This definitely isn’t your grandmother’s Thanksgiving! Russell Simmons will host an upcoming benefit brunch for turkeys – a vegan brunch, naturally. On November 22, the hip hop superstar and avowed animal activist will host The Celebration for the Turkeys at Central Park’s legendary Tavern on the Green restaurant. Along with the animal-free meal, a silent auction will raise money for Farm Sanctuary, an organization that fights the abuses of factory farms and raises awareness about a vegan lifestyle.
