Thanksgiving remains a particularly American holiday, and several expat-friendly places will be offering special menus with turkey and trimmings on Nov. 24.

While it is a day off in the United States, that is not the case here, and preparing a proper Thanksgiving feast takes all day. Many people opt to eat out instead or have the meal delivered. Some people shift the celebration to the weekend, so they relax all day with their food and friends.

In the U.S., it is a day for extended families to get together, with people traveling long distances. Here, though, it is more common for friends to meet and catch up ahead of the busy holiday season.

The last year has taken a toll on the local eatery scene, but several long-time venues have survived and will be offering their takes on turkey again this year. Both Jama Pub and the Globe Bookstore and Cafe have full menus of turkey and trimmings.

Hard Rock Cafe will serve turkey with trimmings and optional pumpkin pie from Nov. 24 to Nov. 27, so people can still get a bit of bird throughout the weekend. They will also have live acoustic music from Jamie Marshall on Nov. 24 at 8 p.m.

A relative newcomer to the event is the Hotel Fitzgerald and its restaurant the Twisted Fig, which has a choice of dinners (including of course turkey) followed by a concert and drinks.

People who really want to splash out on their meal can go to CottoCrudo, which is preparing a lavish spread. New this year, a comedy club has a night of dinner-themed jokes.

Cook at home

You can get whole turkeys or just parts delivered or you can pick them up at two locations in Prague run by Prominent CZ. The turkeys are free-range and raised near Liberec.

For pumpkin pie filling and cranberry sauce, you can go to the Candy Store, which carries many international foods.

Eat out

You can eat at a communal table at Manifesto Anděl at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 24 and reservations are required as spaces are limited. Price: CZK 765. You can also have the same meal from Dirty Dog Southern Smokehouse delivered via Wolt or pick it up at Manifesto.

The Globe Bookstore and Cafe will serve a set menu on Nov. 24 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Price: CZK 800.

Jama Pub is among the venues with the longest-running Thanksgiving tradition and will continue this year on Nov. 24 at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Price: CZK 745.

CottoCrudo in the Four Seasons hotel offers a gourmet feast with a roast turkey roulade on Nov. 24 from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Price: CZK 1,750.

The Hotel Fitzgerald and Twisted Fig in Karlín have dinner and a show on Nov. 24. A two- or three-course meal is at 6 p.m. and a concert by Juwana Jenkins and Band is at 8 p.m. Price: Dinner is between CZK 490 and CZK 600; tickets are also available for just the show.

The Hard Rock Cafe has a turkey entree with side dishes and optional pumpkin pie all day from Nov 24 to Nov. 27, while supplies last. Price: Turkey entree is CZK 400 and the dessert is CZK 205.

Celebrate on the weekend instead

De Facto cafébar in Vinohrady has an international Thanksgiving on Nov. 26 at 7 p.m. with foods from around the world. People can bring dishes, but it is not mandatory.

The Holiday Inn in Prague 4 next to the Prague Congress Center has a Thanksgiving brunch with not only turkey but also fish and sushi on Nov. 27 from noon to 3 p.m. Price: CZK 1,250.

Hopefully the jokes aren't turkeys

Something a bit different, a special evening of comedy called "Tales from the Dinner Table" is at the new Metro Comedy Club on Nov. 24 at 8 p.m. Price: tickets cost CZK 300 at the door.
