Instead of making a feast from scratch for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner, why not make something much easier—reservations? Many local restaurants are pulling out all the stops for their Thanksgiving specials to make sure your meal with friends and family will be just as memorable as it would be at home. (And we’ll let you in on a little secret: Thanksgiving dinner tastes even better when someone else cooks it!)
