Foodie Friday: Who’s Cooking Thanksgiving This Year?

Just imagine a Thanksgiving where you didn’t have to cook and could just relax on the couch – watching the Macy’s Parade, some football and catching up with friends and family outside of the kitchen. Or maybe even heading out for a nice meal with no cleanup duties. Which local restaurants and shops can help you out with Thanksgiving this year? Here are some great options for you!
