Updated: Nov 17, 2020

If there was ever a year to order Thanksgiving from a restaurant, this is it.

Imagine: no masked trips to the grocery store or need to spend all day in the kitchen for a group that's sure to be much smaller this holiday season.

Plus, now that chilly weather is back and outdoor dining becomes less appealing, local restaurants could use our help.
