Who says you can’t begin Thanksgiving festivities a week early? Join Bates’ Culinary Arts in their annual Thanksgiving Buffet on Thursday, Nov. 19, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the college’s Downtown Campus Cafe’. 

Be sure to wear your stretchy pants, because you’ll want to load you plate high with herb-glazed roast turkey, honey-glazed ham, traditional stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans with almonds, and more. Dine on delicious desserts, including pumpkin, apple and cherry pies.

Price is $10 per person, tax and beverage included. Kids 12 years old and under are just $6, inclusive.
