It’s that special time of year again. The weather is getting colder, the leaves on the trees are changing from green to red, and we’ve got plenty of holiday celebrations and feasts on the horizon.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite local restaurants that are offering tasty Thanksgiving meals for pickup, so you can spend less time cooking and more time organizing your virtual family gatherings!
