NY - New York City (NYC) ... where to eat on Thanksgiving Day?

We're going up for the Macy's parade and need some ideas of where to eat on Thanksgiving Day.

Our hotel is in the 200 block of West 50th near Times Square.

We don't want to have to dress up much and cost will be somewhat of a consideration.

I''m hoping Bucky and I can get together at least for a drink or something so I can bop him over the head in person.

No problem mudbug. You might want to consider looking at the places in city search as well because you will get reviews as well as extra info on each place. I hope you enjoy the trip. I am going to be getting together with a group of friends this year. I'm just glad it's not at my place!!!

Thanks for the tip, will check it out. We're not going to be there long - arrive Wed afternoon and leave Friday night

Daughter of course wants to see the MTV studio (haven't told her about the giant Virgin megastore yet).

Maybe you can help with something else:
We've been told it's a lot of fun to go to some location in Central Park the night before the parade, because that's when/where they blow up all those big balloon float thingies. D'ya know anything about it?

Yes, I know a few people who have done that. I will ask and get back with you unless someone else can answer in the meantime.

It looks like the streets surrounding 77th Street and Central Park West where the parade kicks off is where you can watch them inflate the balloons. It's around the Museum of Natural History. It's suppose to start around 4:00pm and end around 8:00. I've heard that it can be a lot of fun if the weather is nice.

Macy's has an actual parade website, Mudbug. Check that out. It will give you locations for watching the balloons going up, and it will give you best corner vantage points along the route, too.

How long will you be in the city? Who are you traveling with? How are you getting here?
