NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- To commemorate the last time two iconic all-American institutions will converge – the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and Times Square – the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan presents the Farewell to Macy's Day Parade Thanksgiving Package, taking advantage of the hotel's proximity to the parade route. The package is based on a three night stay of any combination of dates that includes Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24 and Farewell to Macy's Day Parade-ers will be grateful for the opportunity to indulge in a buffet as eye-popping as the parade's famous giant balloons for either Thanksgiving brunch or dinner. Both will be served in the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan's retro-chic Brasserie 1605, with its walls of windows overlooking Broadway and Times Square.
For 80 years, one of the world's most famous parades has marched through Times Square in the heart of New York City on the way to its finale at its namesake department store. A tradition that ends with the 2011 edition, due to a re-routing that will send the Macy's Day Parade down the Avenue of the Americas (a.k.a. 6th Avenue). So this is the last year the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan will be so close to the Thanksgiving Day action, just a particularly short city block away – a "mini-block" created by the junction of 7th Avenue and Broadway which defines the boundaries of Times Square. In fact, Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan Farewell to Macy's Day Parade Thanksgiving Package participants need only step out the hotel's front door, look right and up for an opportunity to spy the parade's high-flying balloons as they enter the Crossroads of the World.
Whether they join the crowds on the 7th Avenue parade route or merely peek out the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan's front door, Farewell to Macy's Day Parade-ists well eat exceptionally well for either Thanksgiving brunch or dinner at Brasserie 1605. Each buffet will boast an abundance of choice: lavish salad and charcuterie displays; a delectable array of hot dishes, such as herbed garlic crusted tenderloin, roasted sweet and sour onions, braised black beans, toasted pine nuts and butternut squash ravioli, baby spinach, roasted tomatoes, pignoli nuts, sage butter sauce; a carving station featuring bourbon Red Heritage turkey, savory cornbread stuffing with apricot and sage, natural giblet pear and Port gravy and orange and Bing cherry glazed Berkshire ham with Champagne sauce, rhubarb chutney and a sumptuous selection of sweets.
