THANKSGIVING DAY

  • NATIONALS YOUTH BASEBALL ACADEMY – Medium Rare Restaurants is partnering with the Washington Nationals for its 12th Annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Fry from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Because of social distancing and occupancy guidelines, Medium Rare can’t hold its iconic event as usual at one of its locations. Instead, the Nationals have provided a new location for the event at the ballpark, assuring the tradition continues while allowing for all social distancing protocols to be followed. In addition, earlier on Thanksgiving morning, Medium Rare will be frying turkeys for all of the DC Fire Houses before the Nats Park location is opened to the public.
