New Yorkers are the coolest. Case in point: Last Sunday, a group of New Yorkers hosted a surprise Thanksgiving dinner... on the SUBWAY!
The event took three months to plan, and it included the traditional dishes you would expect to see on a Thanksgiving dinner table, including a full turkey.
Comedian Jodell Lewis, the mastermind behind the event, told media outlets the meal took three months to plan.
"Three months ago, I mentioned it to a friend Dupree, and we just started putting a plan into motion," Lewis said.
"For three months, we thought about what we'd want to have on the menu," Lewis said, as well as where to get decorations and tables. The group also had to consider which train to host the feast on, as they wanted to pick a route that would be the least disruptive to commuters.
The group eventually decided on the L train, which has been under construction for months and only runs every 20 minutes on nights and weekends.
"I realized how unhappy New Yorkers were with this construction," Jodell said of the L train. "I just knew that tensions were high and that providing people with a service like this — something free, something fun, something colorful — would just turn these people's anger into smiles."
Pretty freaking cool. Check it out:
