Things to Do

Don't eat turkey? Govinda's has you covered for Thanksgiving tomorrow

Not every vegetarian and vegan in the city is going to be cooking his or her own Tofurkey tomorrow, and although there are several places with traditional buffets open for business, you never know what, exactly, goes into preparing those items. Rest assured, meat-shunners: Govinda's Buffet, 1400 Cherry Street, is open for business from 1 to 8 p.m. tomorrow. Here's what's on the menu:

Butternut squash soup Mashed potatoes and brown gravy Corn on the cob Cauliflower pakoras Cranberry chutney "Happy turkey" stuffing Fresh corn bread Green beans with potatoes and paneer Sweet potatoes with pineapple, walnuts and raisins Pumpkin pie Cranberry cake

The buffet is $8 to $10; call 303-333-4561 or visit
