Exciting news here at the Bistro: we’re going to be featured on an upcoming episode of “The List,” Scripps-Howard’s weeknightly TV news magazine that covers the biggest news trends by compiling lists of what people are talking about the most. Right now, a hot topic is “Thanksgivikkah” (some are spelling it “Thanksgivukkah”—take your pick!): the once-in-a-blue-moon confluence of Thanksgiving and the start of Hanukkah. Inspired by the chance to combine two holidays in one, people are doing everything from creating special “menurkeys” (menorahs shaped like turkeys) to sending special cards to planning menus combining the best traditions from both holidays…including suggestions from Ruth’s Thanksgivvikah menu. As a result, the folks at “The List” are stopping by to visit her in person and sample her suggestions.
No word on an air date yet, but you can see “The List” at 7 p.m. Monday through Friday on WEWS-TV Channel 5. “The List” also airs on WMAR-TV Channel 2 in Baltimore, WCPO-TV Channel 9 in Cincinnati, WPTV-TV Channel 5 in South Florida, WFTS-TV in Tampa (all at 7 p.m.), KNXV-TV Channel 15 in Phoenix (4:30 p.m.), and KJRH-TV Channel 2 in Tulsa, Oklahoma (6:30 p.m.), so if you have friends in those cities, let them know! We’ll tell you when we know which night Ruth’s feature will appear.
