Thanksgiving offers a wonderful opportunity for family to gather together each year. But let’s face it—if you’re the host, that opportunity can be pretty stressful, too. If you’re worrying about having the perfect table for Thanksgiving, we can help with these four simple tips from Haddad Nissan.
When setting the table, remember that the fork goes on the left, and the knife and spoon go on the right. If you’re hosting a lot of guests, you could even consider letting yourself use plastic cutlery for easier cleanup.
If your place setting will have multiple dishes, note that the side plate traditionally goes to the left of the place setting, with the drinks at the right.
If you plan to use elegant cloth napkins, feel free to make them one of the focal points of the table by arranging each on in a unique fold or display on the center of the plate. However, if the plates are what you’re showing off, it’s fine to simply tuck the napkin underneath its edge.
Add one last considerate touch by making DIY place cards for your guests. Not only is it a way to create a little organization in a crazy day, but it’s a personal touch that your guests will appreciate.
It’s been 20 years since the release of Gran Turismo, and the series of racing games, which were developed for PlayStation, have worked with Nissan from the beginning. In honor of that partnership, Nissan is celebrating this year by creating the coolest Gran Turismo-inspired remote-controlled car to date: the Nissan GT-R.
The Nissan GT-R is operated using a gaming controller, and brings the thrill of the Gran Turismo games to real life. The Nissan GT-R was tested with the help of Jann Mardenborough, a winner at the GT Academy, who controlled the Nissan GT-R from a helicopter up above the course. He was able to get the Nissan GT-R up to 131 mph and averaged 76 mph on his fastest lap.
During the drive, Mardenborough was able to monitor the car’s speed thanks to Racelogic VBOX Motorsport sensor installed in the car. It’s one of many advanced tools that make the Nissan GT-R possible, in addition to four robots, six computers, and two smart safety systems.
We’re happy to report, as well, that this car won’t be sitting around collecting dust. Its next tour is through primary and secondary schools in the UK, where it will be used as a means to promote STEM learning. After all, Nissan has always been inspirational in more than one way. It’s just one of many things Haddad Nissan loves about the company.
