If you're in a spot finding food this Thanksgiving, Ocean Cafe has got you covered.
The quaint corner diner located on the corner building at 144 North Main St. across from Shaw's Meat Market will offer its five tables to all comers, up to 200 of them, from 11 a.m. till 2 p.m. Thursday.
"This is the second year I'm doing it," said Jose Mendosa, the restaurant's owner. Last year, they served about 100 meals, and are prepared to serve double that number. If more than that show up, Medosa said, he'll be out of food, unfortunately, but next year might be even bigger.
This year he's got two turkeys, two porks and rice and beans, among other staples.
Mendosa said he put the first one on for regular customers. "It's kind of a gift to the people keeping you in business," he said. But, he added, "Everybody's welcome."
Mendosa won't be on his own providing Thanksgiving hospitality - Calvary Worship Center is offering a free night filled with great food, friends and fellowship tonight at 7 p.m. "We encourage everyone to come out with your families and give God thanks for all He has done!," their Facebook event reads.
