A Veritable Cornucopia of Thanksgiving Ribaldry in SF

My Thanksgiving was super boring. I watched USC vs. Arizona St. and ate pie. Such is not the case for Cornucopia, where people pull knives on each other and smoke pot -- possibly at the same time -- on the day we engorge delicious turkey and whatnot. PR's got something to say:

CORNUCOPIA

Ah Thanksgiving, a time of murder, adultery, deception, racism, sexism, nepotism, egotism and pot smoke-ism. Sound familiar? We thought so. And hey, even if your relatives employ none of the above during family dinners, you’ll certainly be entertained by a family that does. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll drink a beer, and surrender yourself to a comedy of manners with rapid fire dialogue that will leave you wondering how you went so long without it. And in case you didn’t know, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the San Francisco Food Bank.
