5 places to get your Thanksgiving dinner without the hassle
From a snack shack to fine dining, there are plenty of places to let someone else do the cooking for you this year.
Thanksgiving will look a little different for many people this year. If your typical large gathering has been nixed due to COVID, maybe take the day off and do takeout instead.
You can socially distance, do less work and support your local restaurants, all in one shot. It’s a win all around!
Here are five places you can pick up dinner from on Thanksgiving.
