As the holidays approach, so do the special meals that often accompany them. For many, the tradition of Thanksgiving dinner is a way to help celebrate family and share in our gratitude while indulging in some good food together. While some prefer to enjoy a home-cooked meal at home, there are several local options to skip the cooking this year and enjoy Thanksgiving dinner out on the town or order takeout Thanksgiving to enjoy from home.
