Standing up to the wide variety of flavors on the traditional Thanksgiving table is a tall order for a white wine, but few do it as well as a well-made Alsace Gewurztraminer. This wine, from the venerable and well-distributed Hugel firm, is powerful and concentrated, dry despite the sweet impression given by the voluptuous, spicy fruit. It's a long-finishing, gripping wine with flavors of peaches, pears, mulling spices and a hint of orange. If you're serving turkey and you can't find this at the last minute, ask a knowledgeable wine merchant to recommend an Alsace Gewurztraminer or pinot gris.

On Thursday afternoon, as most of America fusses over basting and trussing, Tracey Despeaux will be pulling into Ravens stadium with a movable feast. From the back of her purple-painted bus, she'll unload turkey, yams, string beans and corn, pies, ham, rolls and potatoes. She'll arrange the bounty around festive dried husks and pumpkin-scented candles. Then she and the rest of the Pasadena Ravens Roost will gather round fold-out tables to enjoy Thanksgiving. "Everybody sitting down together," Despeaux says.

Yeardley Smith, 39, has been the voice of perennial 8-year-old Lisa Simpson on The Simpsons since it started in 1986. The role earned her an Emmy Award in 1992. A few weeks ago, she opened at New York's Union Square Theatre in More, an autobiographical one-woman show encompassing her thirst for celebrity, her struggle with bulimia and other travails from which she manages to wring laughs by the bellyful. (The show will play through April 18.) What possessed you? I wrote More because I wasn't getting that much work.

THE CLOCK IS ticking for members of the Northeast High School Dionysus Club. It is seven days until opening night for the drama group's latest production, Agatha Christie's "The Mousetrap." Young actors are hard at work fine tuning lines and gestures, subtly bringing their characters to life. Other drama club members are busy behind the scenes, creating backdrops and props, getting ready to transform the Pasadena school stage into the snowbound Berkshire hotel where the murder mystery unfolds.

Over the river and through the woods to the Union Hotel we go. The river is the Susquehanna, and there are miles of interstate before you get to the woods. Still, at the end of your journey is a place so steeped in history I can't imagine a more appropriate setting for Thanksgiving dinner. (As of this writing, the Union Hotel will have as the special on Thanksgiving Day a turkey dinner, or you can order from the regular menu.)The Union Hotel, built in the late 18th century, isn't a hotel but a restaurant.

Like most people preparing for Thanksgiving dinner, Kathy Brown has compiled a lengthy grocery list, four pages worth of everything from turkey to condiments to scouring pads. Brown, the director of Shepherd's Staff, a Westminster charity, will be serving turkey and trimmings to about 500. She hopes, amid the preparations, she won't be going to the food store. Brown is looking for donors to fill her list. Shepherd's Staff, a ministry to the needy in Carroll County, is organizing its 11th annual free Thanksgiving dinner.

FIRST CAME the non-alcoholic cocktails and iced shrimp, served in the peach silk and velvet drawing room. Then a butler rang a silver dinner bell summoning the two dozen women to the opulent, candle-lit table where Thanksgiving dinner was about to be served.We were all strangers to one another; strangers who, nine years ago, suddenly found ourselves gathered together to celebrate this most familial of holidays.At dinner I was seated next to a woman wearing a small, diamond tiara who, without introducing herself, told me: "I've taken exercise classes from Jane Fonda.

Zinfandel and the traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner are one of those matches that are hard to understand but that work anyway. You think turkey, white meat, maybe a chardonnay. But it's wrong. There's a lot more to turkey than the breast, and a lot more to the feast than the turkey. It takes a big wine to hold its own with the gravy and the green beans and the stuffing and the yams, which seem to come around to you three times even though you can't stand yams. The zinfandel does nothing better than produce big red wines fit for a feast.
