Like many holidays celebrated this different year, Thanksgiving will be a bit different than previous years. Instead of slaving away over multiple dishes and cooking a massive turkey, consider take out and let the pros handle the tough work all while supporting local businesses. Leave the cooking to local restaurants who are whipping up something special for Thursday.
Be sure to wear a mask and socially distance when picking up orders.
