The Tucson Tamale Company is making Thanksgiving tamales again. Turkey, potatoes, stuffing and veggies wrapped in sage masa make for very tasty bundles of turkey-day joy. More information here.

Speaking of holiday eats, Govinda’s is holding its meatless Thanksgiving feast from noon to 8 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 25. If you’ve never been, the food is pretty good, and it’s almost worth showing up just to see Curly Sue, the very alive turkey, strolling around. Call 792-0630, or click here for more information.

Also submitted for your approval: Thanksgiving dinner on a bun.

Aaron DeFeo, the beverage program manager at Hotel Congress and Maynards Market and Kitchen, has another cocktail class coming up. This one focuses on using aged spirits to make cocktails. More information here.

We should also mention that Dan Gibson, the Tucson Weekly's web producer, debuts his series of cocktail videos this week. The first one, featuring Jasper Food and Mixology, is expected to be up soon. Check for it here.

It looks like Lindy’s on Fourth might show up on another national food show. Meat and Potatoes was recently at the restaurant is planning to film an upcoming episode at the restaurant in January, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page. Co-owner Lindy Reilly wasn’t in when we called, but we’ll let you know more when we get in touch with him. Lindy’s made its televised debut last year on Man V. Food.

The producers from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives have also been sniffing around. They were just doing some preliminary checking around, however, and there's no word if a show featuring Tucson is in the works.

We had our first macaroni-and-cheese pizza from CiCi’s Pizza yesterday. We’re not sure if the noodles were technically macaroni, but it was a perfect slab of weird, alfredo-and-something goodness, and I ate the entire thing. I had to. Nobody else in my family would touch it.

A fundraiser featuring traditional Colombian foods takes place this Friday, and the money raised will be used to help feed refugee families in Colombia. There’s more information in this week’s Noshing Around column.

And lastly, Copper Kettle Popcorn at 3701 W. Ina Road has closed.
