ArtsRiot chefs team up with comrades from Pingala Café for a vegan Thanksgiving throwdown even a carnivore could love. Seitan roulade and porcini gravy form the centerpiece of a buffet menu featuring massaged kale, golden-beet-and-sweet-corn fritters, cider-maple-glazed root vegetables, Julia Child's mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole. Live music and games keep the mood light.

Early Thanksgiving: Sunday, October 28, 5 p.m., ArtsRiot, Burlington. $20-30. Info, 540-0406,
