Don't feel like cooking this Thanksgiving? Gothamist reports a holiday meal deal worth considering.

New York City landmark The Old Homestead Steakhouse has been serving its medium-rare wares for more than 100 years, and now the historic house of meat has something special for people who don't have T-Day plans, but do have a whole lot of cash: The $50,000 Thanksgiving Day Dinner.

As listed by Gothamist, the menu includes:

  • A 20-pound free-range turkey 
  • $465-per-pound piece of Wagyu beef imported from Japan

  • Sweet potatoes garnished with $1,600-per-ounce caviar
  • Pumpkin ice cream made with $4,200 eggnog sauce

Sounds good, but not quite $50,000 good, right? Well, don't put your wallet away just yet, there's more. You'll also get:

  • Four tickets to an upcoming Giants game (valued at $10,000)
  • One night at the Waldorf with room service and breakfast in bed (valued at $5,000)
  • Limo transportation while in NYC (valued at $2,000)
  • Fifth Avenue shopping spree (totaling $7,500)
  • A horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park

Alas, the list of goodies does not include a Taser-armed guard who will zap any family member who brings up politics or asks why you're not married yet, but if you have the cash, this seems like a good deal to us. Just think, no dishes to do and a limo is a great place to sleep off your tryptophan coma.
