Justin Pugh hosting ‘Friendsgiving’ feast for Giants offensive line
Justin Pugh is hosting “Friendsgiving” for the Giants offensive line on Friday and it’s going to be big.
“I’ve got my chef cooking for everybody,” Pugh said Tuesday. “We’ve got 65 pounds of turkey, we got a couple hams. (D.J.) Fluker wanted a fried turkey, so we got a fried turkey. John Jerry was requesting a turducken. So I don’t know what he’s gonna have prepared but it should be good.
“We’ve got cornbread, stuffing, appetizers, all sorts of appetizers,” Pugh added. “The thing I wanted to do is everybody doesn’t have a place to go, doesn’t have family or they live far away, they got some place to go. We’re all gonna be playing on Thanksgiving, so I figure do a little dinner on Friday night.” Read more.

Move over Thanksgiving: Friendsgiving Shabbat is my reason for the season
The table is set. There’s wine, candles, bread, and a feast larger than your dining room table. It’s a time to come together with the people you care about and give thanks for everything good in your life. And, thankfully, I’m not talking about Thanksgiving, I mean Friendsgiving Shabbat dinner.
Friendsgiving is just what it sounds like: giving thanks over a meal shared with your friends. Over the last few years it’s become ever more popular, even Taco Bell did an ad campaign about it. Many people choose to replace the whole Thanksgiving feast, complete with family tension and bland family recipes, with a day of just the people they actually want to be around. As the perfect opportunity to test out new recipes and brush off the dust on old family classics, I look forward to gathering my friends for the potluck extravaganza that is Friendsgiving on Friday.
