Happy Thanksgiving! If your not spending time (or too much time) with the family eating turkey and still want to party, check the Great African Ball as Senegalese singer and percussionist Youssou N’Dour brings mbalax, Senegal’s blend of percussion and praise singing to the stage for one great way to celebrate thanksgiving or any day. While the original Junior’s in Brooklyn is best, this midtown location offers a nearly identical menu of deli sandwiches, diner entrees, and of course soul food fixin’s, on top of some of the best cheesecake in NYC, which is saying a lot! For drinks check out The View. Not the TV show, but the bar high atop the Marriot Marquis. Plus it revolves. If you’re looking for something to do, go to Madame Tussauds wax museum. Yes, it’s a cheesy tourist attraction, but where else are you going to get a picture with Nicholas Cage or Samuel L. Jackson?
