Did you know female turkeys don’t gobble and that the song “Jingle Bells” wasn’t meant to be about Christmas? It was meant to be sung on Thanksgiving.

Here’s another fun fact: you don’t actually have to cook your Thanksgiving meal this year. We’ve rounded up many local eateries that’ll take the cooking (and even hosting) burden off of you so that all you need to do is sit back, relax, and be thankful.

Keep your taters peeled on this list as we’ll continue to update it throughout the season. Also, act fast because a lot of these deals and dinners sell out quickly.
