byBrian Clarey With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s a good time to do some eating outside the home before the leftovers pile up in the fridge.

A good place to start is in downtown Greensboro, where food trucks won a victory in city council — they are now allowed to operate on private property after the pilot program ends at the end of this month.

And a Firehouse Subs — known for “steamed subs, whatever that is — has opened in Greensboro, on Battleground Avenue.

And the Cobblestone farmers Market is now selling signature T-shirts. Get them at the Tuesday or Saturday markets or at their Facebook page.

On Wednesday, Mozelle’s in Winston-Salem holds an Opa! Greek wine dinner at 7 p.m. As of press time, some seats were still available. Call 336.703.5400 to make a reservation.

On Thursday, Greensboro Urban Ministry holds its annual feast of Caring, 5 p.m. at First Baptist Church, 1000 W. Friendly Ave. There will be soup and bread, pottery, music by Jim Carson and Bobby Doolittle and the unveiling of the annual holiday card designed by William Mangum. No reservations are necessary.

Papa Murphy’s take-and-bake pizza begins its holiday food drive on Friday. There will also be a Beaujolais nouveau tasting at Whole Foods Market in Winston-Salem beginning at 6 p.m.

All weekend long, Total Wine & More will be exploring Thanksgiving wine pairings at all three Triad locations.

On Saturday, Old Salem holds a garden workshop, Gifts from the Harvest at 10 a.m. at the Single Brothers Workshop. The Grove Winery holds a syrah release party at noon. And Whole Foods Markets in GHreensboro and Winston-Salem hold their Taste f Thanksgiving event, featuring samples, recipes, demos, giveaways and more beginning at 1 p.m.

Sunday at the Winston-Salem Whole Foods is Shrimpsgiving. There will be shrimp.

And if you want to order a deep-fried Thanksgiving turkey from Bojangle’s, an annual and delicious holiday tradition, you better move your ass. They stop taking orders this week.
