizade on Thanksgiving Day. :-)

This event is cross-posted with the Triangle Vegan Social Club meetup, and our two groups will be seated together at the same tables. If you're a member of both Meetups, please only RSVP to one of them.

Please let me know what questions you have!

    Thanks so much,Dilip,for keeping me informed.

    • Dilip B.

      Sure. Do keep an eye - Ken will post as soon as we know anything, hopefully within the hour.

      We were able to open about 20 seats for outdoor seating, but they were gobbled up. We're full now!

      November 20, 2012

  • Patricia C.

    Wondering if there a wait list?

    November 13, 2012

    • Dilip B.

      No. We have had a wait list in the past but it proved too difficult to administer. Your best bet is watching the TVS website. Best wishes!

    • Dilip B.

      Patricia, please keep an eye on the website tomorrow, Tuesday the 20th, afternoon for final words on whether there will be any additional Thanksgiving seating. Ref: trianglevegsociety.org/t­hanksgiving

    If anyone has a change of plans and is unable to make it to the TV Thanksgiving dinner, please let me know! I would be more than happy to reimburse you for the ticket. Thank you, thank you! :-)

    Wow, I think this event is setting new records! Reservations have been open for only a day and a half, and already all seatings except 2:30 are full (only 4 slots left for the 2pm). Vegan eating on Thanksgiving must be popular! Anyway, not sure where everyone else there will be coming from, but I'm coming in from southern Kentucky! :-) See everyone there at 2:30!

    • Dilip B.

      Thanks for your post, Scott - I look forward to seeing you on Thanksgiving!

  • Helene

    I'm going Sunday and Thursday. Looking forward to seeing everyone!! :)

  • Ken

    I'm so sorry for the inconvenience today! We will open reservations again at 2:00 PM. If the 12 and 12:30 are full when you make your reservation, please make a reservation for the earliest available time at Cafe Parizade, and I will do my best to get you into the Meetup seating area. -Ken

      Thanks Ken, it worked. Great job working out the bugs so quickly.

    I was unable to get on the site at 9am due to an appointment. I am trying to make my reservation now, but get this message: November 3, 10:00 AM - Reservations are currently unavailable while we investigate an issue some guests are having with the reservation/payment process. We will be back online as soon as possible and apologize for the inconvenience.

    November 3, 2012

    • Karen M

      The site says now that they plan to open the reservations again at 2pm.

      November 3, 2012

    • Dilip B.

      We're open again! Sorry for the inconvenience - and many thanks to Ken for solving a strange issue so well!

    Remember that this year you have two Thanksgivings to choose from - not just our Parizade one the day of Thanksgiving, but one the Sunday before at Washington Duke Inn. Best wishes!

    Ken, TVS opens at midnight on 3rd? Tess, let me know and I could buy your ticket for you at midnight. I have a reminder set and will need to get two already.

    October 30, 2012

    • Ken

      Hi Helene, I do not yet know what time reservations will open. I'll post here and on the TVS website as soon as I know!

      October 30, 2012

  • Ken

    Tess, I'm so happy you're eager to join us again! We're still working out final details and will post here as soon as everything is ready.

    October 28, 2012

    • Ken

      TVS expects to open Thanksgiving reservations on Saturday, November 3 (definitely no earlier than Saturday). I plan to open RSVPs on Tuesday or Wednesday. I'll send an email to the Meetup to let everyone know when RSVPs will open.
