If the jam you're looking for has less to do with the blues and more to do with fresh cranberries married with sweet tangerines, you'll probably want to book a seat at Lola's on Harrison (2032 Harrison St., Hollywood). Chef Michael Wagner is pulling out all the stops with an artfully prepared, three-course dinner for just $40 a head. Two Jacksons will get you spiced pumpkin soup with cinnamon creme fraiche and toasted pumpkin seeds, deep-fried Carolina turkey breast, Zinfandel braised turkey leg, white cheddar mashed potatoes, cranberry-walnut stuffing, Brussels sprouts with leeks, sherried sweet potatoes with apples, and a choice of pumpkin cheesecake with cinnamon caramel sauce or freshly-made key lime pie. Seatings run from 2 to 8 p.m. Call 954-927-9851.
Finally, there are some thanks-givers out there who prefer to show their gratitude by sparing the lives of overweight birds everywhere. For them, Sublime Vegetarian Restaurant is offering a $45 prix-fixe menu, including acorn squash bisque, a garden "turkey" complete with dressing, mushrooms en papillote, and baked apple napoleon (1431 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale). The cruelty-free service runs from 4 to 7 p.m. Call 954-539-9000.
