Don't want to cook for Thanksgiving? Aspen has you covered!
Have you ever met a person who doesn’t love a big Thanksgiving dinner? I personally haven’t, but I’ve met plenty that don’t love cooking it! When I used to live in the Hunter Creek apartments, our kitchens barely had the bandwidth to withstand cooking a Thanksgiving feast. If you find yourself in either of the two camps just mentioned, you’ll want to consider one of the options below for a pain-free Thanksgiving experience. From dining out to to-go options, this list has you covered!
Ajax Tavern | Dine-In | 5:00 – 9:00 PM | $60+ per guest | To-Go option available
Whether you are looking for a traditional plate of turkey with all the fixings or prefer your favorite Ajax Tavern staples, gather your family and loved ones for an evening at the base of Aspen Mountain. Plat du Jour is $60 per guest | Ajax Tavern’s regular menu is also available.
For the to-go option, allow The Little Nell’s culinary team to lend a helping hand this year with a pre-cooked meal to-go, ready to be reheated and served. Place your order by noon on November 21. Pick up from 9 - 11 am on Thanksgiving Day, November 23. $250 per order, which serves up to 4 people.
Update: The dine-in option JUST sold out. You can join the waitlist by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or 970.920.6331. To-go is still taking orders at the same contact email and number!
Element 47 | Dine-In | 3:00 – 9:00 PM | $150+ per guest
Enjoy a chef-prepared holiday dinner so you can relax, celebrate, and give thanks.
