You're thankful for wine, aren't you? How about local wine? Jowler Creek Vineyard & Winery
(16905 Jowler Creek Road, Platte City, 816-858-5528) wants to help you pick out the perfect bottle to go with your turkey-day dinner, and it doesn't matter if you're going plain Hungry-Man, working the deep-fried bird or rocking a Tofurky. Try all seven of Jowler Creek's wines (we lean toward the Chambourcin when it comes to poultry), with small plates of traditional Thanksgiving bites, for $5. A rich Norton with stuffing? A bold blush with your pecan pie? You decide. The Thanksgiving wine pairing runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. yesterday and today. See jowlercreek.com
