Gobble gobble, circa 1948

More from the way-back machine: Sacramento, 1948.

If you made dinner at home, perhaps you would have picked up a turkey from American Poultry Company and some rolls from Muzio Bakery. If you forgot to pick up some candy or adult beverages, no worries -- Tower Drug is open *and* they deliver!

Perhaps you'll be heading over to Hughes Stadium for the City Championship Football Game between the C.K. McClatchy High Lions and the Sacramento High Dragons. (Spoiler alert -- the Lions won that year!)

Feeling like dining out? You have lots of choices around town. The menu at Rosemount Grill and Cocktail Lounge includes whole Pacific baby lobster. How about some roast domestic duckling at Hotel Sacramento? Baked Virginia Ham at the Hotel El Rancho as you enjoy music for dancing by Ernie Hecksher and His Orchestra? Not interested in the usual Thanksgiving fare? Boitano's has the usual stuff plus spaghetti raviolis. Don't know what time to bring your brood over for Thanksgiving Dinner? Bring 'em any time between 12 noon and 12:30 A.M. to Frasinetti's!

And -- don't forget to head to Downtown Sacramento to do your shopping the day after Thanksgiving.

Which reminds me -- be at the corner of 10th & K at noon tomorrow for the unveiling of a window display just like they used to do at Breuner's. Here's an old ad from 1948:
