With Thanksgiving coinciding with the first day of Hanukkah this year, some retailers are offering special menus or promotions for the combined holiday many have dubbed “Thanksgivukkah.”
New York-based Fairway Market has created a Thanksgivukkah catering menu for 2013. The menu includes the staples of the November holiday, such as a turkey, gravy and cranberry sauce, as well as traditional Hanukkah foods like potato latkes and doughnuts.
Fairway’s Thanksgivukkah dinner for six costs $169 and dinner for twelve costs $259.
The retailer will also host a special kosher version of its “Hosting the Holiday” Thanksgiving catering tasting event on Nov. 3 at its Paramus, N.J., Stamford, Conn., and Westbury, N.Y., stores.
