The way we celebrate it varies widely, but food plays a big role.  This is for those of you who decided not to cook this year and somehow blew by the great restaurants that were offering dinners to go.  That deadline passed.  If supermarket lines aren’t your idea of giving thanks, and you can breakaway from World Cup matches and all day American football, here’s a partial list of Westside restaurants.  

According to Open Table there are some restaurants that will be open for Thanksgiving and reservations are going fast. If you want to stay close to home, here are some options.

At Hotel Erwin you can get your grateful on with a Thanksgiving Menu paired with seasonal cocktails for $60 per person (Click here to make your reservation). Too stuffed to drive home?  You can also spend the night! Best rates HERE.
