Jimmy Deans were so popular last time so we will be serving them again. Get them while they are still hot next Saturday morning. 

2) Thanksgiving Morning Run - 11/22 - 10AM - McLaren Lodge in Golden Gate Park
Thanksgiving Day is a day for tradition, and one of those traditions is our T-Day morning run starting from McLaren Lodge in Golden Gate Park. This year, you've got choices:  a woodsy two-mile jaunt or a five-mile run down JFK to the beach and back. Chuck Louden will be on hand to lead the two-mile run for us. For those who don't have to take right off to grandma's house for a feast, you are invited to do brunch at Crepevine on Irving St (if open) or Philz’s on Castro for coffee afterward.
