The fall colored trees have lost most their leaves, all to be replaced by a bounty of bright lights and ornaments. The holiday season seems to have made its way back around quicker than anyone could have anticipated, especially in the Princeton area. Sudden cold winds and frigid temperatures are forcing downtown dwellers to bundle up and seek shelter to their favorite restaurants and shops. But it hasn’t stopped Palmer Square and the Yankee Doodle Tap Room from delivering their annual efforts to celebrate the holiday spirit.
Thanksgiving is just a day away. Family and friends at this point are preparing to, or have already started making their long commutes, with hopes to come together and indulge in large hearty meals and conversation. The Yankee Doodle Tap Room offers the perfect venue for you to enjoy great company, delicious food, and festive drinks. Beyond that, the space inside is decorated elegantly with holiday lights and decor, and the fireplace adds warmth and ambiance. You are sure to feel cozy in this relaxing setting every year.
The Tap Room puts together a beautiful buffet display in its charming and beautiful restaurant. One can expect to taste Thanksgiving classics such as butternut squash soup, corn bread stuffing, candied sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, and of course the expected roasted turkey breast with cranberry relish. Soup, entrees, carving stations, salads, side dishes, deserts — you name it, the Tap Room has it covered.
Although the Tap Room is geared up and ready to go tomorrow, the holiday celebrations continue on. This is the holiday season, and for that, there is plenty to indulge in. There will be holiday-themed drink menus and deliciously crafted seasonal menus that offer a nice variety of quality options that you won’t be able to find elsewhere in town.
On Wednesday, November 26, and Friday, November 28, there will be a DJ playing at the Tap Room at 10 p.m. with a $5 cover. Make sure to come early to save your spot in line, because these nights host a completely packed venue every year. On Black Friday, just outside the Yankee Doodle Tap Room on the Green, the streets of Palmer Square fill up with spectators to watch the Annual Tree Lighting Spectacular at 4:45 p.m. Princeton loves to get into the spirit of the holidays.
