Directions, parking, and mass transit information is available online here:



Thanksiving is November 28 2019. That's when we'll be having dinner.

If you're not cooking at our place, plan to arrive around 3PM, so we have time to heat up and do one of those big lunch/dinner meals people do (start eating by 4PM). You're also welcome to cook at our place - just let us know in advance. We should be wrapped up by early evening.

Dishes and other stuff you'll be bringing[edit]

When planning your dish, keep in mind that most of the ELS folks (and many of the guests) are vegetarian. As a result, if you can, we really appreciate it if you try to keep things vegetarian.

Here's a full list with pictures from a previous thanksgiving that shows how everything was vegetarian and almost every food item was vegan.

You can add items that you want to make and add your names by the items.


If anybody has allergies or other dietary restrictions (beyond simply being vegetarian), please note them here or email Mika & Mako.
