The chaos of Thanksgiving Day often brings the unexpected, like an overcrowded oven or spilled gravy, which can easily throw a wrinkle in holiday plans. Although we enjoy the age-old tradition of roasting a turkey and peeling potatoes, this year, we’re throwing in the towel and letting the experts do what they’re good at!
If you are tempted to ditch the hours of prep and the dirty dishes too, here are some local options, listed in alphabetical order, where you can pick up all or part of your Thanksgiving meal, because let’s face it, Thanksgiving is about the people around the table, not the tears cried over dry turkey. Here’s where to get Thanksgiving to-go this year.
