Give Thanks for Dada

We're sure the reason you want to eat out on Thanksgiving has nothing to do with the charred carcass of a 20-pound turkey smoking in your oven as you read this. You just prefer that the money you spend on this dinner of thanks goes to a more thankful and deserving cause than the supermarket CEO's golden parachute, right? You're not much for cooking anyways. Who has the time and energy -- the space? Dada (52 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach) is here to help you on all counts. From 5 p.m. to close for $22 a person, Dada will serve you a three-course traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings. This is the third year Dada has opened its doors for Turkey Day, and it's all for a good cause, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Joshua House and the Lord's Place to help feed the homeless while you are served in style. Dada's trying to leave room for walk-ins (read: the ones with the charred carcasses), but reservations are recommended. Call 561-330-3232.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
