While most families have a traditional gathering on Thanksgiving Day, not everyone is doing that this year due to health concerns. Not to worry, if you are the one that is usually asked to just bring the pre-packaged rolls or salad mix, there are local restaurants waiting in the wings to take the place of the family cook. A new look to the holidays is just one more thing that 2020 is throwing at us, but just like everything else, we will get through it with a little help.

Don’t forget many places are taking orders and reservations already. Don’t wait to make your plans!
