Thanksgiving is on Its Way

A day dedicated to hanging out with friends and family, eating delicious food and watching football in a turkey-induced daze…how can you not love Thanksgiving? There’s only one problem. Someone has to cook all that delicious food. And, of course, someone has to clean it all up.

Don’t dread the holiday grunt work. This year, give yourself a break and maybe a little change of scenery. Switch it up, plan ahead, make reservations and get the family together for an unforgettable meal at one of NEPA’s finest restaurants.
