Are we the only ones amazed that next week is Thanksgiving? And, here we sit with plans to be in Las Vegas, but no idea what to do after that, like VegasChatter reader William R.:
This year we are going to be in Vegas for Thanksgiving, and wondered if you could recommend anywhere where we could get a traditional Thanksgiving dinner? We know there are lots of places, but we don't particularly want to "chow down" at a buffet, and would prefer to book ahead and celebrate Thanksgiving with a proper traditional "home cooked" meal.
Although buffets are synonymous with Vegas, you don't have to serve yourself this Thanksgiving. We round up 16 spots up, down and off the Strip for the plan-less to consider. If you see one you're especially interested in, make reservations right away or risk going with a lesser choice!
Meatball Spot at Town Square
Turkey meatball platter (three 'balls) with fresh cranberry sauce & signature stuffing for $10.95
Public House at Venetian
$48 prix fixe menu includes Butternut and Cider Soup, IPA-brined Breast and Sage Ice Cream
Add-ons include Yorkshire Pudding ($8 supplement) and beer pairings ($14)

First up, turkey time:

Holly Madison has more than a handful for Turkey Day and Daily Mail has the snapshots to prove it. But, if you don't want to juggle all that, there are plenty of places up and down The Strip more than willing to roast your bird. Here's a look at where you can go to be thankful you're not in the kitchen this holiday:
●Strip House at Planet Hollywood
$38 Thanksgiving feast to feature turkey, chestnut-apple bread stuffing, balsamic-cranberry sauce, more; add a slice of pumpkin pie paired with Tahitian vanilla ice cream for an additional $10
●Society Cafe at Encore
$41 Thanksgiving menu offers an appetizer, slow-roasted turkey with all the fixin's and a pumpkin tart

Until recently we never thought that Thanksgiving in Vegas could be cool since it's a family first holiday, but when we thought about it some more we realized that Thanksgiving at a casino could be just like the holiday tradition we grew up with, only better.
Growing up we'd do nothing more than watch football, eat too much and watch more football. Now we realize we can have the same thing only having the games on TVs as big as the house we grew up in and food prepared by someone that could actually cook (sorry, mom).
When we were considering moving to Las Vegas we met Julia B at First Food & Bar, in between Venetian and Palazzo, for drinks and snacks. That day will forever be etched in our minds as a special day and First Food (and their sangria) will always be a part of that memory. We've visited First a couple of times since and find it to be one of the better bar-restaurants on The Strip and one that many don't know about since it's kind of hidden in the shops.

The worst kept secret here at VegasChatter headquarters is our love of food so it should come as no surprise that Thanksgiving falls near the top of our favorite holidays. Peepers drive north to view the fall foliage while our annual pastime involves trolling special Vegas restaurant menus for the ultimate irresistible holiday meal.
Imagine not only stepping out to chase the Turducken but going back in time to recreate the original Thanksgiving. Completing your voyage, stepping onto uncharted lands to soak in the autumn leaves sprinkling over bales of hay and cornucopias. Picture taking a seat with other settlers to break bread amongst the abundance of crops. An overflowing feast representing the fortunes of health and wealth the land will offer unfolds before you. Music, a lyre perhaps, softly plays in the background while the wine flows freely.

Las Vegas hardly ever closes down so the American holiday of Thanksgiving is no exception. While you're still deciding where you should have your Turkey Dinner, you can get some early holiday shopping done at Forum Shops which will be open from 10am to 11pm tomorrow.
Of course, while the rest of Vegas may still be open, VegasChatter needs to take a break. But don't worry, we'll be back on Monday with our usual witty stories and Strip observations. Besides, we're gonna need the time off to process Harrah's Entertainment Inc.'s name change to Caesars Entertainment Corp.
Whether you're thankful for loose slots, high roller suites, dirt-cheap room rates, Chippendale dancers, Norm Clarke, Robin Leach, Holly Madison, Criss Angel, Garth Brooks, freaky magicians, foodie feasts, DJ beats or simply Red Bull and vodkas, we wanna know how you spent Thanksgiving in Vegas!

When being thankful means being grateful someone else is doing the cooking...
Spend hours upon hours in the kitchen? Or let a relative labor over a holiday meal?
The choice for many is simple - get a complete stranger to do it.
Thankfully (no pun intended), Las Vegas has you covered for Thanksgiving. Here's where to gobble up a holiday feast on November 25 - from luxe to just a few bucks - without having to wear an apron first.
Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace will have one of the most decadent holiday meal offerings in the city. A limited-time white truffle menu features a pumpkin-and-white-truffle soup served in a 25-pound pumpkin (yep, just like the one pictured above!). Guests also will enjoy white truffle risotto and guinea hen with, you guessed it, white truffles.
$390 per person. Service starts at 5:30 p.m.
