Somehow it’s Thanksgiving already! We’ve had several restaurants and local businesses reach out to us with their Thanksgiving and Black Friday offerings, so we thought we’d share them with you. We’ve got something for everyone. From the coffee that will help you power through the all-day culinary campaign, to ready-made sides for those who need an easy way out, and even some great places to escape during the Big Day or while everyone is shopping their hearts out on BlackFriday! (of course, you can bring the fam too, if you want.)
We’ve broken the list down for deals on Wednesday, Thursday (Thanksgiving), and Black Friday, so you can quickly see what’s going on and when you can partake.
We may have forgotten something, so if you have something you think we should add, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave us a comment and we’ll add it to the list.
- Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse has a Prime Pair $49 Prix Fixe Menu Wednesday only.

Open for happy hour and dinner, Brick House will have its full menu of seasonal, chef-inspired dishes available for those who’ve had enough turkey while also offering up 80 craft beers and hand-crafted cocktails made by bar experts. Even better, football fans get prime seats for game-watching, whether its in one of Brick House’s soft leather recliners with a built-in beer glass holder and TV tray for dining, or a spot at the bar, or table for their whole party.
