How to skip the line for Parkway Bakery’s Thanksgiving Po-boy

Parkway Bakery teams up with the Al Copeland Foundation to allow some diners to skip the line for their popular Thanksgiving Poboy for a good cause.

The neighborhood po-boy shop will say thanks to diners who make a $100 donation to the Al Copeland Foundation for the charitable campaign #IDidItForTheTurkey. Parkway made the announcement via its Facebook page.

The contribution gets you a monster Thanksgiving po-boy, an order of sweet potato fries, a cold drink of your choice or a pint of Abita 30° 90° on draft, a limited edition #IDidItForTheTurkey t-shirt. This all comes with the privilege to skip the regular Thanksgiving poor boy line (which stretches down the block).

“Just donating 100 bucks to cancer, you know it’s a worthy cause,” Parkway manager Justin Kennedy said in the Facebook video.

Parkway’s iconic Thanksgiving po-boy includes turkey, stuffing, gravy and cranberries topped on french bread. The special holiday menu item, usually served on Wednesdays in November, draws in serious crowds.

“Let’s band together; we got two local family-run restaurants,” Kennedy said in the video. “We teamed up some kind of way, and we’re going to do a hell of a good job,” he said.

The Al Copeland Foundation, named for the legendary New Orleans restaurateur, supports cancer research.
