Turkey day delight

Go Get Em Tiger is once again doing its annual Thanksgiving coffee bonanza, popping up with a slew of one-off menu items meant to recreate some of the more egregious caffeinated drinks found at other, larger chains. This year’s menu will include a pumpkin spice latte, peppermint mocha, an eggnog latte, and more, with proceeds going to the Downtown Women’s Center. The main party this year will happen at GGET’s Highland Park location on Figueroa, and will also include face painting, a petting zoo, and a DIY snow globe station. Hours run Thursday, November 22 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

A new gig

Chef Kris Morningstar has a new gig. He’ll be running the whole food and beverage operation at the incoming members-only H Club in Hollywood, from the tea room to the restaurant to the rooftop lounge. The place is slated to open in February of 2019.

The awards

Chef Jon Yao of Kato has another new award under his belt, as he’s been named to Forbes’ coveted 30-under-30 list. Yao is also a Food & Wine best new chef for 2018.

Full of Joy

TimeOut loves Joy on York in Highland Park. Vivian Ku’s follow-up restaurant to Pine & Crane gets four stars for its “fiercely hip vibe” and exemplary food.

Never quit

Heads up for those in need: Pacific Dining Car is open all day on Thanksgiving, doing a multi-course meal for all to enjoy.

Keep it easy

Kai Japanese Roots in Downtown has a whole new happy hour to know about, with options like $10 sashimi sampler plates, $4 cauliflower tempura, and $4 glasses of wine.

Get Home safe

Good news, taco lovers: Homestate is safer than ever. The Los Feliz location of the Texas breakfast taco haunt is in the process of getting a wide new crosswalk to keep people from dangerously jaywalking, and that means a wider new outdoor seating area as well.
