The Roosevelt Hotel, 7000 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood
With the antioxidants in cranberries, the lean meat of turkey, and the fiber in sweet potatoes, it’s OK to make Thanksgiving dinner a multiple meal affair (just maybe watch out for the pie!). Celebrate early with a four-course menu from Chef Tim Goodell.

Voted one of LA’s most romantic restaurants, Inn of the Seventh Ray will offer a five-course tasting menu on Thanksgiving that turns the classic Turkey Day into a vegan-friendly feast.

Fri. Nov. 23, 9-10 a.m.
South Coast Dancesport, 23461 Ridge Route Drive, Laguna Hills
Marilyn’s classes may be held every Friday, but we figured if you’re not still in a tryptophan coma, this might be a perfect morning to shake your tail feathers in a salute to Tom Turkey and try out a new Zumba workout.

Nix Nature Center in Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, 18751 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach
