By Jim Boyce | Heads up, Canucks! Watch the feathers fly as the Jays host the Orioles in the MLB American League wild card game. Catch all the action Wednesday from 7 AM at Irish Volunteer / Hockey Bar. Breakfast available from 8 AM. Moosehead at 20 kuai per bottle.
Plus, two Beijing venues host Thanksgiving dinner this Sunday. Get a drink (wine, beer or soda), pumpkin soup, turkey, gravy, all the fixings, plus dessert, at IV for rmb180 (rmb150 for vegetarians and rmb50 for kids under 12). Two seatings, 25 spots each: I heard there were about 10 seats left at 5:30 and a few at 7 PM, so RSVP ASAP via trishsmithus (at) gmail.com / 6438-5581.
Meanwhile, 4 Corners is doing a Thanksgiving buffet with turkey, roast beef, mac ‘n’ cheese, Nanaimo bars, pumpkin pie and more. The rmb228 tag includes a cocktail or mulled wine. That one goes from 6 PM to 9 PM and you can RSVP at 6401-7797. Pass the pumpkin pie, eh?
