Dear Friends,

Be sure to keep Max’s Restaurant & Cucina in mind for Thanksgiving breakfast and lunch. We are conveniently located at 3514 State Street, in Santa Barbara’s Upper State St. area. This makes our Santa Barbara family restaurant the perfect stop before any of your Thanksgiving events or holiday shopping.

If you are looking for a place to enjoy a delicious breakfast or lunch on Thanksgiving day, be sure to join us at Max’s Restaurant. We will be serving our Santa Barbara breakfast and lunch favorites on THANKSGIVING DAY, November 26, from 7:00 am until 1:00 pm, and hope to see you there! Bring your out-of-town guests and introduce them to Santa Barbara dining at its best.

If you eat too much turkey over the Holiday, you might want to book an appointment with Santa Barbara pilates professional Chanda Fetter to help you get back in shape!

 Or if you would prefer relaxation instead of exercise, see Chrys across the street at Qui Si Bella Spa!

It was great to see everyone out supporting D.A.W.G. at the Wine for Wags at Oreana Winery.  With your generosity and support we can continue to help the dogs of Santa Barbara County!

Be sure to look for upcoming comedy nights in Santa Barbara, no corkage fee Wednesdays, and other nights of food and fun at Max’s. Visit our website and join our eClub for special discounts and coupons.

Thanksgiving Humor from Max’s Restaurant

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for everything we have. But it can also be a great time for a little humor, too. Here are some Thanksgiving jokes you can enjoy and share with your family:

  • What happened when the turkey got into a fight? He got the stuffing knocked out of him! We’re sure there will be plenty of stuffing on the table for Thanksgiving dinner!
  • What smells the best at a Thanksgiving dinner? Your nose! Although there are great smells at Max’s every day!
  • What is a turkey’s favorite dessert? Peach gobbler! We’ve got a tasty variety of homemade desserts to please any turkey’s palate at Max’s.
  • What do you wear to Thanksgiving dinner? A Har-VEST. Don’t worry about your attire at Max’s Restaurant. We’re Santa Barbara casual every day. Just come and have a great time.
  • If the Pilgrims were alive today, what would they be most famous for? Their AGE! People of all ages love to eat at Max’s. From our Santa Barbara brunch to our Italian cuisine, we love to feed every member of the family.
  • Why did the police arrest the turkey? They suspected it of fowl play. There is no fowl play at Max’s – just good food, great service, and fun times.
  • If fruit comes from a fruit tree, where does turkey come from? A poul-tree! We’ve got plenty of poultry items on our menu – and some pretty good meat and fish items, too!
  • A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldn’t find one big enough. She asked a stock boy, “Do these turkeys get any bigger?” “No, ma’am. They’re dead.” Don’t worry – there is plenty of food for your family at Max’s!


Want to hear more jokes? Join us on December 13 for Max’s 2nd Sunday Dinner Comedy Night for delicious food and hilarious comedy with Carol Metcalf and friends. The comedy starts at 7:30 PM for $10, and dinner is available from 5:00 PM.

Happy Holidays From Our Family To Yours

Italian Restaurant In Santa Barbara Wishes You Happy Thanksgiving

Dear Friends,

We would like to thank the patrons and staff of Toma Restaurant and Bar for another wonderful year. We are grateful to our customers for their support and enthusiasm, and for making us your romantic waterfront dining destination.   Special thanks to our Executive Chef Nat Ely for his extraordinary offerings. Take the time this Thanksgiving to enjoy the company of friends and family.

Warm Regards,

Toma’s Turkey Trivia:

  1. Although most people consider Plymouth Massachusetts to be the site of the original Thanksgiving feast, this fact has been disputed. There are other states that have claimed this distinction including Texas, Florida and Maine.

  2. It is estimated that Americans consume a whopping 46 million turkeys each year at Thanksgiving!

  3. The tradition of the Thanksgiving football game goes back to 1876 when Yale played Princeton but it didn’t become an NFL tradition until Thanksgiving 1934.

  4. Starting with President Truman in 1947, it has become an annual Thanksgiving tradition for the President of the United States to grant pardon to select turkeys.

  5. Rumor has it that Swanson’s invented the first TV dinner as a result of having a surplus of frozen turkeys left after slow Thanksgiving sales.

  6. The United States boast three turkey-monikered  towns: Turkey Texas, Turkey North Carolina and Turkey Creek Los Angeles.

  7. The dangling flesh at a male turkey’s neck is called a “wattle”. It is red when they are trying to attract a mate, but will turn blue if they are startled or scared.

  8. Turkeys are a type of pheasant.  Male turkeys are referred to as “Toms” while females are “Hens”.  Baby turkeys are “poults”, young males are “Jakes” and young females are “Jennys”.

  9. It is typically assumed that turkeys can’t fly.  While this might be true of most domesticated birds, their wild counterparts can fly at speeds up to 55 mph and run as fast as 20 mph!

  10. Only Toms gobble.

  11. June, not November, is National Turkey Lovers Month.

  12. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the Turkey that makes you sleepy after Thanksgiving Day dinner.  It may be a combination of excessive amounts of carbs, overeating and alcohol consumption.

  13. According to recent surveys, approximately 88% of Americans have turkey at Thanksgiving.

  14. Turkeys see in color.

  15. It was Gimbel’s department store that organized the first Thanksgiving Day parade back in 1920.  Macy’s didn’t have theirs until 1924.
