Good morning Dorie - they are some great choices.  Some people have gatherings in Restaurants on Thanksgiving.  We did a Williamsburg VA several years ago.

Yes, make reservations. Many years ago our family decided to have Thanksgiving out, but even though we had a reservation, the restaurant goofed. They squeezed us in to accomodate us, but since then we have Thanksgiving at our home!

Hi Dorie,
Sure looks like some nice options for those who don't want to cook.  I've only done the dine-out thing a very few times in my life... usually when we had no kids and it was just the two of us.  Thanks for sharing.

What a thoughtful post as many go out instead of cook on Thanksgiving day.  It is the first time in a few years that we are home, just could not fathom another plane trip this month...and we have another one in December coming up.  A

YUM! All sound wonderful, Dorie! Funny but, I had a client new to Charlotte, ask me last week if I knew of a place that would be open for Thanksgiving! I told her I would compile a list and send it to her. Well, it became a blog post on my site...and then here, of course! LOL

Like you, I can't get over how Thanksgiving has crept up on us! Our lives are going too fast, aren't they?!!
